    Useful tip when installing new coil springs

    If you have a rack with spare tire in it, remove it. I wasn't thinking... Back into garage, did upgrade to coils, about to drive out realized tire in rack won't go thru door...hmm backed up to remove tire and out and about with 7" rear clearance. It's a day-off, my mind is on break... Enjoy the good laugh.

    Remember that life is not measured in the breaths you take, but rather in the moments that take your breath away.

    Glad you caught that. I have to put a rag over my intenna to hold it down when pulling in and I don't have tires on. My truck wont fit in garage anymore when tires are put on and never mind rack and spare tire when done. Hope I still can go through drive thru's.. lol
    I always take life with a grain of salt. Plus mashed potatoes and gravy!
