Ok, thanks for the info! The tranny shifts great, but it won't go into 4th, and have tried everything on this forum AND what a tranny shop told me, and it still won't go into 4th. I figured a filter change wouldn't hurt, but he insisted that with that many miles and not knowing if it'* ever been changed or not that it most likely would slip and fail from clutch wear! I'm just confused on what to do and wheather to do it or not. LoL!

its probably not going to hurt anything but may be a waste of money at this point

Did you get the "quick struts" with the new springs? If so it really any more a chore than the back. If your using the old springs and a spring compressor, then ya, the fronts alot tougher job.

I went to a friends house and borrowed his torque wrench and decided to see if the tranny pan bolts needed to be tighened.......it leaks a little oil around the pan seal. I couldn't believe how loose they were. At 120 Inch lbs of torque, I got at least one full turn out of the bolts, some got more! I'm hoping this will help lessen the leak if not stop it all together. Oh, and the FRAM oil filter that was on this car was so old the print on the side was gone and the rubber grip was wearing off. I had to beat the hell out of it with a filter wrench for almost 5 minutes to loosen it up and even then the gasket stuck to the motor! It'* irritating me that the dealer I bought it from said it had a fresh oil change, yet the filter was easily over a year old. Oh well, at least this car is in good hands now!

Finished filling my transfer case up, removed my front bumper on the truck, and put on new body bushings under the radiator support.
