Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

I have a collection of front drivelines now. The top one was on the truck when I got it and has a bad slip joint. The middle one is 'ol bendy. The bottom one is brand new from High Angle Driveline in Paradise, CA.

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

Still a long checklist:

Check spark plugs, tune-up
Fix brake lights staying on - pedal not returning all the way!
Improve braking?
Install front driveline
Replace rear driveline u-joints
Install 1" zero rate blocks in rear axle
Fix leaking thermostat housing
Service or rebuild transmission (leaking)
Service transfer case (swap with other one? twin stick?)
Install radio (speakers?)
Replace windshield washer hoses / test washer pump
Install cowl debris screen
Replace valve cover gaskets
Install door panels
Replace headlights and adjust
Repair weld lumber rack

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

I took the new u-joints out of the bent front driveline today. I think they are the same as the rear driveline, so I can still use them.

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

This morning I made some big jack stand blocks that will make it safer to work under the truck.

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

I installed a Kenwood Digital Media Receiver today. I still need to replace the speakers, but I have a working stereo and I can take hands free bluetooth phone calls. I put the microphone in the ash tray so it is hidden.

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

New door speakers are installed. Some door panels would probably help the sound.

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

Thanks, I need some for the holes in my doors. The easiest way to fill the holes without welding.

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

I installed 1" zero rate blocks from Offroad Design to get the rake that I want. It was too level for my taste. They sent me the wrong u-bolts (9/16" instead of 5/8"), but these will work until I can get the right ones. I'm going out for a test drive now and I'll try to get a good side view photo.

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

Looking forward to side pics. Mine sits low in the rear. I may need to do this too.

Side view.

I like it. It doesn't look like the back is jacked up or sagging down.

Looks good and easier than adding a leaf.

Actually, these ORD blocks are a zero rate leaf that bolts to the spring pack. Not too much extra work though.

Nice improvement. It's amazing what 1 inch will do.

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

Good to know. Think about adding new Teflon anti-friction liners to replace the oem examples at the top and bottom of the spring packs when you add the correct U-bolts. Seems minor but I did perceive a quieter ride as if they do provide some dampening.

Now that I have a radio, all kinds of rattles and noises went away. Lol.

Re: '72 Cheyenne K10

I got a set of tire chains for playing in the snow. The test fit was long so I removed a cross chain.
