Re: sfa swap question, what happend to it????????

Well, since there is no direct name on this post as to who you are referring to, then I'll assume it's me. Only thing thats been done is I got the old pitman arm off and new one installed. I am waiting for parts:

Rear U-Bolt Flip Kit
Brake Lines
Drag Link
Zero-Rate


Oh yeah, noticed a mondo dent and gouge in my truck today that wasn't there the other day. Don't ask me how it happened but oh well, I don't care. It's on the drivers side a foot in front of the tail light about 3" in diam dent and the gouge in paint goes down to bare metal and is 1/2" wide by 2" long. Go figure.

Re: sfa swap question, what happend to it????????

Ahh, ok. The u-bolts were pretty much the only thing. Didn't upset me too much. What upset me was when the dealer ordered the wrong ones that I had to wait a week for. But oh well, I got my money back and ordered a u-bolt flip from ORD which will be way better anyway.

Re: sfa swap question, what happend to it????????

Speaking of going wrong...I started the sfa tonight after work...Was doing good, Rear end out...taking off the rear
springs(what a pain in the a$$) The gas tank had to come down to get the front spring bolt out...Anyway got springs off...getting ready to start the shackle flip, and noticed the the old spring is about 3-4 inches longer than the new one!!! They gave me the wrong springs...they must be for jeep or something? 48" inches long...This sucks...
