p.s. How are 4.10s and 35s with the NV3350? I've got 5.13s on the Rubi and 4LO is almost useless to me with the 4:1 t case and locked.
I actually like the gearing and I do a lot of highway driving to and from the trails so it definately helps with MPGs. I also have a 241or I just swapped in so I have plenty of usable low range.

Got more parts in the mail today, the cheapest set of sealed beam conversion headlights I could find (amazon 23 bucks) and new struts for that 300lb hatch (amazon 17 bucks)

Those struts should work great . I think I paid all of 14 bucks for a pair that did a real nice job .

Already got em in and they are amazing, should help keep a little pressure on that hatch so it might make it ever so slightly quieter

looool i feel this pain! i need to get me a set. nice to know they're that cheap.

after i got my front end all buttoned back up and aligned (3/8" toe in) it's... at the same time better.. and worse.... i don't know if the worse is because something that needs fixing is wearing out, or if i did something wrong... altho i'm starting to suspect i also have a bearing issue (low growl from front end corners that i *thought* was engine noise, but stops the instant i cease rolling).

altho it did get a LOT better, i still have some pretty decent vibration, but pretty sure most of it is just tires badly in need of balance/rotation... but i'm also getting some faint wander now? along with a very unnerving side-to-side body roll/steering twitch when i hit bumps at highway speed. i never feel like i'm losing control, and it's NOT death wobble... but it is unpleasant, and undesired, and probably an indication of something wrong.

I'd drop that down to 1/8". 3/8" is way too much.

Previous owner tried to bypass the blower motor switch by jumping 2 wires cause he seen a video on youtube that said it would help give hotter heat or something. Instead of bypassing or just taking the vacuum line off the heater core valve under the hood.
