did some more work today.

Did front and rear shocks. Also installed my front wheels, had to use wheel spacers/adapters to get it to clear (luckily i still had a set). Need to pick up some better lugnuts, but thats not big hurry.

Also installed a cheapo aftermarket radio, no pics

I fixed the exhaust that was rotted off at the flange after the cat. Cat and muffler were in good shape, so i cheaped out and did a repair kit on the flange and a turn down after the stock muffler, not bad for 20 bucks
