Thumbs down Well.... That sucked

Today started out awesome... I woke up with the full intentions of putting in my 4 inch aal blockes in the rear!!! I was so excited so Iwent out to my truck..jacked it up by the frame and du. Dah dah dah!!!! broken shackles..... sad but still convinced I could do both in a day I put it down on jack stands.... Two minutes later while wrenching on the beast the drivers side stand says... Fu#k this and takes a break... With this the passenger side stand slides and proceeds to fall... As does my truck...right on the concrete... No damage (thank god) but I picked her back up and pur the tire on.... Im done for today

Ya these long island winters with snow and summer with the beach (my fault) kill them, but hey the truck is 11-12 years old lol... But I did attempt to torch them out but the chisel with the cutting bit popped them right out !!!!
