    I decided to bite the bullet and spend way too much on my truck yet again. As most of you know my 03 Silverado was my first vehicle and is my pride and joy. An ex or two claimed I love my truck more than them lol. Decided that I want to keep my truck, and Oct 19 I will be reporting to Sheppard AFB for 21A1 Aircraft Maintenance Officer training so I better get the truck in order as soon as I can. I purchased rust converter to help stop the rust on my frame and undercoating once converted. MOOG idler arm, pitman arm, idler arm bracket, inner and out tie rods, and Hellwig front and rear anti-sway bars. While doing this I will replace the stock brake lines with Russel braided stainless steel lines, and front and rear rotors and brakes with a powerstop cross drilled and slotted kit. I will be re-changing my power steering fluid with royal purple psf, and bleeding my brakes with castrol dot 4 fluid. Knocking on wood that no bolts or fasteners are rusted fast. If I can figure how to get the axle out of the rear end I'll replace the rear brake shields and rear emergency brake shoes. If any of you tackled any of this I would appreciate any advice or tips!

    You've got a lot going on there! You're gonna love the sway bars and the brake upgrade. Hope everything goes well.

    I will try to go and drag my dad along again, because he will force me to go with him when he takes his 65 chevelle

    I actually have those but could not break the bolts lose. I think I'll invest in a long pipe for the breaker bar.

    I'll have to wait until February for the front sway bar to arrive from amazon. But your right I probably will since I'm three hours away from my parents.
