I like to think of it as a little extra suspension travel...
What a PIA it was to fix that mess. Since the joints complete separated, couldn't do the usual method of a pickle fork to pull them out of the knuckle. Thankfully I had popped the $160 for the 'deluxe' ball joint press and was able to press them out with that after taking a cutoff wheel to them since the nuts were fused to the knuckle too. New ball joints on both sides now, 4 new control arms, softlines, calipers, rod ends. New axle shaft on the left (yes, I have one that fits finally
) and new axle joint on the right. New rear u-joint but driving around today I realized I should have done the front one while I had the drive shaft out as I still have a clunk. Duh. The front diff was completely dry so filled that and took it out in the woods a bit this afternoon to check out the 4x4, works great. Next, is rear brakes and gas tank straps. Right now the gas tank is held up by two ratchet straps...
