Not sure what is wrong now.

I thought I had a left pull from the bad strut bearings. But I did replaced those and the problem went away for a while.

Today I made a left turn and the car pulled left hard. I swapped the two front tires and it still pulls hard left. It also seems like my steering wheel is cocked a bit to the right.

Not sure what it'* going to take to fix it this time.

Yesterday, I put a timing tab on my truck. Welded in a brace on the middle of the radiator support in it too. I also put high temp clear coat on my Stealth Ram. I put 5 decals on the truck too, I think it gain me 20 hp.

seems like it needs tie rod ends, probably ball joints and an alignment.

if you can see the tie rod ends through the wheels have someone rock the wheel and look for play, ball joints arent that easy you have to jack up the car and use a bar

Heading to the garage, last time I opened the garage door was in August. Forgot to set mouse traps, hope no mouse nests in any of the vehicles.

The beloved Bonny started up this morning, she had been sitting outside since August. What a great car. Thought it might need a jump, but only turned over a bit slow.

Eltatertoto: do you have a relay harness for your HIDs? I used to pick up a lot of interference on the am radio until I got a harness.

I have had this car a week now and each day it seems to amaze me. Today I picked up my nephew from school and on the way home I hit the cruise control and the silly thing worked!!!

Until I hit a pretty good bump lol
