    it's been a week since i've been on-line to check post.yes it was a straight-up trade.he has put so much time/money into it and got tired of working on it.i personally would've been even more determined than ever.probably failed to mention 200k+miles on the lesabre.oh it's got a cobra cb,too.but it,s more than just putting mufflers on it.i need to swap in the 3/4 running gear to replace the blown 12bolt.it,ll probably be closer to February-march before i can get to it.i'm not living in Ionia any more,i'm south of Saranac,3mi. from exit 59 off i-96.15mi.closer to work than i was in a 5bdrm farmhouse(WITH ATTACHED GARAGE)first i've had a garage.but once the truck is in,i've got about 1ft. front/back to move.the new truck is too tall to fit in:( the'80 has 6in.lift but not sure of manufactuer.it looks like a 3in.block/3in.spring,w/6in.front spring.are the block lifts done this way?
