Got home about an hour ago. Car rode great. No more weird noises/vibrations/random bangs from the back anymore. And holy shitsnacks, those Gabriel Ultra's are awesome! Car just glides down the road now. It's like night and day. Thanks to Steve, Matt, and Al for helping me with the U-Joint. Oh, and Brian for his magical toolbox of parts Laughing And Chris for hosting Mod Day today Arrow

Yeah, thanks Chris! That shop was awesome! Thanks a ton for hosting it. I had a great time, even though I got my ass kicked by the illwood all day! Wink

Who'da thunk it'd be me and Justin turning the wrenches today? Razz



I know there were some pics being taken, but I snapped a few...

Here's the spring comparison between the stock Caddy springs and the Magical Moogs.




And the stock caddy rears and the Eibachs.


I saw the height difference and was like, "EHRMEGERD! I made a HUGE mistake!"

But I didn't. I so didn't.




Car rides awesome now! No more float! Love those Gabriel Ultras! And before, the thing leaned like a mo-fo in the smallest of corners, now it easily overdrives the tires. LOL! Very Happy

Thanks again for hosting, Chris! And thanks to Al who begrudgingly offered some assistance when I needed it. Wink

It was good seeing everyone. I wish I'd had more time to talk, but I was stuck being busy all day! LOL!

Yeah Tim, a bit bittersweet. But you'll be better off where you're heading and there are some great guys down there, too. Best of luck and stay in touch!

That's too funny, Al. Wink But this rides and handles MUCH better than the slut did! Wink

And these springs are so stiff, we didn't even have to worry about cutting the bumpstops. It doesn't even bottom out on the whooptydoos on the highway at 80mph. Wink

Thanks again, Chris! I had a great time myself. It was good seeing a lot of the guys and I met Bill (8bud) for the first tine today.

I hope to do it again soon.

I'll post pics tomorrow of Justin actually working.

Oh yeah, and this sweet 70 DeVille showed up at one point, too! The color of money, go figure.





That thing was absolutely gorgeous! Nice guy, too.

I had a great time too. I wish I could have made it there earlier but it wasn't a total bust. Thanks for having everyone Chris.

Tim, hopefully we can scrape a few people together at least and take a ride down your way before you head to FL. I think that would be a good time, maybe head out to grab a bite or whatever, etc. etc.

Here's some pics I took, that was about all I did all day except for helping Mr. Crovo for a blip of a nanosecond, lol.




Immaculate 1970 Coupe deVille ragtop that showed up, this thing was outrageous.

MOAR PIX!


Mr. Crovo seen with an embarrassed individual who did not want to give his name
















You can't see it in the picture but Bill was tuning his upright bass with a plastic skull on the end of it here.

Hey, I used 6 different wrenchs today.

With Chris' help I did an alignment on the 9C1.

Good to see and meet everyone yesterday. I guess Stickney must have snuck out when he heard I was on my way. Laughing

Crovo. He usually does an order for shirts when we plan a round up. I'm sure he's got a few. They might even have someone else's name on them!
