    Default Its going to be a bad day tater! Need new front suspension

    Well yesterday I had my 3" leveling kit and found out that I need to pretty much replace the whole front end. better to find out now then later I guess, It just sucks that I was excited to get my new lifted truck back today and instead looks like it will be sitting at the garage for probably another week. oh joy.

    Must have been all factory original. You will probably see a big differance how it steers and handles. You don't realize how worn things are until you install new parts.

    Well if they use upgraded parts then they should last longer since they are greasable when upgraded...
