For how much?

It doesn't need to misalign, so imo a giant bolt is the perfect solution.

YotaAtieToo 1" grade 8 (or CAT if you really want beef) should be stronger than a king pin.

yes 1" bolt and welded in and bolted so actually have something holding the ball joint in. stock its just a press in upper with no snap ring or anything so pretty easy for the knuckle to come off when something lets go

snowracer quick race recap

when we showed up after driving 20 hours on some of the worst highways ever they had almost no snow at the race. lucked out and it dumped over 2 feet in 24hours but was nasty snow that just turned into ice.



lined up and racing 12 trucks at the same time is just crazy





got to the "undertaker" and thats when shit it the fan. was trying to make it and just kept ramming the front tire into the ledge. lower ball joint blew apart and the knuckle came off





even after braking and being stuck on the trail it was all smiles and helping other racers out.





once the race was over he got dragged out and ran into town and picked up some new ball joints. we pounded them in and put the knuckle back on and drove the truck on the trailer.

I saw some pictures of him on Facebook with everything all blown apart. Looked like an expensive first lap. Looks like such a fun event though I would love to get up there to at least spectate some time.

DMANbluesfreak It's always something "easy" that causes the worst breakage, it seems. Good luck getting it back together!
12-27-2019 09:48 AM
snowracer not much to update other then he swapped out his front coils for some firmer ones and seems to like it better. we went out for a quick test run to make sure everything is good before insanity fab. right at the end of the day the fat ass truck broke through the ice and got really stuck. i was way a head and did not know what happened. when he was trying to get out the driver side axle or ujoint let go. so now its race to find a replacement inner and outer before we leave to go race

Looking at the grill on the truck I'm guessing its pre-05 so its a 2 valve motor?

Whats the trans plan? Gonna run one of the 2 4R100's? Rebuild one of them with strong bits? ZF6? Other? Too early?
yes the parts truck is a 2v but so is his 5.4 so that will make it a nice easy swap. plan is to run the 4r100 as thats what he has no so wont have to change anything. he got the truck running but has a miss and he has changed all the coils. for now it will sit and wait till after Insanity fab as just dont want to chance running into issues with the swap when the 5.4 is race ready
