So this past Friday, May 10th, I picked up my rack and pinion. Took the old rack out and installed this silver painted dick suck rack from Vatozone. The boy out and help too.. or should I say picked up tools a threw in the garage. So fucking angry the pump quit working so power steering job was not complete after all.

Time: Approx 3 hours

Music: Slayer station on Pandora


The following day my son convinced me to let him grade the property. Well I thought he'd fuck this one up but surprise surprise he did a great job..

So in the meantime I've had serious DR withdrawals since the site has been down.. Last night I grabbed a new pump from Vatozone. So had the kid help jack up the truck. In order to remove the pump I had to remove drivers wheel and unbolt the IBP from the lower and push shock to the side. While doing this I smashed the floor jack handle into his head which I believe was on the verge of a concussion. He mentioned he wanted to throw up.. oops my bad. So now we have power steering. Not convinced I have all the air out completely. Major pain in the dick I'd say..

I thought the dirt looked extra pretty when I stopped by to drop off those spindles! Lol I almost felt bad putting footprints down haha

You get the steering working good enough to come down to Jump Champs or what?!

I also picked up a Lincoln 250 migger about a month ago and have started to practice a little. I still suck at it lol.

Anyone purchase a craftsman 4.5" grinder before? I bought one because lowes was out of stock with the dewalt one. Anyone like or dislike it? Much better than my shitty harbor freight one.

Ok guys I need some help here..

Replaced the power steering rack because the ford one had too much shimmy. It was worn out like most women I've dated lol..

So 3 pumps later and rack from Vatozone. I now have a slight shimmy when turning side to side but not like before. Like every Ford pump it whines like a some bitch oh well.. Flushed the system a dozen of times. Yes mercon fluid in it, filter on the return line to the pump and I've gotten all the air out of the system. I did have a ton of metal in the system prior so maybe the new rack has shit in it now and I should take the rack back to exchange it for another one. Filter went on when I replaced the pump for a 3rd time.

Any thoughts besides hearing it's A Armed for the 539th and I should of used beams.. Hahah
