Track bar finally fixed!!

Got the track bar finally fixed properly. Took a little work but beefy as hell now. New teflon hiems are bling too. I can actually keep the truck in my lane now!

Thanks! I put some very big trusses on the front and rear. (pic) The housings on the 9's are really thier only weakness, and I like to jump it occasionally so I went overkill. The 60 outers were put on by a good friend of mine named Cliff. He owns First Fabrication. The best part about it is everything is stock out there so I can replace anything at NAPA, even with the Rover bolt pattern.

Everything is beefy except for the drop arm ball joint, the boot has seen better days. Is that joint in good shape?

I think that maybe the size of everything is throwing things off for you. That pitman arm is not a drop arm. It is the pitman from a F350. The ball joint is huge, and in good shape. The rods are 1 3/8, 3/8 wall. Maybe that makes the upper tie rod look small in comparison at 1 1/4in. That ball joint is roughly 300% stronger than the a stock rover, (being very conservative).
