Hello Vanners!

I had a good day today. I Found and fixed an annoying rattle that turned out to be a loose upper shock bolt.

Then I removed my rear door handle. The Thumb press decided to no longer rebound on it's own many many months ago.
Found a broken spring. So I Fab'd up another and got her working again good as new with only minimal cursing involved. Did not throw a single tool though, I'm getting better.



After this success, I installed some new prothane dust boots to replace 2 which prematurely split. One on a tie rod end, one on a 3 month old Moog draglink. A pitman arm puller made the job super easy. I also regreased all my zerks

Then I installed a new PCV valve grommett.

Not a bad day. Casa Dodge is happy.

What did you do to your Van today?

I could use some safety breaks now. All I got is a can of Bud, and a bottle of 2 buck chuck. Neither of which is very appetizing at the moment.

Nice job on the repair!

Here is a little known fact. On the GMC rear doors there is no handle or lever to open the door from the inside.
Emergency exit not required! grin

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread...

Since the wheels were off might as well grease every fitting in the front end.
Can't put the wheels back on before you wash and wax them.
Also changed the cooling system mixture to around 75% antifreeze. Topped off all the fluids.
Replaced the (inline) fuel filter. So while I was under there, Why not put a fresh coat of paint on the diff cover.
Unt I did. grin
