hey this looks neat, do you think the airbags would give you better conering ability over the stock suspension? ...about how much weight is being lost when switching over?

If i were to short gm, i'd rather try for monday....i don't like the weekend waiting games but i am quite doubtfull that there will be a good rebound after this drop, i think people are slowly losing faith in a big comeback from gm lets say if gm does eat it a...

Update: good and bad

I also installed my old IAC valve after just cleaning it off and now the idle doesn't jump everywhere, so i'm pretty sure that will get rid of the stalling at idle problem, in f...

Update:

...well it looks like i'm fixing this thing just in time, today i've been driving my broken truck around getting parts for it, and today it stalled 3 times while waiting at lights! ...it's stalled at a light before, about a month ago, but that seemed quite random, never has it stalled 3 times in one...

...well, considering that i only have to take one day a year to fix something on my gm truck and then just change the oil and clean it....i would say that its a pretty reliable, especially counting that its 14 years old.
