    1/10th of a degree

    Just finished the drop on the M/M, and man this 52 year old is tired. Only damage was I hit my left hand with a hammer looks like a swollen orange, kind of missed the ball joint fork. Anyway, it's got all new lower control arm bushings, upper and lower ball joints, all 4 tie rod ends, idler arm, shocks, repacked wheel bearings, sway bar bushings, dropped spindles, and redrilled hubs for larger 14mm studs for the Chevy wheels, and for the rear a pair of 3" blocks and studs fit the bill. Ended up giving it a quicky toe adjustment to get it to the alignment shop. The shop called and told me the drivers side was 1/10th of a degree out, I blame the spindles for that...that I can live with. Truck looks sick. I will add pictures and part numbers to my build thread.

    When you work on that, you need to call it automotive archeology.

    Yeah, you don't go out and buy a part...you have to make it. I bought it in pieces at an estate sale, put it back together and polished it up...unrestored

    I could do the badge swap, but I would need a new tailgate

    You should see the freeway's around here Friday before the meet, Caravans of Dodge Trucks pulling trailers loaded with everything Dodge you can imagine.

    I can just imagine. Have you seen the pro street 85 Ram 50 in Columbus - he is a friend of mine. He was in the Mopar nat video a few years back - extended front end with a blown 392 Hemi in it.
