Help with it or swap part for part? How bad is changing it?

I am going to swap out whole thing but will do it when I do the lower control arms and will toss on the new tie rods n such all at once, but will need to do it when i can take it for a an alignment after. Its not terrible, but not something i want to mess with on a weekend off to enjoy myself.

I just use a gallon of fluid every month or two for about 2 years, but I do have a spare rack.

2. Sparky - 1 - assorted bags of chips/snacks
3. Bartonmd - 1 probably - All the STDs
4. Regulator - theres a few of us - Cowboy beans
5. Wishbone - 1 - pop, dinner rolls, still have a ton of red solo cups from Chi meet.
6. Fletch09 - 1, maybe (feel free to move down as the list grows)
7. big ed - 1, bringing Ms SilverBullet -1 - strong maybe.
8. xavierny25 +1, not sure what to bring but I'll figure that out in time.

Oh well here we go, people dropping out like goons now. I see how it is. Somehow family is more important than a bunch of truck nerds, I don't get it... :raspberry:

I have two options for the trip - turnpike almost the whole way (20 bucks round trip) or take 30 part way before jumping up to the turnpike (10 bucks round trip). Distance and time is similar, but 30 is a very dull drive. Not sure if the turnpike is any better though.

Well, I could take 30 to 33 and that would avoid tolls, and it is still fairly direct, but not sure if that would be a bad idea or not.

Input?

take 30 to 19 and straight north to my place. couple extra miles but 30 is pretty fast and 19 isn't horribly bad unless you find a buggy.

I'm headed to the Red Roof first on Friday afternoon. What's the plans for Friday evening, any idea?

@Matt I still think you should come, you've got all next week to prepare... :wink:

Doo It.

I will be up Saturday at some point. Drove truck to work since it has not moved much in couple weeks. I wish I had some time to mess with it cause it is kinda rough...speakers blown, brakes on wear tabs and a rattle that I am sure is from Interlake. Maybe rocks on skids, but something.

I also need to spray out the radiator since it is running 15 degrees hotter and went thru a ton of mud.
