Getting that spring in there while on the ground was not easy...I think I pooped my pants a little

Got the front brake lines installed

Waiting to get it on the rack before doing the other springs, because I value the structural integrity of my sphincter

Oh my god...my hood is propped open without wasting money on hydraulic struts

This. Lol

Did it solve the lean?

Edit: Wow I'm good at reading. Looks good nonetheless.

It solved it, alright
End of the month, I'm pretty busy at work...hopefully I'll find the time to get the others, the rear brake lines, and the spring retainers installed in the rear by mid next week. Getting the pry bar under those springs will be a LOT easier up on the rack

I'm sending the heads off to the machine shop to have them checked for warping/cracks, and I'm going to have them ported and polished at the same time...

do I need to port/polish the intake, too?

Is that a new replacement Mopar exhaust manifold? As far as the intake you should at least have it gasket matched at the same time you do the head work.

It's a crown replacement. I have read tooth about people spending money on headers, cheap and expensive alike, only to have them crack in six months, all the while frying spark plug wires. No thanks

The axhaust manifold should arrive on Tuesday, and I'm dropping the intake and heads off to the machine shop on Monday

Picked up the heads and intake today...no port work done. Guy said there really wasn't much he could do to sexy them up after peeking inside. He thinks they're pretty well constructed, apparently.

Hopefully it will get put back together on Monday.

Were the heads warped?

Did they resurface the heads?
