    To add, my truck came lowered with ground force shocks and springs I've always noticed my front driver side tire has always leaned in a bit and had the front end tie rods, ball joints replaced and it still leaned. Finally had some one tell me I needed camber kits, turns out I DO have them, over time hitting bumps or something I guess it bent something so I had a another shop I guess straighten something out and re align for the 34th time and now I'm all good! Won't be running threw front tires every six months.

    I have one of those other clunks, I know it has to deal with the steering. Dont really know and havent taken the time to track it either. Im sure its got to be the pitman or idler arms. Found both for $50 shipped but idk if the 2.48" pattern is right, or if that is even the issue.

    Its good to know all these little ins and outs, it is also nice to share hehe. So I want to say thanks again. Makes fixing things go a little easier.

    Thanks again Allen. I'm almost positive it's related to the steering. It's really pronounced on flat ground while turning left and seems to be coming from the drivers side. I try to not turn the wheels al the way to avoid it but it al depends on the situation. Could be the steering stops too though. If it works, it's worth a shot. I thought it was something I was going to have to live with due to lowering it.

    True story Sean! haha, So off topic, after getting my cambers repaired I was getting some new tires for it and low and behold my wheel lock is missing. I'm assuming it was from that last time I had the tie rods etc replaced. The tire shop cant take it off either without breaking them and I don't want to go that route either. How can I get ahold of that wheel lock ??? I have the stock 20 Harley Wheels on them. Anyone?

    I like the McGard locks that were used by Ford on the Lightning.

    But to update on wheel lock key, I went ahead and did what Allen suggested. Turns out many of the local auto parts stores carry those mcgard wheel locks with the key. But on my way to pick up a set I checked my console one last time and found the damn thing. The four locks and the key were going to run me about $40 not to bad I guess.
