    What the heck is wrong with my truck?

    I may be wrong but it looks to me that the centerline of the radius arm stud is high in the bracket. It could just be the angle and or perception but i would remove the nut and heat shield from the radius arm to see the bushing better.

    Anyone got a mortgage modification / forberance with Chase?

    Need Help!!! Another Body Swap set of questions...

    Chances are that you will need to use the explorer title since it has the vin number. the front clip would probably swap. Provided the trans are the same it should be a straight forward swap,lots of work but straight and simple. But If the ex is in such good shape why not just buy and repair it...
