Gravel...

Well I have capped my week off in one of the worst ways, on my way home I decided to take a back road and run the gears a little well after taking a gradual right turn I down shifted to third and when I let out the clutch to get on her was the same exact moment I rounded the end of the curve an simultaneously hit a gravel patch...did not anticipate the gravel and well she ended up facing the opposite direction in the ditch...

Might wanna check your inner and outter tie rods. Maybe give the hub a look-over and balljoints. I would just do it as a "peace-of-mind" check. Also check your idler and pittman arms.

Check your rear axels and driveshaft. It doesn't take much to throw a driveshaft off balance.
