Re: Project SINOMA

That's weird, it should get stored. Just so you know since changing that boot and putting a few miles on my truck it doesn't come out of 5th anymore, and I used to have a problem with it popping out of reverse which doesn't happen anymore either. Soft boot FTW.

Re: Project SINOMA

yes one is the old 12pin ALDL like i have (AKA, OBD1) but i have the transition under hood pcm. the other is the 16pin J1962 (AKA OBD2). all the plug determines is a way to interface, if you have the transition crap then it makes no difference.

It did have codes stored, forgot to update yesterday. 5 to be exact Electronic spark control failure x2, MAP low voltage, O2 too rich, EGR fault. I cleared them but got a MAP low voltage again this morning.

Re: Project SINOMA

If you were closer I'd have a buyer for those wheels. Those should look gnarly on there though. You need some spacers.

Re: Project SINOMA

yeah remember i wanted longer uppers so my alignment could be better? i wanna get those and put em on before i put the new tires on the front, wider would be nice. if i did get spacers i would only want like 3/4" to 1... im leery about it because i dont want to put extra stress on the bjs

Re: Project SINOMA

thanks man, im kinda gonna rely on my step dad here, he seems to know where to find anything for cheap. i want a new bed, its not in as good of condition on the bottom so im goin for a new one... i want to clean up my frame this time too so it looks nicer underneath, as far as tail lights go im not sure what i want to do this time, my original plan was always to do a complete fullsize light conversion, i never got around to doing the front and was satisfied with what i have now,

one idea i had was to go with a nbs sierra... with the 3 color tails, the only issue with that is if i did wind up doing the front im either going to need to cut into the hood or make it dip down in the middle...

but im not set on that, i do like the front i have now and have plans to modify it as well, what other tails would look good?

edit: im also fond of my tails now and would like to try them again, i think i could make them more flush this time around...

Re: Project SINOMA

Do Blazer tails or something that better fits the shape of the body. I like your current tails but the shape is kinda wrong for the truck. FS lights=too damn big for S trucks.

The only thing that freaks me out about them is there's no bushings I don't think. The pivot points are metal on metal.

Re: Project SINOMA

Yeah but they cost a shit ton. Just pick them up and see how they do. In theory they should be just fine as long as you keep them lubed. Maybe try dropping Speedway a line and asking them what kind of grease they recommend and maybe ask if they've gotten any feedback about how the control arms do on daily drivers.
