Stole the clamp from the extra boot kit I bought and managed to get it on:



Now, to order a replacement clamp and get the passenger side CV axle switched out.

Back-up switch arrived:


Got some parts to start my blinker relocation. Still need to find the crimp on electrical connectors for the harness plug.

2 small jobs today. Took longer to track down the part numbers.

Replaced the back-up switch on the MT:

The old:

Testing the old switch. Worked fine when I pressed on it but a bunch of gear oil burped out in the process. Wondering if that was the problem.


Torquing down the new one, just enough room for the socket and wrench:


New one in:

Tested out just fine:


New screws and backing nuts for the tail-lights. The philips heads were looking ugly and the backing nuts had stripped out.

New backing nuts in:

All back together:

Looks like seats are the next mod. Looking at Corbeau, Cipher or possibly Recaro. Starting my research and looking to order in the next couple weeks.

Did the passenger side LBJ and tie-rod. Also, threw in the CV axle that I rebooted with the boot slide mod.

Tire off:


Tie-rod popped:


Popping the LBJ:


And popped:


The old and the new:


All back together:


Angle on the boot fins look pretty good:


Backside shot:


Just have to reboot the one I pulled today and then I'll do the driver side. All-in-all, it went pretty smooth. It was nice having the pullers. Tightened 'em up a wee bit then gave the knuckle a good pop with a hammer. Came right loose.

BPV relocation bracket installed:



Braking feels so much better, a lot less nose dive.

BigFishAllDay welded on some backing nuts to the skidplate mount tabs he welded on to my Elite bumper. Makes dropping and installing the skidplate so much easier.

Need to make time to install them. The major job is going to be the flywheel. And I'm in the middle of a debate between getting nitrochargers for my OME lift or ponying up the big bucks for Icons.

Well I have a buyer for your "old" ome's and coils if u want to sell... He was looking at having a shop do it and they were going to charge him $80 a shock + install for cheap monroe crap. He was all excited when I was talking about your "premium" shocks and asked if u would sell yours around the same price... So $80 a shock for your used ones, not to bad.
