    Actually I liked to 80 more but...

    a friend sold it to me and he found an '89 62 with 83K.
    After driving it he decided he didn't like it and told me he wanted his '91 80 back.
    I told him he was insane because the 80 has 210k, birfields are crying for help, and it's slower than Anna Nicole on a 8 pill high, but who am I to twist his arm.

    Therefore I am now on the 60/62 team cus this thing is barely used. Only thing I don't like about it is that the steering ratio is too slow and is slow to return to center so maybe a caster adjustment is needed? I guess that will come with the SOA and 35's. Any estimates on the time needed to complete a SOA assuming all needed pieces are present?

    Clean rig! Are you doing the SO yourself? If so it is only a matter of how fast you are. If you are having it done, I would give it atleast a week or two. Remember that you will have to buy things like driveshafts and shocks after the SO.

    You are indeed a sorry dog :rolleyes:

    Good luck on your new project, the ferg's 60 is sweet. The S/O should cure the 60/62 tail drag just fine. :D

    CD took that well. Too well... I was hoping for some cross forum flaming.

    Anyway- Ferg's write up was pretty good. The search engine wasn't doing it for me, so I decided to review ALL the 60 oriented threads- bout halfway done.

    Boat pad decided to take a dump on me the other day so that ahead of this project but it's on the Jan-Feb project docket. Probably will enlist a weekend warrior or two to assist. I hope less than 50 man hours and maybe change gears the next weekend.
