Never mind it turns out I bought the 400. It was $129 maybe worth waiting.

Right? I've been checking the hubs out about every 3k when I rotate because of the mileage (164k) on them and I've never noticed any slop. With the noise I haven't noticed anything other than tires really. The other weekend I was on the interstate next to a wall for about 20 miles listening for noise and didn't hear anything. Even worse, the shop that does my alignments works primarily on high end and/or heavily modified cars/trucks and they haven't spotted anything loose or worn out either. I should add that this wasn't a problem before I added the SPC's and set the caster to the B slot.

I think you might be on to something with the Titan swap haha.

So tie rods seem ok, rack mounts are ok, uca mounts are ok, I took a video yesterday of the passenger side lca mounts while turning the steering back and forth and didn't see any abnormal flexing happening. I'll do the drivers side next but if those turn out ok then whats left, hubs?

Edit: been thinking of tire wear... howís your camber? High caster from ďBĒ SPC settings and extra + camber? You did say it felt good for a bit then sh!t started hitting the fan again? Catch a pothole that made you cringe more than normal? Wondering if itís just out of alignment again. Iím trying to NOT overthink it like usual
