Did some modding!......56k no way!

this will be kinda a pick up post for l2en's sad sad post!.

I took the rear shocks and my steering stabilizer off and painted them silver and then cleared them.........then put the black boots back on them......match my truck now and are not all rusted! I still have the front 2 shocks to do but they are going to be a PITA to get off........

I also put on my diff cover last week! i love it......i am still considering painting it!

and a couple weeks ago i did the second factory fog light switch mod....i hooked this switch up to my projector lights.......i just cut the stock bezel, then used bondo to shape it....i still have a little work to do to it yet!

i was so about to man!! But you gotta do what you gotta do. At least youve got a factory block in there to hold things straight. Stackin blocks is pretty common in a lot of lifts ive seen installed lately.

you have any other pics of how that stabilzer is mounted to the crossmember? i am doing mine tomorrow and the crappy black and white pics on the instructions suck!

that isn't a bought stabilizer......the upper bracket on the crossmember is a stock '79 F-150 stabilizer bracket....it is the bracket that attached to the tie-rod and the other i had my cousin make in his fab shop...............i had the steering stabilizer shock that was new, and have another if i can figure out how to make a second stabilizer work i will install it!

i just held the bracket in the center of the lowest point and marked it with a sharpie....then pilot drilled then drilled the 2... 1/2" holes......the i put the shock on that bracket and pulled the cylinder out half way, put the other bracket on the tie-rod and tightend it down.....hope this helps!
