Well I got my car sodl , bought a 92 corsica with 43k miles on it, with all the goodies. wheeled saturday, and today I washed the jeep and stripped it down ready for the new cage. And washed the corsica. I dont think it's been washed in over a year.
pulled my front axles out and got them cleaned up. Will be bringen them up to Bobby L. this week (early) to look at them, they be popping when I turn hard right and the pretty much cannot turn them by hand when out of rig and sittin in the vice . Had to heli coil a stud on a knuckle when I stripped the threads while tighening down the arp studs. Daam I hated cleaning all the grease outa the birfs:looser: . stan

Made punch to remove factory toyota ruber bushings on the ol' lathe then realized that spring was wrong diameter for new bushings Back to the lathe to make bushing spacer thingies. Got it all togeather and threw the ol' yoda on the trailer and went to rieter for a few hours with some friends and was having a great time, drove up poop chute then back down and up sack-up and back door trail then to isabel to go to trail of doom and on the way I broke............ ANOTHER LEAF SPRING!!! this time a front going up the rock shortcut on the switch back. All in a days work.........Anybody know of a good deal on coilovers?
