Install the front and rear shocks and rear shocks from Mike

Decided that my rear was in need of a cover also with 19k miles
I copied the paper gasket and made new die , I used .062 silicone with fiberglass a std spec we cut for aircraft oil pans.
Oil was dirty and just a tap of mallet and stock cover dropped off.
I could not find my 12pt sockets so I used the allenhead bolts , not easy at the top of cover.

The Rh exhaust is removed to get the bolt out of Rh pan hard bar.

New cover holds 4qts of oil.

Waiting on the rear sway bar and going to alignment.
The mod for shifter 6 speed is great like a P car , short shift throws.

I went with the Mevotech parts mostly.
I spoke to the Development Staff there who said that their bushings were a combination of Rubber and Polyurethane. Longer lasting than Rubber. Not as hard a ride as Polyurethane.
The Labor Cost for Mevotech was much less than putting in the Poly Bushings in my area.
Dicktator loves his Poly Bushings that have been installed for quite a while.
You can't go wrong with the Bushings from Mike in AZ.
