      Thanks! When I saw the YouTube video for those I just had to build me a set! They’re certainly no lift, but they’re a lot better than standard height jack stands.

      Yeah I wondered if that wouldn’t be the case. I guess if I had heim joints/rod ends it would work. I’ll run it with the 4* caster for now. I’m not willing to have the car inoperable for a day or 7 again just yet!
      :lol:
      Btw, did/are you coming down for MoParty?

      no...sad week, just not in the mood. A good friend passed this week and I am crushed. Besides being my good friend for over 50 years, he took care of the any body and paint work on every hot rod I owned.

          Great meeting you! Man that was such a fun event. I can't wait for next year. Here's a picture I snapped that seems to be getting lots of "Likes" on my IG. I think they like your car more than mine.

              Year it was great meeting you and hanging out. I’m glad you got a picture of the two cars, I was planning to but I’m terrible about remembering to take pictures. I love your car! Every time I looked it over, I noticed something else that I’d missed before. Very well done! What’s your account name on IG?

                A few pictures I found on the MoParty Facebook page. Looks like I might have to do something more to limit body roll next year. Maybe install stiffer springs? I already have the front sway bar installed.

                Looks like this winter I’m gonna have to get the trailer fender tubs put in and get some wheels/tires in the back to fill up that wheel well better as well!

                  Took my car to a hydraulic shop to get the power steering leak fixed. Git it back Friday, took it through a local festival parade Saturday and got a few good pics of it.

                  I measured the ride height Friday to the frame rails and the passenger side was about 1/2” lower, so I raised it up which helped my passenger header not scrape nearly as often as it had. I drove it a decent amount Friday night and Saturday and let me say it again, this thing rides and drives GREAT!!! Now I’m looking forward to doing a few upgrades this winter to add some power!

                    No need for trailer tubs, just do a mini tub on it. A few how-to threads on here.

                    My outer wheel housings are separated from the quarters already where a p.o. hacked the fender lip off too short. I also already have the trailer fenders and want to eliminate the outer wheel housing so I can run 28”+ tires in the rear, with the car slammed down.

                    I like this pic. Not a great shot of the car, but my beautiful wife is waiving at me.

                      30 years from now somebody is going to see this picture, and say, I cannot believe how cheap gas was back then.

                      So true, but I remember trading my 76 W250 factory 440 extended cab truck off when gas hit 1.00 a gallon.
                      Traded it off because it got 4 mpg, for a standard cab, short box Dakota V6 5-speed.
                      The difference in fuel, made the truck payment.

                      Check out the difference in gas prices in the past year…. :BangHead:
