    I’ve seen people use tree rivets with a little silicone or RTV to plug holes as well. They are low profile.

    I supported the frame with jack stands and then put a floor jack under the wheel to adjust that side of the axle up or down as needed. BTW I felt zero difference as far as vibrations or anything else with the poly bushings.

    I don’t believe it does.

    I've got the mag-hytec on the Silverado, it's beast with a magnetic dipstick, lol, I had bought it to put on my previous nbs Yukon but it's so big it wouldn't fit, so it went right on the pickup.

    Hmmm. That would end up looking the exact same as what I had planned but without the set screws underneath. I like this. Thanks for the idea!

    7D468214-B793-4FDA-8494-E273294C141A.jpeg Forgot to post a picture at the time but the catch can for my 07 arrived. $25 on amazon doesnt seem too bad! Will install it once the new engine is in.

    Excuse the Ford steering wheel- borrowing parents expidition while tahoe is down. Its getting new engine installed wednesday-friday next week.

    on my old s10 i put poly on the front and rear sways and the LCAs. Litte bumps felt more harsh but big bumps felt more smooth. For sure made it feel better during spirited drives.
