    Got the rear shocks in fedex today. The fronts probably will not arrive till monday or tuesday. I ordered new moog spring insulators for the rear springs from a local parts store. I figure if I am putting new spring on I might as well change those out also. Now I just have to resist the urge to install the rear shocks and springs before the fronts arrive. Oh and sell my oem headlight housings that I have had on CL for a month to finish covering the cost of my suspension upgrades.

    Got my parking lights in from my parents in the mail today. Also I buffed them out and I put gas in the truck. She's overdue for a big wash and wax. Also in recent and more exciting news I also am in the process of asking my girlfriend's grandparents for her hand in marriage. Wish me luck!

    If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.

    I installed my Bilstein shocks and coil springs today. Wow, between the shocks and the hellwig anti sway bars (I moved the rear to the second hole on the sway bar) my truck has almost no body roll on corners. What a difference in handling. There is absolutely no nose diving when braking and the truck stays level when accelerating. Big difference from the monroe reflex I put on the front last year. The rear does ride a little more rough with the new springs and shocks. Good luck @rileyjr16 ! by the way I hope to have that in the mail monday

    Thanks @Pikey can't wait for it to come in. Well. Yesterday I beat the trucks suspension to smitherines (or so it felt to me). Drove about 25 miles to go deer hunting, went down a gravel road full of potholes and thought I blew the whole suspension apart. I didn't and she rides just like she normally does. Probably gonna put her through the same stress today. Steady looking for little things to upgrade to further her life from 254,000 miles to 354,00 miles. But all I'm gonna do is put some go-go juice in her and probably spray her off later if I don't find a touchless automatic.

    EDIT: Oh forgot to add the deer part. Shot at a doe yesterday and shot low and short into a stump.

    Found my oil leak. Looks like its either rear main seal or oil filter adapter/lines. Maybe even both. Also tried to figure out my electrical problem. Found out it was my new alternator (January). Needless to say, I am very fast at doing alternators now lol. Have done 4 on my truck now, luckily Ive got a lifetime warranty!
