here are those pics, I am putting them in order, but I am too lazy to do a write up, and the pictures of the installation process aren't the greatest.

boxes waiting to be opened

up in the air

all the parts laid out

my POS transmission waiting to be rebuilt

this is the reason why my 4x4 failed. you could pull on one end, and you could hear it was separated.

I hit a ditch really hard a couple days ago, and I think they cracked the crossmember that holds the torsion bars. we just welded it. I hope it holds.

completely disassembled

I painted my a-arms, they look brand new.

not all the pics, I can only use 20, I probably won't get to drive it until next weekend though cause of the tranny, it it going to be the longest week of my lift. enjoy the pics and leave me your opinion.

Pure Beef.:head:

Is that a 99 OBS? I bet it's killing you to not be able to drive it, I don't think I would be able to stand that. Looks good though!

s'nuff said lol. yeah I wish it was a 99, it is a 91. what made you think it was a 99? oh and yeah, it really sucks seeing it lifted, but it will be more than a week before I can drive it.

you got that right, and it makes it even more painful to get on these forumswith everyone telling me how they feel about it, but I can't even drive it. I am so pissed:pissed: but, I guess it is better that it went out before I drove it with the lift, so that my parents know I wasn't hot rodding it off road.

Wow, I love the wheels and tires. What size are the tires? Never heard of them. Are they expensive?

It looks great mang. Now you have to gear it and ditch the G80 in your rear axle.

I don't think I even have a g80:think: but yeah I will regear to 4.56 as soon as I can afford it. and to whoever asked, the tires are 315/75/16 and I paid like 213 per tire and the 16x10 wheels were 146 each
