dayyyyyum man.....where and how do you find the time.

I'm a teacher, so we're transitioning into summer vacation.  I proctored my last exam, submitted all grades, and attended my final post planning meeting.  All that's left is graduation rehearsal Friday, and graduation on Saturday.  I'm off until pre-planning begins Aug 8.

Well, geesh, we should get together on a ride sometime.

If and when I ever get a time off.

Do you ever get involve with any of the local rides?

I know we've talked about this before.

Upper ball joint was a virtual Hell to get out. Air hammer wouldnít push the rivets through. It took heat, a sledge and a wedge. Yay old trucks.

Now take that truck and soak it in brine for a few years and thatís what working on a vehicle in Quebec is like if itís older than five years old

Very nice truck man

Hahaha.  I don't miss that one bit from years of living and growing up north of Detroit.

Same here in continental Europe. We did get some US-muscle over the years, but most of it has just disintegrated.

Well, I got the stance I want but itís maybe an inch too low. The lower control arms bounce enough to hit the ground now and then. I think itís a combo of too short and too soft springs.  I ordered a set of Eibach 2Ē drop progressive springs, which will hopefully solve that problem. Iím also considering going to a 16Ē front rim.
