Been skeptical to really put a ton into it, even though I know they run forever, just a skeptic I guess. This has been an encouraging thread and now my rig is gonna get some extra loving!

Fun to hear everyones stories! Jealous of the low-mileage find for sure.
Never ever put aftermarket lower control arms on these trucks. Plenty of info here to read before doing it wrong. (buy once cry once) Either OEM LCA's or replace the bushings with something high quality like prothane, oem, whiteline, energy etc. NO MOOG anything.
