Re: Thrashed front end bits
X2, I just ordered up dynatracs free spin hub kit converted to 8X6.5 and their ball joints, coming in next week, they are a bit more money but look bomber, good to hear the positive review. So as it is, I've got 117K on what I believe to be the original ball joints, I've never swapped them and I don't think the previous owner did either, got the van at around 55K. if you don't want to splurge the extra, go with Dana spicer ball joints. The other would be to get some new track bars, do you have a quigley conversion? Derek at Colorado Camper Van has some very stout, adjustable, rebuildable replacements and yes, good steering stabilizers and shocks, like bilsteins or Agile off road's fox conversion kit make a huge difference. check your bushings too.
