    WHAT DID YOU USE TO TAKE OFF THE FACTORY REAR SHACKLES? A TORCH, AIR CHISEL? AND IS IT COMPLETELY BOLT ON AFTER THE OLD SHACKLE REMOVED NO NEED FOR ANY FURTHER MODIFICATIONS.

    DAZED AND CONFUSED IN A 74 BLAZER

    realsquash: Yeah i wheel in the summer i guess after living here pretty much my whole life and playing football in this heat for the last 4 summers im pretty used to it and dosen't bother me all that much. Just drink plenty of water!!


    Zepplin: I used a 4" grinder to grind off the head of the rivit then i used a punch and a sledge hammer. I did have a little bit of a problem getting the 2 under neath the frame rail to line up so i just bored out the hole with a drill to get the supplied bolt in and other than that not a problem. also have to make the rivet hole just a tad bit larger for the bigger bolt. (just make sure you get wd-40 on all the bolts before you do the install)

    Oh c'mon 'squash... There's natural grass here... As long as you fashion a dam, seed & fertilize the pee out of the area in question, and flood it once or twice a week... [​IMG] That's natural isn't it?... Hehehe, I haven't lived here my whole life, but most folks I know wheel at night in the summer. Easier on the equipment and driver.

    I noticed you had to use the big washers on the brake lines where they exit the frame. I did the same. Would be nice if they made true "bolt-on" products. Nice truck.

    yeah the nut on the brake line was going right through the frame, so i had to buy a washer. (Yeah but you think for that kind of money it would either fit or come with a washer.) But a trip to napa fixed it!
