now I don't feel so bad.. i had a clunk for 3 days before I decided to look and see my lower shock bolt was missing. FYI - you know those large 5/8'ths and 7/8'ths multi-hole clevis pins? they are awesome temp bolt replacements. just sayin.

Swapped the fuel filter today and bolted the control arm back on. Even managed to fix the broken shock that was making annoying clunking sounds.

Next up...silicon...
