    ok first off..i think that my rear leaf springs are very very week..
    before having to live in my truck, i had the typical rear end squat. while preping to move in my truck. i removed the rear seat so that i can have more room...and just by pulling out the rear seat, the rear end of my truck no longer squats..in fact my rear now sits higher than the front.. :confused: :confused: ..i know that seat isn't that heavy..i carried it with one hand by the handle...
    so my rear springs must be shot...anyone else ever experience this?


    also my rear window..it is a manual window..and it decided the other day that it wasn't gonna roll down anymore..i turn the handle and it just goes round and round but the window doesn't budge..so i am gonna take the pannel off of the inside and take a peek in there...anything i should look for in particular?


    thank you

    yes im sure they are long ago worn out, time for new ones, its an old truck

    i would have them re arched or get new ones

    but it will probably ride more like a real truck once thats done, instead of saggy spongy liek it is right now after years of use and abuse

    good luck

    well for your rear window i think that maybe it is locked and or the locking pin is still engaged, real easy fix
