Best bang for the buck so far
Rear track bar bushings (all).

Steering rack bushings and boots.
Frozen drum brake adjuster (rear).

This was a distressed $300 truck that supposedly had bad head gaskets. It turns out the cooling system was leaking.
It was poorly maintained by a smoker who needed nicotine more than a functional vehicle.
All the repairs were normal wear and tear items for this vehicle.
It has been off-roaded by me and has performed well so far. It has the optional LSD.
Could use the 5-speed.
It drives near-new now.
There are no leaks.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
