    I agree that the old shocks look OE. Mine were exactly the same when I changed mine.

    You do know that this kind of work raises one's blood pressure, right? LOL

    Not at all! I sat on my ass and paid my buddy to do it. Lol.

    ETA: For me, if I had a lift, I’d be all about doing this repair, but you won’t catch me trying to do this stuff down on the ground. No more of that.

    I decided to wait and see if you’re happy. I read the reviews on them breaking or slipping so you’re the tester Sam.;)

    Feels nice, huh? That one-finger adjustment is slick. Go see if it'll crack an oxygen sensor loose

    @Tonyrodz :p

    Finally put the vinyl on the bowtie I've had since June. Got some new black plate frames - they're silicone. Not sure how much I like them.

    Debadged the rear. Chevrolet emblem came off fairly easy, but that bowtie/tahoe was a bitch. So much thick adhesive. I took some swirl mark remover to the spots but it'll need more work. Gotta get a dual action polisher, then I'll do a paint correction on the whole thing and detail it.

    Oh yeah, was shampooing the rear and noticed how easy the trim of the captain's chairs came out and before I knew it, both were out completely. This is a work in progress. I guess I didn't realize how nasty it was. Going to take a while. Right now just soaking/brushing with Folex. I think it's either coffee or Coke from my kiddo years ago. Any other suggestions?

    I put newer z71 midnight edition wheels on my 05 Yukon, not in love with it but it’s better then it was.
