In Topic: Just bought a 521

Today, 10:16 AM

I'm familiar with axle shims when lifting a truck to get the pinion slightly higher and lined up better with the driveshaft. Does the opposite apply for these drop blocks? Do I shim the pinion so that it's a few degrees lower?

 

I bought a cheap drop block kit, which to my surprise is extruded 6061 (not cast) but there's no draft on them. I'll be milling a 2 degree surface on the top of them today.

 

I lowered mine on 3" blocks and no shim, some do it some don't.

Smaller is better with these trucks.  I wouldn't do anything bigger than 15".


In Topic: Re-core or replace RAD?

I bought the prestone 50/50 (Target $9 a gallon) shit and poured a gallon in, ran it with the rad top off until it started running.  Turned the truck off it burped some out, I topped it off put the rad cap back on and called it a day.  Drove to the dump to drop some lumbar off and the entire time was wondering what was going to break next.
