shoot me now... I spent a few hours yesterday installing a set of coil spring spacers that dwink gave me. I left the instructions open on my desktop just to notice that I was supposed to put the stock spring isolators back on too. Guess I will wait til tomorrow and pull everything back apart to put the isolators back on. No big deal cause I have air tools... the only issue is that I only have a low profile floor jack for cars and a hi-lift. After doing it yesterday using the hi-lift I have to confirm that they are as dangerous as everyone says.

Yea, they can smash your face. You can swing by and use my floor jack if you need it.

I put them on from start to driving down the road in less than 3 hours. That included multiple calls from the wife and 2 different neighbors stopping by to bs. I just hate doing it things twice. My floor jack only goes up to 18 inches. Most of the ones that I have seen online only go up to either 19-20 inches. Hard to justify the money for a few inches. Well if I was YSB I could justify the money for a few extra inches.

One day I will have a lift. If it is the only thing I accomplish I will have a 2 post lift. Every time I pull out a floor jack I kick myself for not getting a second job to buy one.

My buddy in PA had one, it made everything so much easier. I cannot wait until the boss gets out of the military and we can settle down somewhere so I can build the shop that I want. I could always drive out to the auto hobby shop on base... but by the time I pack up all my tools drive out there and wait for a bay, I could be finished.

I've heard that high schools have cut the auto shop programs due to budget. I wonder if they would allow rental use of the huge shops. When I was at cimarron HS they had 3 lifts. My little bro still goes there and nobody uses them.

Thanks sirk, they had another Denso 150 amp alternator there at the shop so I have a new one now. 100 bucks. Really nice guys. They can do bigger rewinds for around 1 dollar per amp. They would have had to send mine out to do that and could have given me a 200 amp alt for around 200 bucks but it would take a couple days. I still thinks that's pretty darn fast.

Sadly I wish that were true. I think you are staging his death to ramp up his big return!
