maddog,

I love it... I'm in the same boat as you. I am fixing and driving. I have been buying parts as money permits. FYI. I just did my rear springs and shocks this past weekend. It was no easy task. I soaked all the bolts three days prior with fresh squirts of pen oil each day. It still was a bear to get off the bolts. I had to cut the u bolts with a cutter that fit on the end of an electric drill. I forgot to ease the tension on the bolts before hand and nearly took myself out with a .22 caliber sized chunk of bolt, as it exploded. It took two days to complete the job. I got the leafs from McVeigh's Truck Springs. His info is on the forum. Great price and great springs. I took measurements before and after and ended up with 2 1/4" lift from the new springs and shocks.

I can't wait to see your bird when complete.

well eagle eyes decided to show me who was boss today by blowing a hole in one of the transmission cooler lines on the way to the gas station. i didn't find out till i came out of the station after paying for gas and found a growing puddle under her and a trail behind her. i managed to get her home and get it fixed and it doesn't seem like any damage has been done to the transmission though. here are a couple pics of the damaged section of hose.
