    seems there's these things called shackles that support the body of the truck on the leaf springs and this one is rotting pretty bad right behind the drivers side rear tire.

    the one on the passenger side completely broke off and when the spring hit the body of the truck it literally felt like a kick in the ass.

    I also changed my ball joints and upper control arms this past weekend. Nice solid front end now. I debated doing the tie rod ends while I was down there but they seemed fine so fuck it.

    The salt they put on the roads, is that the reason for all that rust?

    I was in Buffalo NY and there wasnt a car over 8 years old that did not have running rust on it.

    I seen quarter panels almost completely rusted out on some rigs.
