    the tbar trick slams you to the ground with the bolts loosened and with the bolts tightened youll have about 1" of suspension travel if your lucky. if you do it this way you can have more adjustment and you can still get an alignment/have a somewhat smooth ride

    D'oh!! Well, if you can find one locally, that'd be sweet. I don't want to hassle you, though. I really can't give up my x-member at the moment (I'm sure you've seen the news about Colorado's weather), my other car doesn't do snow. :) It really depends on if you have the time and conviction to find another x-member. If not, I'll have to wait till summer to take the one off of my truck..

    Yeah Primo, if you can find one around for me, and drill it out, that'd be sweet. I can probably send my crossmember as a core after I recieve the new one. I'll keep in touch.

    hey primo- nice job with the how-to :bigthumb:
    I tried getting my bars out the other day & it was not happenin. I soaked the crap out of them at both ends with pb blaster about a week before and even tried the torch & then pounding the shit out of them. All I ended up doing was destroying 3 chisels and bashing the jesus out of my one hand with the sledgehammer about 4 times.

    Any thoughts? thanx
    :confused:
    at the end of a hard day, i just wanna kick back and smoke some crack.
