Here is a little view of the slick roads I was driving this summer...



It does not look like much but it was as slippery as ice.... 😎

Ya it actually looks a lot worse than it is. The passenger door and fender need to be replaced as does the hood. Also I am going to need new cab rubber bushings. Yes I flipped it on its side but got a buddy to right it up and I drove it home. I am going to need to do some repairs this summer..... 😎

Earlier someone was wanting more detailed info on the front suspension of my 94 Yukon....

Removed this...

and this...



with rear spring shackels that were rubbing against the frame and seised...



and a drive shaft that was siesed...



and this cracked front rotor...



among other junk that had stopped the whole front suspension from moving and articulating.... 😎

My buddy Rick at Chilliwack Spring Service came up with simple but cool way to use the stock front sway bar of the 79 Chevy....



by making this bracket that goes on top of the Dana 60.....😎
