Thanks for the pics, assures me that I can grease them from the outside.

You're absolutely correct in that I did consider installing the zerk fitting on the inside. However, once I started doing the installation, I realized I can get to all of them easily with my grease gun this way.

What time should I come over......do I need to bring any tools?
Well, it's like this. We expect another 2-4" of snow again tonite. That way it's going, I won't get to this project until we get a heat wave.

I do have all the tools, so just bring yourself and tell me what type of 'cooling off" drink you like.

Judging by the weather up there I think equal parts, Brandy, Honey & Hot water with a squeeze of lemon might be a good start.....

Keep warm, stay safe.

One of the better upgrades you can do as we all know the wear on the originals. Factory just does not want to use quality.
Piece of mind knowing what you are riding on after you replace.
I might have posted this before but I also did a few upgrades. Just have not got to the disk breaks yet.

Don't put your shovel away, they are saying you've got another round coming this weekend.

Steve, did you add the shocks at the same time you did the other components on the suspension, or was it a two step process? Reason I ask is I wondered if you could tell much difference with the shocks.

Yes, I did the shocks about 3 months later and it made a huge difference. We can leave most everything on the counters now and don't even move.

Ummm. I didn't raise my hand. I NEVER have a problem. Everything always goes as planned and I never even break a nail.

I have not seen these Biggles. I really like this and I am absolutely going to install them. I'm glad you posted this.
I am also installing airbags on my rear suspension on my truck. I was going to install helper springs but I think I like the airbag idea better. But it's a trial and error thing. We will see.
