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.

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!
Now back to your regularly scheduled thread...
You know how it goes, once ya start working on the van ya can't stop!
Today I installed a new set of Wagner ceramic brake pads. So I had to paint the calipers, dust shield and A arms.
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.
