You're on it, probably not a ball joint, but very likely a u-joint or bearing. Safely jack up that left front corner. Grab the wheel at top and bottom and move it in and out. If it moves, do it side...

From the actuator on the t case, there's 4 vacuum lines. 2 go to the front right axle to couple it when you shift into 4wd. 1 is a vent, and one goes up to the engine for vacuum supply. I suspect...

Goin by Walker, they list different part numbers for those 2 trucks. In the photo, the 98 goes into the cat as 2 pipes, on the 01 it's just 1. I would imagine it will bolt up to your manifolds, the...

DO NOT use any sort of abrasive on the block surface. It's not needed, and any abrasive, bristle discs, scotch brie, anything, will get into the oiling system and take out bearings. Every maker has a...

If you have a good junkyard in your area, they can tell you if that swap will work. I think it should. The biggest issue is if they are the same trans. If not, linkages and for sure computer control...

OK, here's your options. Either the cam lobe is wiped, the lifter collapsed, the spring has totally given up, or the valve is stuck open. I doubt the lobe is wiped, you should have noticed that...

Take it to a good shop that has a Motorvac machine. I have fixed more than I can recall by doing this. The 5.2, 5.9, and the V10 of that gen respond to it better that any I have ever seen.
