    @foxrcing07 I'm not too familiar with the dual sticks. But I'm getting ready to order mine.

    I'm also looking at replacing the trans shifter bushings before I put the trans in... So I started thinking about the TCase shifter bushing... Does the dual stick even use the original Tcase shifter bushing or does that get removed?

    She ain't stock anymore.
    Last couple pages of this thread are cracking me up. If anyone needs help this weekend, or Dave's leafs show, I'm down to help out.

    HOLY CRAP my leaf springs are coming Friday! I had prepared myself for a week of shipping and continually hitting refresh on my tracking details. I am super excited. If anyone is willing to help me let’s do this.

    Now you guys DO KNOW what you’re doing, right? I don’t want any scratches on my leaf springs. Maybe soft felt gloves would be good.

    How long does it take to do front and rear?

    All day with this crew! Gotta account for some serious BSing time.

    3 to 4 hours is probably a more realistic figure. With all of us we can do the front and back at the same time.

    if you don't want scratched leaf springs you shoulda talked to UPS, 99% guarantee they come pre scratched


    start thinking now do you want a sway bar or not,
    what rate springs are on your kings?
    also are we doing UCA's or not?

    Could you guys do Saturday afternoon? I have a lifetime alignment deal at Firestone and could go there after they are on
    as it’s my DD going to keep the sway bar, springs are 650#, and yes UCA’s.

    Alright, let's start nailing down specifics here.

    How's going?
    What time?
    Where?

    Should we start a PM conversation?

    I'm in. Have a jack and 2 stands I can bring.

    *edit: there doesn't appear to be rain forecasted for Saturday, but a covered area might be advisable anyway.

    @Uphillshunter can you please include me in the conversation? I don’t have any work to do but am willing to help where I can and possibly with a location if need be.
