It's not the booster. All the brake booster does is assist in pushing the brake pedal. If it is malfunctioning the symptoms are hard to push brake pedal and sometimes a vacuum leak. Sounds like the...

I used a Vintage Air Gen II Compact. Very pleased so far. I did a lot of research before I bought it, Southern Air had several complaints, but they also had a lot of compliments. I bought my...

The best way to lower it would be to send your front axle to Sid at www.droppedaxles.com. I believe that the springs are the same dimensions as an F1, there are just more of them. If they are, you...

Another vote for the AOD. If you will be doing ANY highway driving you will want the overdrive. I turn about 1600 rpm at 65 mph. Truck has a 9 inch rear with 3.00 gears. It's built for cruising, not...

I used an oil pan from a fox-body Mustang in mine, just happened to have one laying around. A rear sump would probably work just as good.

There are other options than the 9R22.5 tire. There is a 245/75R22.5, and a 255/70R22.5. Both are a smaller diameter, but wider. Look for a FedEx, UPS, or RV "graveyard". You might get lucky and...
