Today I was looking under my truck and noticed one of my end links was gone. Wtf wouldn't I have noticed when it came off?
I did notice that it wasn't driving very good on the freeway. I can't believe it's gone not broken hanging there just gone. Smh

Happens more often than you’d think.

Be happy it's not in your tire! They can be a pain to install and they break quite often.

proper method is to lift both front wheels off the ground, then you can loosely install one side and then do the opposing side, tighten both sides and lower the vehicle down
too many people attempt to do it with the wheels on the ground, the way these trucks are designed with wheels on the ground the front is under tension and the rear is not
so:
front wheels up
rear wheels down

And if you're AWD, make sure to use wheel chocks on the rear wheels
