Hell gotta give you credit. You ripped it off pretty cleanly. Everytime I've fawked one up it's been mangled to all hell.

That's just cause you need more practice breaking stuff to get it right!

When I was looking at the part, there was only about a 1/4 inch of new break. I am wondering how long I've driven it around like that.

I've never ripped one off but I did collapse them. I gotta ask............ what brand of lift that is. It looks a lot like an RC arm dangling there. Either way its an easy fix.

Yea, they are RC control arms and springs, Nth degree rear uppers, OME shocks, Skyjacker front adjustable trackbar and RE adjustable rear trackbar. I have kinda a mix of parts from craigslist and ebay. The whole lift minus the tires and wheels was about 600$ including shocks and new steering stabalizer. I am still having trouble with worn out bushings and incorrect size bolts, but you get what you pay for... right. Just gotta finish working out the kinks.
