Awesome job man! How did the new shackle bushings fit once the OEM ones came off? I may want to order the same ones if they went on without much fuss (like the OME ones). I hear really good things about the Discoverer. Let us know how she does at the Rendezvous!So the lift went on fine, except for the bushings. Even though @DRJ warned me, I decided to do them anyway. After spending HALF of Saturday on to bushings in my passenger leaf spring, on Sunday I decided to take the driver leaf spring and both shackles to a garage and pay them to remove them. Charged me $134 in labor which I was perfectly fine with. Mainly because after I dropped them off in the morning I was able to head back to the house and work on the front suspension. Got really close to done Sunday night and finished up Monday evening after work. Even the CV bushing replacement wasn't that bad. Besides the bushings the only other really annoying part was having the truck completely jacked on stands in my slightly inclined driveway. I was scared to put too much weight on one side so I was shifting and moving each of my 2 jack stands, 2 of @DRJ's that I borrowed, my two bottle Jack's, and my 3ton floor jack. With rear suspension and rebuilding the leafs with 3leaf AALs, you need to be able to control the complete rear axle a bunch. It was tedious but I got it all done. Truck is getting new Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT 285/70/17s on right now, then off-road alignment tomorrow. Still want to do the CMC but didn't make it in time. Think I'll be fine though with my 1.25" wheel spacers. Pics once I get her back from garage.
I would be very interested.I know this is a "Meetups thread" .... but I wanted to post this here, since it would be for NOVA/MD members only.
Gauging interest - would anyone be interested in a group buy of ROAM Adventure Co. Rugged Cases, for the NOVA/DC/MD area?
It would be 20% discount off, with minimum of 20 cases and could get them palletized and freight shipped (saving in shipping costs). Thus the local members only.
