It all started yesterday with wanting to check the drivers side rear shackle , it didnt look right , turned out it had collapsed and was broken . I figured I could straighten it ,weld on some reinforcement metal , boy was I wrong , an hour and half later the shackle and hanger bracket were off the frame . Taking those parts off i discovered that the bushings in the leaf spring are shot as well . I had already ordered the hanger bracket and shackle , they will be here this morning at 8 am ,I was to late to order the bushings for the leaf spring . I hope i can find the bushings at a local spring shop so I can get the truck back together and on the road this morning.

Bought 4 Rockford Fosgate Prime 6x8's. Installed those and soldered the connections. Cleaned out the K&N drop-in filter.

Easiest $8 and twenty minutes I have ever spent on this truck and the difference in removing vibration and slop is immediately noticeable.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...#ht_1268wt_941

Mine was only showing some light cracking under the weight of the tranny, but the sag was obvious. The mount should sit even with the base, not sag into it. It doesn't have to be broken to be bad. Mine is permanently sagging now that it's off the truck from holding the weight all these years.




Old mount

Put my transmission back in, then tore my intake off again. Damn oil leaks.

Today I waited for 2 hours at the DMV and got my new plates. The other new plates got lost in the mail. I put them on and got that sticker out of my front window that was starting to look torn up after over 2 months.
