    Well Lash I might just give it a try. Or maybe I'll drive to your side of the state and let you at it! I'm sure I can manage, and maybe learn something along the way. If I do my buddy will want to do his Falcon that way as well.

    The hood looks great by the way.

    It's a Moog point

    Got these today.. great price from Rock auto $17.92 each, from Rock Auto, and USA made to boot... now my front end is almost all made in USA...decide not to go with the heim joints on the tie rod...they even beat the prices from Napa...Auto Zone and with the $20 shipping fee from speedway...well they matched that price..but in the quality department...they excelled

    Dumb ass

    I received My 4130 chrome-moly tie rod what a thing of beauty...very well made nice threads that are as they should be and not like the loose Speedway crap..was a few bucks more but worth it..by the time I pay the local metal guy at $10 per ft with a 5 foot min. and the price of 2 taps...it came out even and being moly it is next to impossible to hand tap...so any way I got it installed...set the toe...stood back and looked at it...crap one wheel looks in to far and the other out to far so I climb back under...remeasured every thing...looked good...push the truck out of the shop...stand back and take a look from further back...still looks all cockeyed and on top of that the tops of the tires look canted in at the top like the camber is off...what the hell....so I sit there looking at this thing scratching my head till hair is coming out...then it hit me, when I changed out the spring mounts for the swivel type...I never reset the trail (wish bones) and the axle was out of square to the frame....ddduuuhhhhh...so I did get it all squared away...but the one thing that does not look right is the camber...but my meter shows it is good...and the axle checked out when I re-woked it...some of it maybe wheel bearings are a little loose and should be zeroed to really tell...once every thing is in and the suspension settles it will all have to be gone thru again...more adjustments than a parallel spring set up...but I will say the front end is going to ride nice compared to the stock one

    More adjustments, but that just means you have those adjustments too! Could be worse, like parallel spring setups where you don't have those easy adjustments you can make.
