The Mojave Road rejuvenated my love for the van. After the trip the van was pulling to the right when I hit the brakes which lead me to believe I had a problem with the drivers side caliper. I pulled it apart and I found that a rock had a party with the piston and destroyed the caliper. I changed it out and everything is back to normal, for about a day.
I ordered the cross over steering kit from UJOR, installed it this past Saturday. THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST UPGRADE I HAVE MADE TO VANDETTA YET. I can't believe what a simple geometry change in the steering can do for the overall ride of the van. I got it aligned yesterday and found myself just driving around looking for the worst streets to test it out on. I can't wait to get this back in the dirt. If you have a UJOR kit on your van I highly recommend the cross over steering kit. I can't find the words to articulate how much better it drives and rides. I took some pictures of the knuckle replacement but they didn't come out right, there was a lot of glare for some reason. I will snap some more pics and upload later on. Here are a couple that kinda came out.
