Re: Project: Minty Fresh

The Jimmy bit me for the first time. Was on the bottom of the sway bar end link and slipped twice into the dust cover.



Had to buy new end links and run to town to get a spring compressor.



As of now.

holy shit. the site wont let you resize them anymore for some reason. you might have to resize them on photobucket, unless thats what you did, then you can disregard this whole post.

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

Got my abs sensor on, Got the caliper on. These dual piston calipers are heavy, and suck. Got my new sway bar end links on. basically done with the front. Didn't feel like stealing the shocks off of the s10 tonight so i called it quits.

Lol, that was nice of him. Getting the tires and front end alignment today?

Procrastination has carried me this far in life, it will carry me to my grave, and hopefully put that off as well.

'98 RCSB on jack stands, waiting on me to get the 4.8 and T56 swap together, while I steal parts off of it to keep the daily going.

'99 2DR 2WD Blazer that I bought for a daily but just can't leave it alone.

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

So i got my shocks swapped over, talk about a pita. Got the wheels swapped off of the s10. Greased the ball joints and put my zq8s on the front. When i put the wheels on i noticed my alignment is totally wack.

I was planning on getting aligned yeah, but its not even drivable, guessing the tires are toed out at least 2 inches per side. It wasn't like this when i did my s10. Is it normal? Do i just tape measure align it the best i can then drive it in and have it done? Did i do something wrong?

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

yeah if you use a tap measure it will get them close enough to drive to the shop.


if the tie rods angled down some from the factory and you lowered it and they are more straight across now, it pushed them out...

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

no, i've still gotta put my blocks in, and have my dad help with a stanley alignment. Might be doing tie rods ends too. And can we keep the gifs to a minimum? It takes 5 minutes for my internet to load one, let alone a page full.
