At full droop mine bound up a bit. I'm Not talking about at ride height. He likely will be fine as his is only 10" travel shocks though. Remember factory shocks are around 8" of travel.

10" will be fine if you play with the caster or have aftermarket control arms like his. You'll never get it that smooth without radius arms or aliens tho.

I thought my front pinion has had a seep but think I just realized that when you spill a little oil on an oil change, it'll follow its way all the way down and drip right on the pinion. Haha pretty sure I've spilled some in the past.

Yup dealership told me mine was leaking and I asked if they cleaned up their mess from my free oil change. They said yes they had. I said okay so do it I have a lifetime warranty. They called me back and said it was a mistake the guy dribbled oil on it when he did the oil change. I said yup I thought so and went down to pick it up. F-ing crooks I swear!

Finally took the time to figure out what the hell was rattling on my exhaust. The joint where the extension pipe meets the Y pipe was loose and everything from there back was slipping forward and backward and twisting. $4 clamp and its all good again. I plan to replace the Y pipe and install a new muffler but I'm too busy right now to deal with it. My welder is in storage and I'd have to take it to a shop.

I actually live far enough away that I don't get the sea spray all the time. I do go to the beach and fish but I keep it clean from saltwater. The exhaust is the only thing that looks rough. Also, the worst thing you can do it let something sit and don't use it. The PW is moving every day.

Funny part was he kept wanting to speed up because I was keeping up with him but then he'd be on the brakes from big ruts.

I went down the same road this past weekend after a good rain. I was aired down and stayed in 2wd and locked the rear. Didn't have any troubles and barely spun a tire a couple of times. Logging trucks had it pretty messed up. A 2013ish F150 was coming the other way and as he got closer to the ditch to pass, his ass end started slipping and then he locked in 4wd, both driverside tires are spinning, he's turning away from the ditch and barely keeps it from going down. I stopped thinking I was about to have to pull him out.

I had this bumping going on at slow speed, small bumps, like a bushing was worn out. About convinced myself it was a tie-rod end. Went to stripping it down this morning and finally worked my way around to the freaking drivers side shock top bolt going through the tower was loose. I got about a half turn out of it and torqued the shit out of it. Then went through the entire front end and retorqued everything. All's good now.
