      Hey everyone finally got my licence and Explorer so i thought id finally join(been around here a few times)! Spent all day getting it on the road only to get a rejection sticker.. Driver Side upper ball joint is gone. Exhaust leak, And the E brake is gone. :mad: Other then everything it still runs! In the mechanics own words "You can drive it until that ball joint goes... Then you most likely wont drive it again" How much do you think the repair for the ball joints gonna cost?

      Believe me i was thinking about it. I figure I'll give my mechanic the chance to make is pass inspection and then the machine is mine for the modifying! Do you have any good suggestions for modds?(I have been browsing around)
