Alaskan Suspension....

Hey guys,

Haven't posted in quite a long time...mainly because my truck doesn't break!

I know there are a couple of ALASKAN GUYS on here so this is mainly directed to them, but, ANY and ALL info is greatly appreciated.

I have Walker Evans Racing struts...twin external reservoir up front, and single strut in the rear. Who up here can re-build/re-valve these mad hoggs?!

I live in Fairbanks Alaska, I've called around asking (Diesel Doctor, Napa, Norther Power Sports) and nobody seems to know....here's some pics...
Again, any and all help is encouraged. Also, looking at redoing the rear axle seals on the beast....any tips??

^What he said.

on a side note, I worked at the Greens Creek mine on Admiralty for 2 months last year before being laid off from my second job in 8 months last year. Fortunately I have the first back now. I think I would have actually enjoyed AK if I wasn't working 14 hr days, 30 days straight.

Right...right....

Thanks guys, pretty much what I figured. Thats the ONLY thing that buggs me about AK. Not to many performance or hot rod shops ya' know....Oh well, looks like I'll just have to pay for shipping ONTOP of getting them serviced, damn.

Thanks again all.
