Had a great birthday yesterday

My son bought a '99 S-10 slammed to the ground with rubber band tires last weekend. It's a nice truck, but so low you can't hardly drive it, esp in the winter. I found him a set of Z-28 wheel and tires cheap so we took the trip to get them yesterday - my birthday. After we got back we spent the rest of the day working on it. We swapped the front spindles back to stock which raised it 2" and the larger tires raised it another 1". I swapped one side and I showed him how to do it and he did the other side himself. We have to swap the rear lowering blocks out next (The last owner had all the original parts).

It was great birthday because it's the first time in over a year he has shown any interest in anything but computer games.

I'm glad to hear you had a happy birthday, and the reason for it is outstanding. Oh by the way, happy birthday a day late.

Sometimes I wonder why people 'slam' them so far. You can't get a 'normal' jack under them to change a flat. I'll bet the 'spare' was a factory rim and tire.

I am somewhat fortunate though, a slammed vehicle cannot get up the driveway to my shop.
