About “#Furniture”

NO LONGER OWNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My old work truck/beater. It was a REAL piece of crap, when I first got it. Did all the work to it the first two months I had it. It was fun as hell to drive. Had it for about 3 years and sold it. Took the money and bought a new living room set with the $1900 I got.

The way I lowered it improved the handling and weight load. Five inch drop up front. Three inch Bell Tech spindles with two inch springs. The rear was cheap as hell to drop. Three inch drop blocks, $30. Cut the rear carriage bolts. take the bottom leaf spring and flip it underside down on the top of the leaf springs. Install new carriage bolt, $.75 each. Tight them down. Cut the extra off the bolt. That gives you another three inches of drop. the benefit of this is. It increases your load weight for haulling. BUT it stiffins up the rearend greatly. The suspension was so tight and increased the handling so much. I could take cloverleaf raps/exits at 65mph with little to no body roll.

About “Neon Nasty”

I traded my Blazer project with no motor and $200 for it. It didn't run when i got it. I was getting bored of the Blazer. I get bored to quick. I received the car July 6th.

Minus the front bumper.
