    although a 2 inch drop in the rear to level it out would be easy and look nice, especially when you add the 20s.

    Took the GMC into the shop for some work. On the way to KOH the exhaust on the driver side kept getting louder. Turns out I snapped two bolts off the exhaust manifold. Problem was that they broke off in the block.
    The shop called and said the only way he can get to the back bolt is to pull the head. That just adds to much in labor to fix something on a 210K eng.
    The CEL went out for a few days so I got it past emissions and have tags on it for a while. The plan it to now just drive it till I can get something else.

    Still cheaper than a car payment.

    How critical is that back bolt? I had a jeep with the far back bolt broke and it sealed fine without it. Of course it was an aftermarket exhaust so it was likely more rigid.

    I had the lower arms replaced. Had the rotors turned.
    Truck is going to need 2 tires and the upper arms soon.
    Going to get the front window replaced. It comes with a free tint job. The truck will get a good cleaning and then when it cools off I will look at selling it. Im at a point of good money after bad and hit my max of what I want to spend.

    ... that being said, since we ARE keeping the truck, once I get the Grand Waggy squared aware, truck upgrades are next.
