Had my superglued front a arm out for a good round to finish breaking in the 454... lasted about a tank and a half and 3-4 tumbles lol.

Lost the dogbone out of the front left due to the popped out lower arm... ugh...

On a side note, found a seriously good deal on ebay, $21 shipped for 4 complete suspension setups: upper/lower arms, knuckles, carriers, hinge pins, braces, and the hub/knuckle/arm screws/pins.
He also combined shipping, so for $6 more I got two shock towers and two brand new body posts (since I ran my truck without a body on pavement and flipped/grinded away my new posts... doh!)

$27 shipped for full suspension setup, body mounts, etc... asking him right now if he has some cheap dog bones too lol.

Also just bought new nylon clutch, 30wt oil x 2, flywheel wrench, starting pin to get my F4.6 running as a backup motor, spare wheel nuts, spare exhaust gaskets, and a set of HD dogbones (lost one, need to have a spare too)
