well this happened to me this weekend on a trail thank god it didnt happen on road. I have FT and it happened on my only 1 of 8 control arms that has had issues with the jam nut loosening up. I had to get it welded to be able to make it home safely and of course I had to hit the trails after to test it

I think thats BS they made u pay for shipping. be interesting to see what full craption does, I know they'll give me some crap about it thats for sure.
