i was driving home wednesday night and i was pulling into my yard when i heard the right front side collapse...my lower ball joint broke. what made me even madder was the fact that i had a full allignment done on it that very same morning. they were supposed to check the ball joints and they didn't...it cost me 65 to get it towed, and 138 to get new ball joints on both sides
here is a pic of what happened...sorry for the quality of the pics, it was dark and the nightvision wasn't working too well

Holy sh!t, now that tucking some rim man, lol, did that mess up your rim any? Truck looks good, lots better than the before pic.

nah...i was lucky...i was barely moving when it gave out. i'm very lucky because most of my driving is 80 mph on the interstate. if it would've happened there i'd probably be dead right now

LOOKS SWEET MY ONLY SUGGESTION IS TO GET A ROLLPAN!
Do you have that bound to a key or something? Because you tell everybody that. Or ask them how much their paint job costs. :tool:

BTW, truck looks good, man! :thumbup: Sorry about the ball joint.

i scrape in some places but its not too bad. i have to use ramps to get into my garage now though because my driveway isn't concrete. i haven't scraped any speed bumps. you just have to be careful.

what can do about the chevy lean? i know about the spacer from belltech and i'll get that for up front, the rear end also sits about an inch lower on the driver's side. i don't really want to go with 2" block if i don't have to. is there another way of leveling it out?
