    That would be awesome, but not realistic for another couple of years. After the spindles its time to save for a locker and re gear.

    Got the spindles done this weekend. Was pretty easy to do, took maybe about 5 hours of install, hardest part was cutting the lca and test fitting a couple of times. The ride is a lot better and actually absorbs bumps now instead of just going over them. Had to get new wheels to with less backspacing and am really happy that I no longer have to use spacers up front, only in the back now to match.

    Comparison pic of the before and after of lca angles with and without the tt and spindles.

    Ended up with the front fender arch being at 41 with the torsion bolts being backed out almost completely, before I was at 38inches.

    Finally got some updates, haven't been active on here really at all anymore. But I still visit often for issues I have. Recently had to change out the harmonic balancer. Was really skeptical about doing it at first but after a lot of reading I finally bougot the parts and needed tools for the job. It was a succes, got rid of the stealing I was hearing. And upon removal noticed a big crack on it. Also had to recently re-do the thermostat for the same cracked housing issue.
    Planned ahead are changing the Trans fluid and filter and Trans mount. As well doing the body mount bushing's in the next week or two.
    Got some new wheels and tires. Went with 32/11.5/15 Koss. I've had them for about 2 months and 3k miles and am really liking them. Also installed a new rear led light to the bumper and moved my front led bar behind the grill. Im also not running a front sway Bay anymore after the mounts got ripped out of the frame after a few back roads, no negative difference so far
