update
the drivers side header should be here today.
after installing the one i realized that the doors wouldnt open with the extensions installed.
so i unbolted the body mounts and jacked the cab up 2 inches.

it didnt really change the look any.
luckily i have slack in my brake lines and wiring.
the steering column slid on the heim joint so that wasnt an issue either.
i dont want to jinx myself but
it looks like it just might work.

with the under the truck exhaust i hated the drone noise.
i installed those 26" headers with the built in mufflers this morning.
it is a bit louder but not bad.
best though.
that drone is gone and i am not getting gassed from that leaky exhaust

yesterday at a stop light.
there was a college kid with one of those lil cars with the fart-pipes
he was revving it up and making that funny noise those things make.
when the light turned green i stomped on it for a second.
yeah rice burners are fun.
but they dont make a noise like a v8.....

I had one get on side my corvette one day we was doing about 75 mph and he was on side of me playing and I said OK... let's play !!!! Well he must have had a little something under the hood,, Blew my door's off... I couldn't even come close to catching him..

So don't let them little cars fool you..

kingpin update
i got me some oversized pins and i am glad i did.
the previous pins and bushings were installed 3000 miles ago with the bushings upside down.
thus no lubrication.
the spindles and axle holes were wallered out in an egg shape.
i had to machine down the parts to make everything square and then use all the shims provided with the new pins just to do one side!
luckily we were able to scare up more shims and thus were able to finish the job.
right now my steering is VERY stiff.
so i am forced to go cruising around the neighborhood making lots and lots of turns breaking it all in before our vacation cruise.
boohoo poor lil ole me.
forced to drive my toy even more than usual.

ya know?
the steering didnt seem sloppy to me at all.
it didnt wander on a crowned road or anything like that.
i didnt get speed wobble either.
but when i jacked the tires off the ground and got a 6 and 12 o-clock hold of it
there was an unacceptable amount of movement
maybe a half inch or a little more.
my spindles are worn as well but with the new pins installed i got the movement down to a 8th of an inch.

i am going to put a piano hinge in the front and a latch at the rear so that it can only be opened after unlocking and opening the tailgate
