      As some of you may have seen I had a collision in my 200. Luckily I am almost done with the repairs. Thanks to dbenke’s expertise we were able to get the upper and lower ball joints pressed in and the new CV axle installed. Also had to replace...

      My step Dad is Semi retired and is working on land cruisers and other older vehicles. If they give me a hard time I’ll have him write me up an invoice to send them.

      I am fortunate that my Step Dad used to be a mechanic and knows a lot of tricks of the trade. Rented a ball joint press. Used a 1/2 inch impact to get part way there then a breaker bar with a piece of 1”pipe about 4’long and a little hammering...

      Now that we have replaced the right front upper and lower ball joints, hard and soft brake lines, and the CV Axle the truck is back on the road. Still have to install the new front bumper and some OEM parts ( headlights, lower, control arm, and...

      I’m about to swap out the other ball joint with a Moog K500018 to match what we fixed on the side that failed. From everything I’ve seen the upper arm is fine they just used an inferior ball joint. Once I get the other upper ball joint done I...

      We replaced the upper with a Moog to get back on the road. New set of UCA’s are supposed to be in the way. If they aren’t here soon I may go ahead and replace the other side with the Moog. Going to relic run in a few weeks and not wanting to...

      Thanks. I have already been in touch. They are sending me a new set of UCA’s and will be covering installation labor and an alignment.

      Just joined 35” club. For the 200 anyway. Been on 35’s for 20 years in my fj40. Running a 2” Ironman lift with 17 x 8.5” Icon rebound wheels. Just replaced 34x 10.50 BFG’s. They were pretty good but on the smallish side. *** had to remove the...

      174k. I put the UCA’s on a couple years ago. The ball joints came pre installed and they don’t have a zerk fitting like the Moog’s do

      If you have the Forged UCA’s and haven’t replaced them or at least replaced the Upper Ball Joints yet. I’d get on it. I’ve never seen a ball joint come apart like that. I was in LE for 26 years and worked a lot of collisions. I’ve seen them shear...

      Last week was some highs and lows. The 200 got some new shoes then the next day I wrecked it. 🤦‍♂️ Luckily I was only doing about 30. Upper ball joint on the passenger side came apart and the tire flipped over shoving the steering to the drivers...

      Thanks for the response not real particular about the color on interior parts. This will be his first car and will be wheeled. Mainly looking to make everything work and make it as safe as possible. I’ll probably put seat cover in it anyway.

      This is an 80 that is going to be Grays first car. Turns 15 in March. It’s in pretty good shape for a 91 but needs a little love. Looking for a set of seats. Some miscellaneous plastic pieces and a drivers floor pan. If anyone is parting out an...
