They are changing their policies again- they now have a $100/year plan with free 3rd party hosting for non-business users.

Along iwth changing the policy, they are probably screwing wtih the settings. Mine still work because i had a paid account before ($30/year)... but i did not renew in october because my CC on file had expired- so its only a matter of time till they cut me off.

I'm moving all my seat pics over to google pics

New rear brake lines all done. They were old and the center line could hit the exhaust during travel. Shocks installed, u bolts and lowering blocks. All that’s left is to bleed the brakes and hydroboost/steering reservoir. Wheels could take up to 2 weeks more but will check in tomorrow.

Had trouble last week with my power bleeder. Will try again this weekend or maybe wife will help me out. In Sacramento now but wheels arrive at UPS facility Thursday. Will pick up Friday on way home from airport. Then gone again Monday so not sure if I’ll make much progress this weekend.

Picked up my wheels tonight. Still need to bleed the brakes before I can install them and set ride height. I fly out again Monday morning so I may have to wait. no

Got the wheels test fit tonight. Sigh of relief when the rears cleared on both sides without issue! Here are teaser pics. until I get the brakes bled I can't move it out for a better picture. The rear sits perfect I think. I'll probably raise the front just a tad to improve ground clearance and end up with just the slightest rake.  Will then run down and get an alignment right away as I can tell just by looking there is positive castor.  I think I'm going to be pretty happy with them and glad I went with 18"s.  furious

I know! Shoulda bought convos. If only it weren't so difficult to clean out all the little crevices on those wheels, Id have them on everything! wink

Here they are.  Brought the front up a tad.  Bled the brakes twice but still seem soft.. Guess I'll have to go for round three.

Tried to get it aligned today and they couldn’t get the sensors on the rear wheels because of how low it is... no one does just front wheel alignment anymore. Found a place that thinks their new equipment will fit if I put some narrower roller wheels I have stored in the barn on it. I’ve already worn my front tires down a bit irregularaly due to the camber. Will be running the old front tires now to the alignment shop next week when they can fit me in.

There used to be a place in Kirkland that specialized in hot rods, but I cannot remember what the name was.

i think kevin had and probably still has his fast trax alignment tool- i borrowed it and used it to align my olds years back. Its very simple to do if you have a level work area.
My tires wore nice and even after 6 years and a lot of miles.

You could try Truline in Bellevue (they also have a place in Seattle as well). I've taken my Chevelle there (Bellevue) for an alignment. They're a little pricey but do a great job.

I sent pics yesterday to Truline and haven't heard back. I did touch base with a place called clarkes in Kirkland that said they can just mock up the rear sensors square and then adjust the fronts. No one else seems willing to do that.
