some new stuff to report

well I went and tried to get a alignment and they told me My inner right tie rod end is messed up. and my ball joints have seen better days.

SO! I order two new inner tie rod ends off of rock-auto.

I found a site that sells smoke covers for cheaper than 50, so I picked those up too, But then I also figured if Im getting blackouts I should upgrade my lights.

I pop online and find some nice high wattage 100/80 bulbs, but then I figure I'll start melting things without a harness upgrade...

SOOOO, I pop on ebay and get a harness for 14 bucks.

so from my whole little bought I eneded up with:

New front upper control arm/ball joints,
New high wattage lights,
upgraded wiring harness,
smoke covers,
and new alignment....


that is when everything comes in the mail and I get it all put on.

Oh yeah, one of my fog light bulbs died... so Off to autozone I went... They did use 55w H3's.... so naturally I got the 100w osram bulbs.....

All I got to say is DAM!!!!!! Bright .... I had to adjust them down as to not blind anyone!!

shocks are shocks

in my personal experiance shocks are shocks the only time i've noticed a differance is lifted vehicles and lowerd vehicles if yours is stock then a shock is a shock in my opinion

sorry about the spelling in in a hurry
