SMOKEYBEAR I'll save my stock bar, I have a set on new bushings for it anyway . I'll hang on to it in case the PMF bar causes lots on challenges down the road.

Anyone use the none name brands like movtech and such off rock auto for early 99s? They’re only like 5 brands for early 99 and most have been discontinued
How many miles on the PMF track bar? I have one waiting to go on, just need the time..and I was concerned long term that the heim joints would cause some chaos. Just didn't know what long term would end up being time / mile wise
Less than 12k miles. Not 100% sure on the shops diagnoses but he’s a long time family friend in a small town so not sure he’d wanna try to make money off me etc.

There were moog, movetech, and other brands in rockauto but wanna measure everything again. It appears my oem original track bar would be long enough after the new leafs settled but they bushings are 20 yrs old and man it looks like a pita to hammer/melt them out let alone find bushings hahaha

Thanks! I'll have to look into that.

I did get the oil/filter changed and got the Ol' Guy a bath. He was dirtier than I thought.
I also set off a Meguiar's Scent bomb (what I call it) inside the truck. I like the "New Car" scent. You start the truck, set the AC to recirculate and set off the scent bomb. Leave it blowing for about 15 mins. Then open up the truck for a while to let it air out. The idea is to get it to circulate through the Vents, blow all over inside. Truck smells all "New Car" now. We'll see how long it lasts.

Bart_3500 Removed, rebuilt and reinstalled the oil cooler. Most of the day but well worth it.

Got a new trans filter / pan gasket recently. Need to get some Mercon V before I do the job.
