    I am installing a 1" ORD body lift this Saturday and possibly my ORD bolt-on steering brace (depending on time). I plan to start around 8:30 in the morning and be done by noon or so. I have things planned for the afternoon.

    I live in Plano TX northwest of 75 and Legacy. If you would like to assist or supervise, the more the merrier. Shoot me a PM and I will give you detailed directions.

    That stuff sounds good. We will have to be easy using the compressor, though. Everything says to use hand tools to remove the bolts so as not to spin the tacked nuts and such. I have been soaking them with Liquid Wrench this week, so I am not too worried. The hardest part will be getting to the front bolts in the radiator housing and having an extension long enough to get to the rear ones without dropping the fuel cell.

    On second thought, bring your pneumatic saw. That could make trimming the bottom of the fan shroud much easier than using an edge grinder or hand saw. I don't think my dremel would have enough to get through it.

    See ya Saturday.
