o. and i used almost a whole can of it. they came off eventually. i talked to the PO today and apparently when he took off the 3 in lift he had on, he didnt bother torquing it to specs. so he over torqued it and that was the cause of my problems

well i have some bad news...my springs have sagged too much and i cannot fit the tires i already bought for the lift. so right now im thinking about leaving the almost bald tires on until i can get enough money for a lift. i am think the rough country 4", because of the all 8 adj control arms. i have also look at the iro 3" and it didnt really look like that complete of a kit. and ideas. i especially want to hear from people who are running that rc 4"

well lift is on and the tires. i need to get new springs because the old ones have sagged too much. any suggestions? maybe just buy a lift and then sell the excess parts?
front being worked on:


Front done:


back being worked on:


in the process of putting on the lift, a socket fell in the chassis so i had to back it up a hill so i can get a magnet in there and get it out.


in the last picture you can see that i have mounted my bumper. but i am still welding up the sides and such on it.

also changed all of the fluids and vacuumed the inside.
still does work for being at 209xxx miles

nice. for coils why not just go to a local junkyard and get some V8 coils for now?

well I guess check ebay, craigslist, classifieds on here, or worst case order some new ones from qtec. that gives you a good reason to just get a nice liftkit then

lol i was looking at that same thing last night. considering it's 4", that price isnt bad at all. Plus the 2" bb would make it 6" if you wanted. Id say if you got the cash to do it, go for it!
