Hmmm. After pulling the wheels and having a close look at things, I noticed that the ball joint on my center link near the pitman arm is the culprit of my woe. The thing is so loose, I'm surprised I can drive. Also, the rubber protectors on just about every ball joint on the rack is ripped, so I ditched replacing the lower arms until next week when I can do it all at once. I am also going to order thrust arms, outside steering rods and strut bearings. Might as well...

I am postponing the rebuild of my entire front suspention till next Sat. If anyone is interested in helping out, I'll need help drinking the quality brew that I had bought for today.

Well, I guess I'll just switch to Irish scotch and relax the rest of the day.
