spent the day wrenching on something a bit different.

My buddy's 67 Sweptline. D200, camper special.

He wanted to lower it, so we started out by taking off the overload springs and removing the 2 smallest leafs from the spring packs. There were three springs that werent clamed into the packs, so we removed 2 of those. Dropped the back about 1.5" at the bumper.




Came out to sit pretty much 100% level now, which is better, front needs the same trearment though, the gap in the wheel wells up there is huge



I feel bad, being a camper special its somewhat rare...and its a D200 so its a freakin 3/4 ton with overload springs, and all he wants to do is get it lower and put 5 lugs on it. Dibs on the rear axle if he does!

What's it previously white? With a 318? I had one just like it a few years back.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

He jumped and landed safely. It appears as though he did break the speed of sound but did not have the longest free-fall. He has highest balloon flight and highest skydive.

I just spent the last hour tearing apart my garage looking for the one cap that I still have. I have no freaking clue where I put that damn thing. When it turns up, I will get it to you.
