Wish it didn't take a week for my posts to show up. Hopefully a couple more and I will get over the hump.
I don't remember where I left off. Yesterday I made the repair from my nephew's mishap. He ended up breaking the front shock tower, bulkhead, 1 tie rod end, one of the posts on the LCG lower tray and he slightly bent the Hot Racing Steering bellcrank. I didn't see him crash but I must have been pretty substantial. Well, back to the Hobby Shop
Went with the RPM shock tower, matching blue LCG lower tray, blue RPM short tie rod caps, STRC blue aluminum bulkhead, STRC oversized blue aluminum hub carriers (justified this by figuring I will have the front end apart anyway) and proline extended body mount kit. Also picked up a pair of RPM offset compensating A-arms for back up or whenever I decide to pick up a set of 2.8 tires.
After install and steering adjustments all is well. Truck is beautiful and stupid fast. Hopefully this weekend is decent so my son can go somewhere safe to beat on it instead of bashing in the street into curbs / benches / cars etc. I will post some pics soon.
