Whats going on Florida? Just moved down here to FL from Colorado. Seeing how many of you are around the Orlando area. Also, wondering if you know any reputable shops/or have a good selection of tools? I was only able to do one of the ball joints before I had to drive out here.

Gotcha, yeah I used to do that until my selection of tools went to slim to none and garage space 'might' fit a prius. I'm really looking to see if someone may let me finish out the ball joints with beer/cash going their way possibly.

you get your ball joint fixed yet
Not yet. I just don't have the tools and don't want to pay labor rate. So, waiting until I can afford some new tools. Or if someone would be willing to help out. The other 3 aren't terrible, I'd just like to get the new ones in. Instead of them sitting in a box haha. Trucks driveable

I got a air compressor and jack stands to
Alright, I really appreciate that. I'm no expert at doing them, I've never done the lowers only the uppers. So the lowers will be a learning experience for myself. I just follow a how-to I found on here. Whats your schedule look like the next few weeks?

I'm from PA, back there from time to time. Have an address in Florida, and have been in NOLA, Texas, Florida, South Carolina, and back to Texas in the last year and a little.

I'll be coming through there later this week.
