Default Yukon needs air suspension when pulling

Just arrived back in Sauk Centre from Ham Lake with my new toy.
Awesome news is the transmission looks to be unharmed.
Shitty news is the forklift operator who hauled the car out of the yard to the trailer dented the drivers quarter panel more (had a slight dent before, but now it has a good crease in it) and also put the fork through a tire and possibly wrecked another rim!!!! I'm thinking about getting the yard to reimburse me for the cost of a rim at least.

Those are nice rims. Before the forklift guy, were there 3 usable wheels, or just 2? That looks like a gold mine

You didn't have the car put on the trailer correctly. Since the front end is SO heavy, you put the back on first so the heavy part of the car is on the back, causing less of a "V" effect at the hitch.

I was going to say that. Plus you have the car very far forward on the trailer as it is.

Anyways, looks good. Let me know on the parts I PMed you about the other day now that you have it. I have the cash sitting around.

Actually, I wanted the car back where it should have been, but when the lift operator first set the car on the trailer he set it with the tail of the car so far back the ramps wouldn't fold up. So I motioned for him to bring it forward more and walla!! He rammed it right up to the front stop rail slammed the car down and took off.
Air bags would still help.

As for requests I have answered very few so far. Mainly have gotten organized who has first dibs (based on request times) and today I looked the car over and will now commence the replying.
Sorry Geoff, your parts have already been claimed. :( Wish I could help you.
