    Hi Guys:

    I made 5 1/2" shackles for the rear springs, and now with the 250# Afco's the truck is sitting pretty. Specialty Products Co. # 81250 camber bolts just arrived via Fed-X from Summit Racing, and I pick up my repaired ( Yes, it had a leak ) fuel tank this afternoon. Should be back on the road tomorrow, and I will let you know how it all works out.

    Cheers

    Thanks spaner but I got them ordered,probably here but I've been busy with a broken tractor axle.I appreciate the effort on the 22's but it's getting tough to do anything like that.

    So, the camber bolts worked great. Front wheels are at @ -1/2 degree camber now and the truck handles great - better than ever before. I was a bit concerned that the higher stance may affect the rear drive shaft, but it seems fine - no vibration or extra noise evident.

    The only issue with the camber bolts was that the top of the hub could not move inward in the strut ( touching ) so out came the handy mini grinder and I shaved @ 2mm off. The camber bolt was then able to do its job nicely

    Thanks again to Spanner for the recommendation

    The NAPA # for the camber bolts is 264-3641.

    Hey gang greetings from Louisiana. I just bought a Hi Jet jumbo, I believe S80, with mud tires and have an issue with the front left tire bottoming out and rubbing the wheel well when I hit bumps or inclines or make sharp turns. From what I've read so far on this blog it seems that a new 250lb coil/spring may fix it. Dishtech43 you said it was easy to change? I have basic tools... will I have to compress the spring to install it? Can you send me a link to a video tutorial?

    Also, I'm just starting with maintenance and need guidance on changing the oil & filter. Does an owner's manual for S80/82 even exist?
