foolioGrimz will become famous soon enough

these trucks are notorious for needing front end work. While ur at it get the ball joints replaced. I switched out just about everything on mine.. tie rods, ball joints, pittman arm, idler arm. Do the work yourself if you can Ive heard quotes of up to $1,500 for a shop to do it and you can get all the parts yourself for less than $500 if I remember correctly. I'll warn you that it is a PITA but well worth saving a thousand bucks in my opinion.

edit: there are two things you can count on with these trucks, You're going to lose the ball joints and the dash is going to crack. Other than that ive found it to be very reliable.
