Hey there dad of six, sweet timing, huh? Congrats by the way and thanks for your service. My dad had 15 after MIT and returning from WW2 in the 101st. Maybe you will be giving him a run for the money.lol
So the blowout ripped your roof? USAA huh? Here they have like a 98 percentile that plan on staying for life. Do you know how they establish total outs and or similar replacement guidelines?
What are you calling " down links"? Your sway bar links? New and torqued to what value?
Take a close look by the shock stabilizer bracket areas and near by grag link area for sing spots of metal that indicate metal on metal contact. The end that is at axle bracket can get tweeked off road. That whole area is susceptible to contact if anything gets even a little out of whack. Make sure the bracket on other end is lined up ok and retighten U bolts if adjusting is needed.
