Hey all

I'm looking for someone who knows there way around installing beam adjusters on a split bus beam. I recently picked some up and want to throw them on my beam. Anyone who can help me with this task would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Dan [/list]

So I have my beam out and all taken apart, now I'm attempting to clean the grease out of the dang thing. Anyone out there done this before and have some suggestions for me on how to get the grease out?

Why do you want to take all the grease out? It is hard to remove it all, long rod with rags attached can pull it out.

Well Craig told me if I bring a clean beam he would help me put the adjusters in so I thought that meant cleaning out the grease. Also one of the bushings was kinda hanging out and the edge is broken. So I'm sure I need a new one.

Hey Eric I might need you to help me possibly if you have any time available if Craig can't cause he might be busy with another bus. I need this done soon for the Lind run woo hoo!!

If you're in the mood to work on suspension I'd love to get adjusters on the front of my Thing
and see about getting the back lifted as well. The last time we talked you mentioned tackling it
during the winter time. I'll make it worth your while if you're still interested. Let me know and
I'll order the parts.

Thanks in advance.

I won't have time for a couple weeks, order up the parts. How high did you want to go?

I'm thinking 2 to 4 inches. I'm working on putting together a parts list right now.
