    Got insurance on it today and fixed the vibration (bad u-joint) and new spark plug wires, so now it is running pretty good needs a new muffler and some interior pieces replaced but I am going to start daily driving it since the kid totalled his camaro and is driving our van now.

    The kid is fine, But he is having dealing with the insurance company.
    I had intended not to put any money in the front end because I am going to put a EB44 there, but the front rotors had some warpage in them so I put some cheap rotors and wheel bearings in from Oreilly's and I installed a new thermostat now the rig gets up to temp instead of luke warm.

    You just can't win. The BII gets too hot and the Ex won't heat up. Where's the middle ground?

    Picked up a 4.10 disc brake 8.8 rear today so don't have to mess with gears now.
    Now I am looking for linear rate 4-6" lift early bronco coil springs and early bronco trac-bar.

    Coils are yours if you want them, they serve no purpose for me, should also have some factory radius arms soon. Let me know if your interested.

    :banghead: I just took two end caps to the scrap yard last weekend, I do have the lower buckets and retainers though. Sounds like we need to set up a naches run in mid to late August so I can get some parts to you:party:

    Thanks, where did you find the duff arm?
    I started swapping out my rear this last weekend and remembered how much I dislike working on nonlifted rigs.
