somebody stated that when it rains, it pours on me. well, that aint the half of things. finally had some help today to get springs to rebuild my front springs that i had """broke""", well after almost burning a car to the ground, we had several sets of springs to choose leafs from. well, jack up zuktanic n put her on stands. decided to redo my inner axle seal yet again, hopefully it will not leak this time. well, i was that far into it so i decided to pull the other axle n put in some nice low 512s again. like to be able to crawl. i will just have to live without my 70 mph on the big roads...../wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif well, just after we got it jacked up, i got to lookin at my frame. damed if i didnt bend the freakin frame. turns out my springs were fine, i managed to bend the whole dam frame fromt he shock tower forward. put a nice lil kink in it at the the shock tower. bent it down. well, swapped out my gears, put in new seals, and then got out the dam frame machine, fixed it. it has stress cracks starting in it looks like, so i am thinkin on goin over the whole area with my wire feed welder n fixin the cracks. need to patch it together for the melt. no time to do a frame job. nope, naaa aahhh, no way. well, after gettin the front done, frame, gears, seals, etc. we moved to the back. well, got things all loose cetp the brake lines, hate to have to bleed the lines. figured id leave them hooked till last, slip them out, gear swap, slip them back together. not many headaches on brakes then. well, got pass side axle loose ready to come out, noticed a drip...drip...drip...drip, dam/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif now i need axle seals too. already called advance auto, 2.99 plus theiir in stock. well, off to advance tamaree after fathers day dinner with dad. hopt to have zuktanic runnin on the road again tamaree. now, still gots to rebuild the rear upper shock mount, get front d-shaft back n in, front shocks and the list goes on and on and on and on.........

anybody got a spare seat at the melt. """"MIGHT""""" need it, might now. depends in my cousin n her kids come down from northern indiana. if they dont come, wont need a seat, if they do show up, will need a seat for saturday if anybodys got one extra. thanks.

BB- See hun this is even more of a reason for you to get a female in that passengers seat of yours, maybe you'd wheel less aggressively then.....WHAT AM I THINKIN?? Nevermind! Sorry to hear about all the crap that has went wrong..glad ya got it rolling again though. Did you get your front drive shaft from AAP? Did you get a chance to send out that AC bracket to me? Let me know what ya want fer it.
All is well here, mitch got the new clutch and tranny back in the truck and still making the same dang noise(vibrating noise while shifting between 4th and 5th) not as loud anymore but still there...can't figure out what it is! With a ZUK ya always got something to work on.
Love ya
