    It should be tight with the work you've done. Don't forget an alignment.

    Appointment Monday at 1pm with Mr. Front-End. Local specialist. Did my original R/T almost 20 years ago after installing the Hotchkis.

I’m guessing it’s also not going to high speed when truck gets to xxx degrees.
    I have that "Hollister Road" 2 spd relay system. (out of business now) that got hot and melted the relay sockets 2-3 years ago. My high speed went out also, but I think it was meant to "default" to low speed. I rebuilt the assembly with new relays and sockets. It's working fine ever since. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Hey Mike, Congrats! So, did you get "Grapejuice" with the 408 in it? And, did you get the original 360?

    Yes I got the 408. Could have got the 360 too but the logistics of getting all the extra parts from Texas to Michigan was difficult and really don't have the room to store tons of stock parts I will never use. If these 360's were VIN stamped then I would have made the extra effort to keep the 360 with the truck.

    As it went, last night got the wheels on and had the dust plate rubbing the rotor and had to take the caliper and rotor back off to straighten the plate. Tonight did some more clean up and went to take it for an evening cruise and the headlights weren't working. Fiddled with the switch and everything started working. Went for a short drive around the neighborhood to test the front-end. Nice and tight. Pissed off a bunch of neighbors with the Spintechs. Nice weather tomorrow, will be out for an extended drive.

    Is there a Hotchkis set-up on Alan’s truck? I can pull up the Hotchkis alignment specs if you need?

    Yes, full Hotchkiss, KB xbrace, and Caltracs. That would be great if you have them handy. I don't recall having them in 2000.

    You got a nice R/T. Was seriously considering it before getting Grape Juice. Ticked most of the check marks on my must have list.

    Honestly, it's more than nice. except for a few very minor flaws it looks almost new inside and out. The worst thing is the headliner sagging down. I'll be fixing that very soon. I've already swapped in one of my Kenwood bluetooth head units, changed the tail lights back to stock (for now) and cut down the sub boxes so the seats go all the way back.

    Yes the condition looked immaculate and the low mileage was a huge plus. The minuses for me were the lack drivetrain performance modifications and what it would take to get it to where I would want it to be, both in monitory and time standpoint.

    I've got a new set of EQ heads, a 4 bbl M1 and a mild cam and lifters on the shelf. I don't plan on going crazy with engine upgrades, I've got 2 other vehicles that have that covered.
