Looks like ill be getting hammered Easter weekend. And I might work on my truck too ;)

But before that happens, can anyone confirm if this is the crossmember part #22833303 in question? Just in case something goes horribly wrong.

That looks about as close as mine. It doesn't knock over washboard bumps?

It does not. I took it though some rough stuff when I first did it. Wonder if it's an issue with your lower ball joints. How come you replaced them on a newer truck already?

I wanted to avoid a future problem by installing something more robust which had the ability to be greased.

One more question. The dealer had installed the balljoints incorrectly on the bottom first time around. I had them correct it to the top, but they didn't re-align it. Would that change require a realignment?

What did you do about a skid plate? I haven't had a chance to bang out the crossmember yet but I did use washers to space the GM skid plates I installed. Still knocking....
