I know I have not been around much the last few years so I hate to ask for favors. But does any one in Bozeman have a big floor jack and BIG jackstands I can use? I need to pull my Radflo shocks of my 80 and mail them in to be rebuilt. That means removing them, installing some spare shocks I have, then reinstalling the Radflos a few weeks later. I am also going to swap to new springs while k am in there.

The thing is I have all my tools except jack and jackstands. If someone has some I can use it would save me from buying it all. I travel full time for work, essentially nomadic living in company housing. A floor jack doesn't travel well. So if I bought it I would have to get rid of it when I am done or leave it with my friend in Bozeman.

If anyone has this stuff and is willing I could come and do the job at your place. Or borrow the stuff and work at my friends in Bozeman. If I borrowed stuff I would be happy to hand you a few hundred dollars as "deposit". I am happy to do whatever works best for you. I am happy to "pay" with a 12 pack of beer, just name you flavor. Or If you can help out you are welcome to my take off springs, OME 861/862. They fit a 80 series.

Thanks guys, I know this is is a big favor to ask.

I have a big floor jack I am not using right now. I do not think my jack stands are tall enough for what you need for (tall) frame support but you are welcome to use them as needed.

Dana, you can use my garage and Jack/Jack stands. I still owe you for the press tools.
Thanks Sam. I will take you up on that. Do you still have the same phone number?

I should be getting the new springs and used oem shocks any day now. If I can get them installed asap that would be great I dont know how long Radflo will need to do a rebuild. I have to leave here around early October so I dont really have a lot of time.

I've got a set of pretty standard height jack stands that you're welcome to borrow, but I'm not certain that they're what you need.
Thanks guys. I really appreciate the offer. I think I am going to try to work at Sam's house for this one. This is what makes the community work so well.
