Slow but willing learner
Thanks guys. I did instal the seat and road about an hour today. Much better. Calling this a success story!
Just a quick note on this without a lot of drama but I have a chassis guy in NC that's helping me out a bit. The plan is to have the Monza in the garage this coming weekend and drop some marks on the floor to figure what the issues are. I am suspecting right now that I screwed up the last time using the front end crossmember as a center point to triangulate the car. He has already shown me a better way to square up the chassis and I'm thinking my previous work may have moved the rear in the wrong direction. We'll know something by next weekend and I'll post it here.Chasracer, Have you looked into what made your car pull so violently to the right when you hit the wall? I am curious as to what you find...
I have ordered 2 of these for a 95 and a 94 gmt400 so far. I will probally order a 3rd before messing with another hit and miss stock circuit board.I had a problem with the tail light circuit board in my 98 GMC pickup again. This will be the 3rd circuit board on the left side. I took one of the cheap Chinese made replacements apart to see what was in it. The answer is... Not much. Some cheap bent clips and a fiberglass circuit board with a very thin layer of metal traces. I'm planning on soldering in some wires to make the circuits. I'm tired of having to replace these things. They typically fail immediately before I have to get it inspected. I'll finish this up once I get some thinner wire. More to follow. View attachment 618740

Yep, a circuit board. A very, very cheap circuit board. I'm not sure that conventional sockets would fit between the light housing and the body. Some of the flat 90 degree sockets might. I'm gonna give the internal wiring mod a shot before I do anything else. Changing over to conventional sockets would mean cutting the wiring in the truck itself unless I could find the socket part somewhere.WTF is that? Circuit board?
Should I be making aftermarket plates to sell that hold three standard sockets?
Thanks for the link. Those lights look pretty good, but I'm gonna take a swing at fixing what I have first.I have ordered 2 of these for a 95 and a 94 gmt400 so far. I will probally order a 3rd before messing with another hit and miss stock circuit board.
Tail lights are a necessity to anyone wanting to add that custom look to their car or truck. 2000 Chevy Tahoe Tail Light Circuit Board for V8 5.7L Models. 95-99 Chevy Tahoe. Brings a different appearance to veichle that great for show use or to replace old and worn tail ligiht.www.ebay.com
Not only are these things cheap. That's a set of taillights that pop right in for twice what those cheap replacement boards cost. These ones come with a little "black box" which means you can use your exiting flasher and just plug these in. Just clean off a area for the box to mount to peel off the double sided tape and your good. I think I mounted it to the inside of the light actualy and t fit without a issue. But worst case you slap it against the inside of the bedside.
The backup light needs to be a bulb in most states if it came with a bulb(I dont get it either). The backup light lens on these is a big improvement over a factory light also even with the same bulb. You will notice the difference.
Don't mess with a board, order these lights, pop them into the factory holes, and never think about it again. There are other similar ones. But these ones are the ones you want because of that black box.
