    I know I have to get back into my front axle and replace the axle tube seal on my rig.

    Do we have anything planned for tech days comin up around here or PHX?

    My driveway this morning. Power steering pump and lines. Also someone elses rear control arms need to be un-taco'd. There will be wrenching and drinking starting shortly.

    Power steering - fixed
    new alternator - installed
    bearing on idler pulley - shot, needs to be replaced, makes nasty knocking noise, embarrassing. I'm gonna yank it back out tomorrow until I get a new bearing for it.

    Glad to help on your rear arms. That one was bent with a capitol F.

    Tried to drive over them to straighten. Didn't work. Put them in my press, got them mostly straight, then welded angle iron to them. They're pretty straight now, and beefed up.

    Just an observation, the stock rear lowers on the 95 were no where near as beefy as the ones that were on my 94 and Ross' 94.

    20 ton standing press. Harbor Freight baby! That cheap ass press has more than paid for itself in the last couple years.
