Also they weld in the transmission crossmember. So I am going to have to modify it so it can be removable.

Re: How do you adjust a bolt-on 4 link?

I also decided to change the gas tank out because the one in the truck was leaking. When i drain the gas I will take a picture of the hack job they called a repair. I don't even know where or what this gas tank they had installed even came out of. You can see the size of the new one vs the one that was in the truck. Who can guess what vehicle that gas take should be in?
New tank compared to the one in the truck

One that was in the truck

Re: How do you adjust a bolt-on 4 link?

I should get the 2012 HACK OF THE YEAR AWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I got the front of the truck torn apart and it has reveled another problem to fix.
I tell you what if I ever buy a used mini truck I will def go through everything before I buy it.
Take a good look at the pic. Do you see it?

Look at the frame horns. What the hell did they do? Why did they do that! When I took the core support I figured out how bad a job they did. They hacked up the core support because they f-uped the frame horns so bad. I have to fix this now so everything will line up.

They cut the core support up to fit. Check the pic

Look here They even had the headlight screwed to the core support

What's wrong with the frame horns? When you body drop a truck you have to cut the horns and move them down. If your front end lined up before then I say don't touch it.

Also you have to modify the core support when you do that. That part I think they actually did right. I say you should gusset it if its not already and leave it be.

I don't think it was done right cause it was all shimmed up with washers and body panel shims. If things are done correctly you should not have to hack up the core support. I never have. The frame horns are hot level and it you look at the driver side it looks like it is over to the left so it not aligned with the rest of the frame.

Re: How do you adjust a bolt-on 4 link?

Since my front end was looking a little ragged. Grill barely hanging in there, valence drugged and bowed core support hacked to hell and back . I am going to change the whole thing out. So this is what got for it. I have to still get a hood and core support. The reason I go two set of head lights cause I found these at one junk yard and found the envoys at the last yard at the last second. The stuff I got is not great and will need some repair so I am hoping you guys can help me fix it the correct way.
