    As the one that is currently in the process of reassembling his own engine, I resent that! :smack:

    If you gave me something to use I wouldn't expect you to drive out of your way to get it back. But I guess that's just me :notsure:

    I'd like to think you could have figured out "have" should have been "gave" but it's fixed now for your convenience :cheers:

    Yeah i've considered AP also, but I haven't heard great things about the standards (from people with weight) and the expos are overkill for me i think, aren't they like 3-4 inches of lift and need 500lbs of constant weight? Im nowhere near that, thats why i'm considering the dakars, so i can add a leaf later down the road if i add more..

    I know for my application they work great, even as being a daily driver without having anything in the back loaded up.

    Nothing wrong with it other than I want a little more lift out back myself after the weight I’ve been adding...

    It is relevant if case I blow my head gasket, I'm going to need a water pump gasket.
