Wash it please

The car took about 90 minutes with a hose, that's on top of the loose parts (spare, jack/ coilover/ driveshaft in this case) - and it's still not really clean. I bet a power washer would save 25% of that time. Maybe. Still worth it.

It takes some time and dedication to clean these things up!


Erik, you should see the bad parts of the yard... :puke:

Cora and I power washed my truck and her old t 18 and dana 300 in the driveway yesterday and that made a huge mess.
She was covered in black grease freckles...grass six right now.

I'm not so excited about mud racing.

Are all 4 shocks on this beast the same?

Profender 14x2 remote resi with stock valving?

Planning to put 2 spares on the shelf.

I need to take a very close look at the eyes and shaft on the shock I didn't break. The one I broke the body on I also bent the shaft. Eyes look OK at a glance but also need a very close look for and bend or cracks. All 4 eyes definitely bottomed hard on the shock tabs.

jeff may have some parts left, but most of it was hosed.  Ryan has a large factory order request pending- might be a good idea to let him know soon.  we requested spare parts and shocks for both cars for the season.  i also have 2 NIB 16" 2.5's


note your shock mounts are for SWAYS and every other shock manf known to man and you have to trim down brand new eyes to fit- easy.

Those aren't drop-in misalignment spacers? Figured I was careful not to drop parts for no reason.

Hopefully ryan gets my text when he's back from china. Sent it while we're were NB from Rausch.
