spent the day trying to swap out my rear springs, the spring hangers were new about 4 years ago so i figured getting the old springs off the truck would be the easy part, guess not, had to torch 3 of them. now i have everything ready to go but no bolts to go through bushings/hangers. they are a weird size, 9/16 x 4-1/2. found a set of 4 from a suspention place in pa for $6.00, locally a fastenter store wants $3.00 per bolt (and no nut or washer either, the "kit" from stengal bros includes a nut & washer) going to check a few other local spots, but will probly order from pa. thats where my hangers & bushings came from 4 years ago. my old springs had defintly lost alot of arch. got springs from a '97 truck for $40 per side, bushings i got locally. im surprized i only got 1 bolt out intact, i anti-seized everything when i put it together 4 years ago, rear shackles were even seized tight, got that loosened. i do still have some frame twist, couldnt put the lift block under the spring pack on left side because it was still 2-1/2" higher at the wheelwell than the other side, i was hoping new spring were the answer, glad i didnt buy brand-new sets, they were anywhere from 90-140 bucks per side where i checked

Cleaned my dad's fishing stuff out of the back seats (last time used: about 4 months ago) and wiped bird crap off the inside of the driver side doors that my dad claimed happened while I was driving. You think I would notice something like that, considering some even landed on the headrest.

Oh, they do. And this was a mess too, down the inside of both F/R driver side doors, on the back window, back wall, jump seat had a bit, driver seat caught some too. This bird won the contest that day.

Went to the junkyard this morning and found an explorer center console that wasnt in the worst shape. spend awhile ripping it out, never knew how hard it was. Maybe it was just me. lol Spent the rest of the day putting it in my truck. Still have to make my seat a 40/40 bucket. Thats tommorow
