wooohooo so it came home last night around midnight.

ordered a pillow joint thing for my shaft cuz it has HELLA play....shoulda seen that coming lol

anyways, it drives at about 35mph alright for no shocks, old tires and a loose steering shaft lol

hopefully even though its raining my shop teacher'll let me weld on my shock hoops for the front and a crossmember for the rear so i can get those guys on. and whenever the pillow joint/bearing comes in ill get that in ASAP cuz i know its gunna make a world of a difference in my steering.

pics later when i have actually decent ones and its not raining.

putting a trackbar will improve the steering a good amount!

No..I'm not talkin s*** about your truck if thats what your thinking...? I don't even have room to talk crap because my truck sits stock even though I've had the body lift waiting in my room for the past 2 months.lol I don't know what your getting at.
I'm simply just asking a few questions...

Sorry?
