Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Got my Mcgaughy's 4.5/5 kit installed and all new ball joints. Rear tires are rubbing a little (20x10) but other than that it rides so much better than before with all new suspension components!

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Got the Booster /Master combo I bought from Frank's Pickups installed on the truck. Works great.

It looks like your truck didn't have a sway bar before. You will notice an immediate difference in the feel and handling of your truck. The front sway bar install is one of the best bang for the buck upgrades you can do to one of these trucks.

Yes for sure "Already Gone"! It was so weird to take the on ramps in Edmonton. So use to anticipating the roll. I love how it feels. Have a 1" front sway bar that I will be installing in the other truck.

I don't know if you purchased the front sway bar new but there is cheaper alternative that works really well. Any 1973/1987 C30 or GMC 3500 truck has the 1 1/4 inch front sway bar. Some of the heavier GVW C20 and GMC 2500, like the camper or trailering special ones have the 1 1/4 front bar too. Get one from a wreck in a salvage yard, usually 40/60.00 and buy a new set of bushings for it and use it.

Just curious because I have a sway bar to put on; Did you put the sway bar on at ride height? How/Where did you jack it up at?

Re: What did you do to your truck today? Chapter II

Cleaned and oiled the wood bed on dads longhorn. I Used motor oil in keeping with what dad did (that worked) for 38 years. Prevents rust on the metal slats too, but I do wipe off all but a thin coating. The pic is right after I put on the oil and it hasn't soaked in yet. It will help the wood survive another sunny hot summer. I just can't put the family heirloom tapestries in the back now.
