    I know, I know... "Built not Bought", but I don't have a garage, and I can't do major repairs in my apartment's parking lot.

    Anyways, does ORD do installs? This summer I'm going to need some suspension and steering work done to my truck. I don't know much about ORD, and the web site doesn't mention having a garage on site.

    If you guys do installs, I'll definately swing by sometime to get a quote or two. Thanks.

    think its safe to say that they have a garage...whether or not they do much drive-in work or just do mostly mail order type stuff may be another question tho. I dunno. I wont be near colorado any time soon, so as much as I'd like to get stuff done there, I have never even looked into it.

    I gotta think that the answer is "NO"......

    I'm sure I would've heard someone gloating by now about having their truck worked on by "Dr. Watson" himself...... [​IMG]

    They'd probably also post links to the video of their shop visit, and all the cool goodies in the shop......just to make us all GREEN with envy!

    Say........ maybe THAT's where the "ORD GREEN" color originated? [​IMG]

    I'm sure if you asked around the forum some people in your area could help you. Maybe go over there house,and do what you have to do. Alot of people I know will work for beer

    I haven't been in the area over a year yet, so I haven't met a lof of people from CK5 yet. The ones I have are all over one hour away, which makes things difficult for me if I have to leave the truck overnight and get home.

    Oh, well.

    We don't do installs here, we're pretty busy keeping parts built and shipped! I have some shops around I can recommend but just about anything in colorado is going to be in the neighborhood of $60/hr so I'd recommend finding a bunch of friends to help. That's one of the beautiful things about a K5, you can do most of the work yourself without too much hassle.

    Fox's truck has been worked on here, so has Jon Snow's, (bigred maybe?) I think that's about it.
    I guess you could count Greg Schneggie's, but he replaced his spiders all by himself, just used our floor.

    Nope, never even worked on Cole's truck on the trail. Did work on Ed Fortson's teal Stepside though. I guess that's a famous truck.

    How hard is it to replace the leaf springs, shocks (factory dual shocks per side on front), and bushings for the suspension? I need to freshen up my suspension all the way around. I do know someone with a garage, so maybe I can weasel my way into that garage for a weekend to do the work myself.

    And if it's not that difficult, do you have all of these items for sale at ORD?

    Thanks!

    Changing that stuff is all easy. You can do it in one Saturday in a garage.

    Dr. Watson stocks all that stuff, too.
