X2 what surreal said! And in addtion, one can learn something useful to help oneself.
The best way to show you feel a thread is "worthless" is not posting on it.
Tonight I endeavored to find a mounting location under the truck for a set of Shocker XL horns, but ultimately liked none of my options due to rock, dirt, and debris concerns. So, I pulled the grille off and located some down-firing locations behind the grille based on individual bell length. Next I took some rough measurements and determined that I need to get a 1" high x 26" long piece of steel or aluminum for use as a mount plate -- for which I intend to go shopping in the morning. I'll also need some L brackets to support the bottoms of the bells but I'll need to complete the primary bracket before I can suss those out.
Why the negativity?
It seems that this thread isn't worthless due to the 200+ pages....
We're all GM guys, lets keep this forum positive - wouldn't want to turn it into something like GMFS, those guys seem to be real jerks!
Sounds like a home depot kind of morning! Have a blast.
I just ordered my 4.56's for front and rear, now hopefully my mechanic friend can help me with them soon!
Replaced wipers, all 3 Universal Joints and the Shift Shaft Seal on the transmission. Now my 60-70mph driveline vibration is gone and my transmission fluid leak is fixed!
Next up, front idler, pitman, steering dampner and ball joints....
Fabricated and fitted a bracket for my Shocker XL's out of 1/8" steel. Still need to fabricate polymer spacers, fabricate bell supports, paint all metal, and install it. Hopefully tomorrow.
Well, I guess it has started all over again now. I finely finished my truck a little over a year ago and have done almost nothing to it in over a year. Yesterday I put a new AC Delco 145 amp Alternator on my truck to fix the battery light problem. "220 dollars at the dealer for 145 amp and new" - "Re manufactured from advance 105 amp 300 dollars" I also ordered a new cowl hood for my truck and ordered a set of four Bilstien HD shocks. Will post more after installs. :glasses:
New belts put on before it got dark.
MaMa, detailed the inside while I two wheeled to work! She's a Keeper........
