Basically a build I guess or small resto. This is a beaten to death oil field truck. It has a broken rear leaf and front drive shaft. For now I am going to replace the driveshaft with a cheapy from napa. I found a junkyard leaf spring for a 100 bucks, it will be temporary to make sure the truck can be dependable again. I am going to continue to use it in the field. It is running pretty rough right now. My mechanic said it could be the temperature sensor that tells the ECM how hot or cold the motor is to adjust the mix. Where is that located at and can I change it at my garage?
First up is a tune up
After I get it going and it runs good the mods can happen.
Bilstiens all the way around
New deavers 3 inch leaf springs and all associated hardware
16 inch cragar soft 8's
32 inch tires, ( undecided)
Fix some body damage and have it painted semi flat black, maybe. Depends if a better idea happens along. Fender flares and running boards are coming off too
Can I run a 2 inch spacer with the adjustable billies and 881 ome springs and set it at about 3 to 3.5 lift to match the 3 inch rear springs
