ive off and on watched your build thread and when i first opened it i was really skeptical as to whether this truck would end up being something i would like (not that it matters, build it for you) but you have definitely made one hell of a truck and im severely jealous.

picked up a Camburg 5.5 kit from a DR member Friday evening. It got installed first thing Saturday morning.

after a good cleaning and inspection, i got a great deal. very little, if any, dirt miles.






aligned it myself to at least get it on the road. going from lift spindles to camburg ones leaves you with alot of toe-in. the camber needs to be set but its close enough to drive for a day or so till i can get it aligned for real.


----------

Wes at Poly Performance was kind enough to lend his driveway and some of his tools for the installation. We spent the day working in the rain but got tons done on my truck as well as his fast and furious commuter.

some pics of the trucks at the nights end.

another quick bump..

got some testing in for the front end in Pismo with a group of friends. she handled it great and i cant wait to get the 2.0s on up front. drew up some designs for the brackets a few days ago. just need to go cut em out.











got the dust light mounted and wired.







replaced the lower ball joints yesterday because the ones pressed into the partsgeek.com replacement arms, dont have ribbing to keep them pressed into the arm. they became super loose and sketch to drive on. replaced them with ones fitted with zerks.
