I’m glad you said the Amazon batteries are good because I am such a dumb*** I didn’t even realize I bought the bare tool only. I just ordered a 2- pack of 6 aH batteries and charger for less than one Milwaukee 4 aH and charger. I see these have 4.5 stars so hopefully they’re good.

I've had one of them not want to charge before but then you take it off and put it back on and it's good to go. Not saying they are as good as OEM but for the price they are like a sore dick, you can't beat it.

Pulled the trigger on the new wheel with controls and the correct **** spring. Trying to find someone to do the interior LED conversion for me now. One guy on insta hasn't responded in a few days so taking suggestions.

Got the nasty torn bushing replaced in the rear LCAs today and also found my driver side rear end link was broken. The Hellwig style is basically a giant threaded rod and the threads have rusted out so it no longer holds. Pretty irritated at that but luckily I had a DJM endlink on the shelf.

Also put the original Eibach springs with airlift bags back in a plumbed up the lines. These springs give nearly an inch of lift over the Belltechs with an inch spacer so I have .75-1.25" of rake now which I'm all happy about. Apparently when In motion with the belltechs even though it was dead nuts level front to rear it looked slightly tooted which is unacceptable. Gonna be nice to have the bags when towing tomorrow too, I'm going to Sam's club with a trailer to reup on a pallet of water and that **** is heavy! I think a pallet is 40+cases and usually just 15 cases in the hatch squats the rear 2 inches.

Got to Sam's club only to find out covid ruined another ththing I enjoy, buying large amounts of stuff so I don't have to buy it again for a long time because I hate shopping. Limit of 3 cases of water per member..... so dumb I dragged a trailer 40 minutes for nothing.

Oh well, the bags held good although over night they dropped from 20 to 10 which is fine to me. Truck does look like its monster trucking tho with the Eibach rear springs back in.

Bags lose pressure overnight because of the temp drop but they should rebound once it warms up. Unless they actually have a leak.

The same old leak the system had before was likely due to my harbour freight air pressure gauge. Not a big deal because they aren't necessary for empty driving and I have a 12v port and mini compressor right therein the back if I have to bump them back up.

Anyone care to guess who will win a race between my Tahoe and a 2016-2018 C300 Mercedes sedan? Not positive on the year but it appears bone stock and is driven by a very cocky millennial. If it's that year range it's a 2.0 turbo making 241 crank Hp and weighs 3,600. According to Google it does the 1/4 in 14.6.

I have no idea what the Tahoe will do but I'm gonna assume a high 13 if I do my part of course.
