  1. As far as I'm concerned, you pretty much always need thread tape or sealant on pipe threads. Maybe in a perfect world you don't, but I've never seen a pipe thread that wasn't already somewhat chingered up before installation.
  2. Yeah, but I'm saying compression is compression, it doesn't matter which way the shock is flipped, it's still being compressed on bump and decompressed on droop, so the valving continues to work correctly.
  3. I think it got up to 73° here today. A real scorcher.
  4. Mike...it's still compression no matter which way you face them.

    My 1971 521

    Isn't that what the dolly is for?
  6. People keep telling me all the mountain dew I drink is going to shrink my nuts. I say, when they get to a reasonable size I'll stop drinking it.
  7. Color looks great. Always wanted to do my 510 grabber orange
  8. Looks like most on ebay are the 4wd, and the couple 2wd are stupid expensive. Probably cheaper to find one in a yard, or buy a whole steering box with the arm attached.

  10. Put a straightedge across and measure/spacer.
  11. Do you know anyone who you could borrow a full set from just for testing?
  12. I talked to you last year, so yeah I know where it is. But, I'm not familiar with the area and seemed like I already had to walk forever to get there. I am a complainer admittingly, so you can take what I say with a grain of salt. But, I'm not going to leave and then take forever to get back in. Just wish it was a little more chill, and maybe some more shade trees 😄 Oh, and pay to get in and then have commercial, non car related vendors? You have to admit that's pretty lame.
