My guess would be that nothing happened to it. It is probably just coincidence that it happen to go out after the BL.

Nothing in the body lift would affect the alternator unless you played with stuff unrelated to the BL... probably just a coincidence... maybe showed up cause you disconnected the battery? Assuming you did that of course...

Whats that ground that bolts into the engine block? I know my pa bl came with an extension for it. I believe that has something to do with the battery or alternator. If anyone knows what Im talking about.
