    That's a good Joe to help out, never resist good help, its hard to fine, especially since you have hi Dad's shop, thats way cool.... Forgot your using the Pods for most of the travel stuff. Tread for the step, nice addition, good idea...Check out the latest album I added and for the last month you will know where I've been. Look in th Pixs and find the newer 2/4's, there eight to a gable for re-enforcement. Lowered my Home Ins. to 1500.00/replce cost at 245K with a whole bunch of better coverage, this one helped greatly......

    Wow thanks for the help man, I am going to try the junk yard dog sight now. I did look at LMC but couldn't pin point exactly what I needed.
    And yes, I am in Alaska. The sun is shining just under 18 hours a day now and highs are in the 60's. Doesn't get much better than this! Again, thank you.

    Hi there, I cannot yet reply to your PM because I have to meet the minimum 15 posts. Thank you for asking about my progress. I have found the seat I needed from someone on craigslist but now I'm on the search for the seat belt parts that attach to the seat! (It's always something!)

    Again, thanks for checking on me.

Why won't my mustang just work!?

by Springthing on 11-07-2010 at 07:43 PM
So for the past year I've been having trouble with the mustang. It kind of sucks because that's my gas saver. It's a v6 mustang so it's good on gas.

The car started to lurch. The car started to stutter. The car started to hesitate on the road.

So after a little bit I got to being able to get the nerve up to fix what I thought was the issue. Plugs and wires.

So I did my plugs, my wires and I sat in the car and went for a short drive and POOF! it works

Uncategorized it's time to vent. Brakes on 1999 Suburban K2500. (Part 2)

by Springthing on 08-08-2010 at 01:52 PM
Friday morning I head up to the dealership. I have a few coffees in the waiting room and they come back, finally, with the fact that the ABS light is on because the front left (driver's) ABS sensor is out and needs to be changed out. But the whole assembly is one unit and needs to be changed out, along with the bearing thing..etc etc.

Until then, 'we can't bleed the brakes, the ABS system has to be full functional first'

They need to do both

Uncategorized it's time to vent. Brakes on 1999 Suburban K2500. (Part 1)

W. T. H?

I'm serious right now...wth is up with this stuff??

First, let me say....this is primarily me, venting. I've said most of this stuff before but now I need to get it all out.

I don't even know where to start.

I've had this Suburban for a few years. In that time I've had to replace the front pads four times. I've looked around, I've done some research, and I understand that the brakes for this truck aren't top notch. It won't stop

It's an engine SWAP! Laying the groundwork.

by Springthing on 07-30-2010 at 01:48 PM
More for my sake than anyone, I have decided to write a little about the 454 engine swap out of the 1999 Suburban. I won't be making a How-To, that's for sure, but it will be nice to chronicle the steps to getting a new motor in front of the truck.

I started by digging around a little, asking questions to people online, an engine builder in the area, and doing a little research.

With 205,xxx miles on the truck it's about time I just take care of the problem once and

Ultimate Truck Gear Rocker Pods - Real World Use Update!

by Springthing on 04-03-2010 at 10:21 AM
Weeeeeelll... it's been not quite a year since installing the Rocker Pods from Ultimate Truck Gear. Wow. Just... wow!

Florida.. Canada.. Vegas.. numerous trips to St. Louis, and countless local trips. I can only estimate but I believe I've gone about 20,000 miles since their installation last May(ish). If I went out side and cleaned them up with the hose right now - they would look like they were just installed yesterday. I kid you not!

They have gone through water,
