Re: Important

Dumb question. I have a project coming up that uses a 2wd d30 beam but needs the knuckles swapped side to side so the steer arms are in back. Can this be done? Not worried about caster but a bit about camber

Re: Important

camber should be a function of the inner c.

I believe that the balljoints are in the same plane in the knuckle.

And this is how I sit at work. I don't really have a desk, just a table and barstool.

That looks similar to Si Robertson's sweet tea jug.

10 people between a Buick and a danger ranger? I'm assuming some were in the bed of the truck...

Edit: Or is that a Pontiac? Hard to tell when there's a Ranger trying to mate with it...

Re: Important

Looks like a Buick Century to me with the tail lights (or maybe Lesabra). Five people in the truck (three up front in bench and two in jump seats in the back or two up front or three in bench in back if it has it) and five in the Buick (or other car). Not impossible, but not comfortable with that many.

Buick LeSabre and Ranger. Some of them were in another truck in front of the LeSabre that didn't crash. Only 3 were bad enough to be transported, but everyone in all 3 vehicles were high schoolers.

Found this on Facebook. If this person gets $7,000 for their truck i'm sure you can get your asking price for your truck SeanR.

Mine is getting de-rusted.
Fixing the cab corners and around the rear wheels.
I pumped all of the "dirty" fuel into the cat this morning, and put five gallons of ruby red in it.

WI peps, a buddy wants me to get some spotted cow this weekend.

Any clues on a store to accomplish this near Crandon, taking MI to UP Friday and route 2 over. Would like to buy warm as I don't want to keep it cold all weekend.

Can u buy beer on Sunday in WI? iL? MI?

Re: Important

You can buy beer til 9pm on sundays. Almost every grocery store has spotted cow by me. I believe it's the same up there. If my memory is correct Michigan doesn't sell on Sundays.
