i broke down the spring packs today, i took 2 out of the front (toyota rears) over load and shortest spring. the 63" chevy springs came with a overload, dropped it. now i need to flex it and check it out. it looks like steering will clear with no problem. i don't have a fork lift and my floor jacks don't go high enough. any thoughts :icon_confused:

Truck is coming along nicely. Can't wait to see more, hopefully your recovery is quick and easy.

11 days after back surgery and i can lift 20# max. i felt good and went out to the shop today. thanks to my wife for helping me move parts around. i think the hood is finished (maybe), and the core support should be done saturday. then take it all back apart again.

still working under the 20# max weight limit I managed to finish installing the 3 core radiator out of the 76 f150, and the modified core support. I also started working on seat mounts for the honda seats they will work but I wish I would have done my homework on the seats before I scrapped the old bases. I would be running explorer seats.
