Well this sucks, my friend and I could only get to the second to last hole on the shackles so I still have terrible cali lean and only gained maybe an inch of lift in the back. At the second hole it was perfect too

You'd hate to drive my truck then haha. That gas needle in that thing isn't a stranger to being below the red line without a gas station in sight haha.

Changed the oil yesterday. Sure does idle smoother with that Mobil 1 5W30 in it.

Didn't like having both 12v sockets wired directly to the battery, so I hooked the right one up to a switched circuit.

I finished replacing the lower ball joints. I did the passenger side last week, but couldn't do the driver's side because the ball joint was rusted to the steering knuckle. I sprayed it with PB Blaster, then replaced it this morning. Next week, I'm going to replace the upper ball joints, then have the truck aligned and ride these old tires for a little while longer before I have the "new" tires mounted.

Well I used the Magyars paint restoration kit plus added a coat of "Ice" synthetic polish between the compound step and the carnauba wax step. Also did a little touch up to some chips I had. Added maxguiars tire shine too. For a 98 and white I'm pretty happy with results. Had the vehicle for a bout 2 years but it literally sat. Now it's my everyday vehicle.
