I found both front and rear swaybar bushing kits so as soon as they come in I'll get them installed.. I was able to get out and run the truck Saturday. She handles the curves a lot better than before.. Sunday I got her out to head to the grocery store. Heard a wierd noise about the time the engine idled down going into closed loop. Everything seemed fine. Came out of the store only to find green fluid running out from under her. The lower radiator hose popped.. It was over 12 years old so I can't complain too much about it.. I didn't replace either hose.. Did put new heater hoses on though... lucky for me I was only 1.5 miles from home and was able to get her home under her own power.

Not positive but I think the bolt/nut where the steering link bolts to the pitman arm is rubbing the lower rad hose???? I'll have to check it more closely this weekend...

So I got the BII urathane bushings in 1" flavor... Found out that the bar is actually a 3/4.. so back to the other salvage yard Saturday... I hope whoever said the 89-90 BII has 1" is right and it still has it on there..

Easy way to verify is take a 1" wrench and a wire brush with you. Clean the dirt off and see how the wrench fits.
