So I got my inner and outer drivers side tie rods done. Also found out I need a passenger side wheel bearing and hub... :-( I also got a chance to clean up my bottle caps! I snapped a pic


Now all I need is the hub cause I got the bearing in today then I'll mount the tires, lower the suspension and get here aligned next week hopefully!
