Boy I would say so on this forum. A seven pager here is really something unless its a build with lots of pics and and updates.

So you goin to try the full power reverse? I do believe I will.

Also, I hope your springs are easier to get loose from the forward mounts than mine. We had to drill out one side, but both were a bugger.

Yeah, I am going to leave full power reverse.

I busted my springs loose pretty easy. I had one tough one on the front. Had to use a break bar almost the whole thread. Pain.

Thanks for the reverse info Scotty and shadow.

I think someone must have boiled over the batts in mine a lot through the years. LOTS
of corrosion...to the point where the steel bolts had nearly fused themselves to the aluminum. There was little left of the steel sleeves as well. Why they dont make those parts from stainless is beyond me.
