You would prefer a 700r to a T400 on something with that much torque?

Thinking 4L80

Good choice

Need them on the front, rear is OK but they don't get same road debris or abuse as the front does.

I need ideas too on the air cleaner. I posted a couple ideas in post 42. The 90s GM filter will work, but I want a round canister if I can find one that doesn't break the bank.

Going to get the front end weighed so I can order my springs and get this thing going.

Yep, going to stay with springs and Deavers. Found a vid using the sliders, think they will be just fine and keep me lower.

Got covers for the battery terminals. It also starts easy all the time now so the effort was really worth it. 

Got my 2nd set of spacers in, billet so they are stronger than most wheels. 2.5in with 14mm studs onto the 9/16 stock studs giving me a 4.5bs. This allows running the H1 wheels on the stock axles and can put on stock wheels if need be anytime. Thinking of running a steel outer shim so the H1 wheel bolts up to it flat and not into the machined surface with BIG holes.

If the rain quits this week I am going to put the front lift springs on to level this thing out. It has a 4 inch block in back and I can replace that with a 2in I have or just throw the new springs out back. I need the lift for the 37 tires.

Wheels look good, just a little small for my taste.

Garage door opener on the fitz. Had a power outage, then a surge and it works when it wants to now. LM 8500. Have a new control panel on order. They are sending out new ones like warranty/over 5 years old!

Funny, the guy I got my axle from was touting that guy big time. Even wanted me to go up to the shop but I didn't have time.

He had nothing but good to say about the guy, but was up front he was pricey.

Good looking rims. I can never get the offset right, plus = Neg???

Ordered spacers for the Burb to run the H1 wheels. Have two 2.5" already so that gives me a 4.5 BS.

Just really an issue when everyone is in a hurry to get to school. See parents and kids doing it. Most just merge with no issue, some just go all the way to the end and cause the issue.

The signs say "lane ends merge left" The driver in that lane does in fact have to merge in front of some one right? As long as they are trying to merge safely, why not let them in?

Its a right turn lane only, no merge. No lane ahead just kids and crosswalks.
