Over the last week, I have replaced the front brakes, rotors and pads, hub seals, axle seals, wiper blades, diff service, replaced the lug nut I lost, and washed it.

sway bar end link

I worked on my new fron end today. But I also had a question, I put a dana 60 rear in my '79 supercab 4x4 and it came with a sway bar. I need the sway bar end links for it, any ideas on where to get them?

Last weekend I did front and rear brakes, replaced the headlight switch, changed the fuel filter, installed sway bars from an 88 F-150, and put on my new wheels and tires.

Removed a Jet Preformance chip that came with the truck. 92 Oct. wasn't worth the gains with the current gas prices. Also installed a new skid plate, front sway bar bushings and passenger side drag link. Trying to get it in the shop tomorrow for a wheel alignment.

The weekend before last I installed an electric fan out of a 98 Town Car. I wired it using a Fiero 185 degree temperature switch, 75 amp Bosch fan relay, 80 amp inline fuse, and a 40 amp Bosch relay that closes to a secondary ground to trigger the 75 amp relay when the A/C kicks on. Got the fan and a brand new OEM radiator on Ebay for a total of $105 including shipping. Works like a charm, the truck is worlds quieter, and there's a definite seat of the pants improvement in performance. Early returns show about a 2 mpg gain.

Been a while for this thread so I'll start it up again.
First off, I put New tires on my 96 Eddie. BFG Radial T/A's 255/70/15. Then off to NYS Inspection. FAILED Emmision. I had no CEL but the code was there. Problem with the Evap purge control. This led to a new PCM. All is good now.

Now I will post pics later but I have just replaced the cap on my 96 with a Truxedo Tonneau. The truck looks as good as ever. With this new look I have treated her to a fresh coat of wax.
