OK, just got back from taking the 80 for a spin after doing the birf repack the last day and a half. Coming from someone who normal didnt do much work on the truck besides oil changes and bumper installs, its very rewarding to do a somewhat, big job on the truck. Not only does it feel good to finish it but not have it fall apart on the first drive. I took advice from Dan who said it wouldnt be a bad idea to do all the wheel bearings and im happy i did, the truck rides noticably smoother and by replacing the trunion bearings it turns easier, i think....could just be in my head. I also noticed it cut my "birfield click" by about 60%. To make sure everything was still intact i slammed the brakes a few times with no problems but i did notice when sitting in traffic on an off ramp i hit the brakes when the truck was going maybe 2-3mph, just rolling cause the ac kicked in and the ABS went off. i tried to duplicate it but couldnt. I hit the brakes hard, i hit them easy. Do think they are just settling in? Nevertheless, its all done thanks to the FSM, the board, and the birf dvd. Now the true test will be to see if i get any leaks in the next few weeks. Keep my fingers crossed.
