So, I work at a 79 year old Dodge (amongst other things) dealer here in Ohio.

About 2 months ago, I noticed some clunking noise coming from up front. Turns out my upper passenger ball joint was loose.

Fast forward to now and a time when I can finally get her on the rack in our shop for repairs...

With just over 90,000 miles, it's a bit worse. All four ball joints are bad. Then, they also notice my tie rod ends are worn out. Awesome.

I give the go-ahead and it's on the rack. Then they ask me about the coolant leaking. Ehh?

I guess last night, in fear of her impending surgery today, she pee'd herslef. Yeah, blew a heater core hose.

We're quickly headed for $1,000+ here. Keep you posted...

Got her back, and the suspension and steering is tight as a new one. Better than when I got her! :)
