    Default Restoring 1990 Silverado

    I'm looking for a good place to buy parts for a 90 silverado 1500. I'm more or less just going to be freshening it up, because it is actually in pretty good shape. It did however sit for 3 or 4 years, so I'm going to be replacing sparkplugs,wires,brake lines,rotors,pads,suspension, and anything rubber I can find. If anybody else has any other ideas of what should be replaced that would be great.

    A little back story, this is my dads truck that he bought new back in 90. It was the truck I grew up riding around in so it holds sentimental value to me. He recently passed away so I'd like to get the truck running well again as kind of way to remember him.

    I appreciate the help.

    RockAuto.com is a great source for all parts. They have great quality parts at reasonable prices. The fact that it sat for 3 or 4 years shouldn't create any real problems. I would suggest that you replace the fuel filter, though. Also, take a good close look at the tires and see if they have any dry rot. You don't want to drive around on tires that my blow out and ruin all your work!
    Good Luck and God Bless
