I have been on this site awhile an forgot to get my ride up here so here we go. It is a 91 LS with the 2.8 V-6 been in the family awhile my grandparents bought in 96 or so and gave it to my parents around 2000 and I got it in 2009 so this car has a lot of memories in it. So here are some pics of the first couple times I took it out still completely stock.

Got some shocks from a buddy the other day and got them on. Older never used Trailmasters. They really cleaned up the ride over the stock shocks.

Decided I hate post style shocks and will most likely be doing a conversion if not a relocation of my shocks with the lift. The nut on top of the first shock I did was stuck so bad I broke the top part of the post off that you use to hold the post in place trying to loosen it up. I ended up using almost half a bottle of freeze off and a chain wrench on the body of the shock to get the top nuts off. You can still see the freeze off on the ground the next morning in the pics of the new shocks.

These shocks are a stock +1 suggested length (13.5" - 23") so I am hopping they will work after my lift. When the truck is siting there they are maybe a little over 1/4 of the way out so I think they have plenty of room to extend out, if anything I think it would be more likely to bottom them out then over extend them.

Final got my rear axles done. Got it done at Bills Englewood Driveshaft just outside Denver. Drop it off on a Monday and they had it ready for me Thursday but I couldn't get down to grab it till last Monday. We decided to keep a two piece but really beef it up. I wanted to keep my ground clearance and protect the shafts as much as I could. I am so happy with the results and can't wait to get my new shackles and shims and finish lifting this thing. Reinstall was easy and everything went on perfect.

The main upgrade is where the two shafts meet, I needed/ wanted a system that could handle the increased angles with my lift. They replaced all the u- joints and carrier bearing and filled the carrier bearing with better lube that will last longer and hold the front shaft in place better eliminating the vibration I was getting off the line.

Now I can get my longer shackles for my leaf packs without worrying about busting my wornout drive line. I am also putting on 4* steel shims to get the rear axle and shaft to meet straighter.

He reused the Isuzu shafts because they are plenty strong.
