i put the c/o in the top mount and then put in the bottom let it settle a bit and then put a couple tacks along the side of the upper mount and then pulled the c/o out and drilled and bolted...sound like the right process? And can somebody put up a picture of what its supposed to look like from above like upper ball joint view of the cv and how close it is to the c.o

wheel bearing...cv i think..

jack up the front left see if you can rock the tire back and forth..

see if your cv is loose or something if not ripped

make sure your caliper is on there tight..

get an alignment yet? If not do it and have your ball joints checked as well as your tierods. One of my tierods was done and my lower BJs were going.

Sounds like balljoint and now that you have the lift on, the already bad balljoint has so much more stress on it. When I did my RCD I replaced upper and lower bjs just because I didnt feel like taking it apart again for a long time.
