I have two of these gen 2 4x4s, I would very highly recommend buying two lukes links off the web, one for the long tierod, one for the track rod. once you replace those two items, you have easily rebuildable inexpensive repairs, vs each of those two rods are pretty pricey, I used to replace that hated track rod quite frequently, on both trucks, until I saw that neat invention. No more grief. I am not advertizing, its simply a good, permanent fix to a common failure area, now, if I could just stop my trucks from rusting, rockers, and rear wheelwells, and bottoms of doors...Make sure the secondary hood latch springs back when you pull it, too, I have destroyed two hoods in the last 10 years or so, meeting fast moving road tractors, lots of lube on that secondary hood catch pivot... Hood hinges are expensive, (as are hoods)
