    I didn't. I had to work on my step-brother's 223,000 mile GMC Jimmy. That thing was all kinds of messed up.
    I was shy of doing a whole damn front-end rebuild on it. The only things I didn't replace were the lower control arms, steering gearbox, and pitman arm. Everything else was replaced.

    Oh yeah, I also did the plugs, wires, water pump, and rebuilt the distributor.

    Also, Michele (the girlfriend) and I got the 'rona, and not the Mexican beer. She got it from her job and I got it from her. The media is making it into this insanely deadly disease, when it totally isn't.

    What were my symptoms you ask? I couldn't taste or smell for 12 days.

    It's because despite me being "overweight" (apparently I should be like 215lbs if I'm 6'0", not 265lbs), I'm very healthy and have a great immune system. Genetics I guess.

    If you need any hop-up parts, look up VForce John. He's from up my way and he only works on those engines.
