I had better check mine.........Been a year since I was last under there. I had an incident with the center tie rod bolts loosening up on the steeriods rack. One completly dropped out and the other was loose. Made for some interesting steering manuvers.

Yep... same here. I haven't looked since last year about now and put less than 300 miles on it in that span and when my mechanic had it on the rack a couple weeks ago for inspection, he found one bolt gone and three were loose.

I had the 73 up in the air a few weeks ago checking everything before I went to skyline drive. Found 4 of the 8 bolts loose on the frt mono VBP leaf spring. So I am in the process of drilling holes in the bolts & safety wiring them like I did on the 68 yrs ago. This is a very poor design & dangerous & the manufacture never did any thing about it. I'm surprised they haven't been sued by now.
