Re: Air shock install with pics
I hope she starts riding better if not, like you say, a dream soon. Tired of picking my dentures off the dash from the harsh ride !
I just bought those Sensa-Tracs today for the front. The pair of 37036s were $56.00 CDN each and the pair of 37095s were $53.00 each. lifetime, like you said.
I ripped the old ones off yesterday so I'm good to go tomorrow to get these new ones back on.
I'll have to wait to test drive em' as I've got to finish bending up and replacing the new lines that run from the front brake hoses over the TTB to the union under the master cylinder.
That's the whole reason I had the truck in the air. As a matter of fact I was in at Best Price Auto today and I pigged out and bought new calipers, rotors, pads and inner wheel bearing seals.
They were so cheap I couldn't resist. I needed to turn my replacement rotors for the first time since they were new 5 years ago. They wanted $20.00 CDN to turn them or $38.00 for new ones. I went new.
The calipers were $25.00 CDN each with a $45.00 CDN core charge each (guess I'll be taking back the old ones). With gas soaring outta sight if either of these calipers had been sticking, the mileage increase will pay off the new ones in no time.
Went to General Bearing and picked up the real deal; Timken inner and outer bearings for $13.23 and $14.51 CDN ! Gonna pack em' with synthetic grease and hope for another 1/2 mpg improvement (wishful).
I won't be running out of things to do, I'm just killing time until my new door shells and other fender come back from the paint shop.
After they're on, it's new rear quarters (pre-painting and glueing them on) and a hood. Then every panel will be brand new (counting last year's new tailgate, fender and under grill piece).
That ought to keep me busy. Let's just hope gas doesn't get so prohibitive I have to buy a ricer and park this !
