    How hard was it to feed the SeaFoam in to the line? Just wondering because I'm hesitant on doing it with the worry of putting it to much and hydro locking the engine.

    How are the prices at energy suspension because they are one of the very few that sell poly bump stops. Currently my truck has none... they all rotted out.

    I re-pressurized the air system so that I can continue to use my air horns (fun!) ... until I have my EDC mounted (after which I won't need an external air source).

    its really not hard at all.... i had the exact same worries as you, but i finally grabbed my cajones and did it, i followed SEAFOAM's website, not any of the retarded youtube videos.

    i paid $35.30 for the sway bar poly bushing set off amazon. the prices are great!

    just ,make sure you go to energysuspensions website and find the pieces your looking for and cop down the part number. Then search for it on amazon, the descriptions and product info is notoriously inaccurate, but as long as the part number matches your all good

    I ordered a 13oz can of Mopar Combustion Chamber Cleaner in preparation for a top-end cleaning that I intend to do. (Via the TBI's PCV port.)

    @reggiecab2000, here's a link for you: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=mopar+combustio...versus+seafoam

    When the results come up take the first one and pay particular attention to LS6427's commentary. Good stuff. Further research on MCCC (I did a LOT of searching and reading about it, tonight, after stumbling onto it) suggests it's the right thing to use for a top-end cleaning, as that's what it's designed for ... whereas Seafoam is merely an all-purpose liquid being used for top-end cleanings ... and only getting some of the top-end clean. (Back 2 cylinders, at worst ... back 3-4 cylinders, at best, really.)

    LOL, that's ok. I theoretically know where the TBI's PCV port is. I say 'theoretically' because I've read the where/how of it and even found lots of pics of the hose running from the fixed PCV orifice to the TBI on various GM engines. However, it's dark out and I'm not at the family lake house's lit shop, so I can't go out and compare to my own engine.

    Learning one's way around one's engine without an engine diagram or an experienced engine guy to tell you what's what ... is a pain. I mean some things are obvious, but there are just too many hoses running about doing too many important things to guess and be wrong. (And I'd hate to put this stuff into the crankcase by mistake! Talk about some bad mojo.)

    Looks like I need to acquire a 3/8" hose for this activity, too. I wonder where I can get that... maybe some fuel line hose from an auto parts store. Will check in the morning.
