    Pretty quiet here,...I'll bet some of you are racing. How are y'all doing at the tracks, and anybody driving their cars? Mine's getting a break from the daily commute while I repair my rear valance (where the Saturn ended it's life), and begin my full rebuild of the factory suspension front and rear. I've found some 143# spring rate, 5 leaf, OER springs for the rear, and I'll probably go with new coils for an A/C car unless I can figure out how to go to a slightly stiffer coil. That will require some time on the suspension forum. Any of you have thoughts on my rebuild of the A arms? Recommendations?
    Been busy preparing for, and showing, FRANKENTRUCK at the Summerfest in the Rockies at Loveland, CO last Saturday. Great fun and the weather was perfect! Lots of beautiful cars and trucks.
    What have y'all been up to?
    Todd.

    Hey A-B and All, hope summer is going well for everyone. A-B, good luck with the suspension rebuild. I'm in the same boat, need to get my factory steering and front suspension treated and back together. If you have any tips along the way let me know. I'm going to replace ball joints but plan to put the stock springs and arms back in. Been reading where you really can't torque things down until its off the jack stands though....should be interesting as everything is on this car.

    Went to Lake McConaughy last week so it's time to get back to work and into the shop! Here's what I accomplished recently.

    Thought about replacing my oil pan with a new one, but didn't want to mess with raising the engine, etc. So a little GM Blue did the trick:
