1994 Astro all shined up

I would not hesitate to go anywhere with it. :supz: =D\ DSCF2098.JPG DSCF2101.JPG =D> :cheers: Thanks fo...

It is just shocking!!!

Okay, my KYB shocks have been on for about 8-9 years & I am beginning to feel they need replaced. These shocks have been fine & trouble free, just wanted any input as to your favorite shocks & why. 1994 Astro Extended 2wd.

Thanks

Re: Railroad-grade idler arms?

can a fully-equipped machine shop craft them, given the dimensions for the whole system and alloy and hardness specifications for the subparts? a machine shop will make you whatever you like. At a cost more than the van is worth. The good thing about idler arms is they are cheap as chips and easy t...

Re: replacing front hub

WOW! that is a long time follow-up, several years. Things aren't made like they used to be for sure, 40.000 miles not bad, or good either.
Just replace it with the best and go on ahead.
thanks for the follow-up :supz:
