Changed the oil and Seafoamed for the first time. Quite a lot of smoke and now it feels a lot more responsive.

make sure you run something like lucas threw the engine, seafoam is very harsh and will dry out seals and what not.


and i started to remove my lateral links and trailing arms to put in my adjustable ones. so far sorta good...

Sea foam is fine, run the oil treatment in your next oil change.

i like seafoam, i think its a great product. im just saying it is a harsh solvent. granted it is 100% petroleum, but its basically rubbing alcohol, a strong solvent, and diesel. it'll knock **** out of your engine. but its not going to lubricate anything.

Get a quart of Lucas oil, on your next oil change, buy however many quarts of what ever oil you use -1. i.e. 5 quarts is what your car needs, buy 4 quarts and 1 quart Lucas. Add 4 quarts oil then one Lucas to your car. Oil change done

Oh and today I installed 2 Pioneer speakers in the back deck and moved the ones that were there to the doors. No more rattle and it only cost me $5 for the pair at a yard sale.

Another weekend, another trip to Lubbock for some e85. Winds and dust on the way out were killer, motivation to take the front bumper off tomorrow and do a cleaning on the air filter. Also time to take the fun rims/rubber off and put the all season rubber/stock rims back on.
