The 5 day weekend starts on Thursday for me.  :cheers:  Heading to a 3 day car show in Wildwood, NJ with a few other Mopars.  On Monday while heading home we are stopping at Atco Raceway for an all Mopar track rental.  Get to beat on our cars all day long.  It's 10 - 15 cars and 6 hours of non stop fun....... as long as nothing breaks.   :lol:

Finally got my rear springs installed! :woohoo: Just mopar xhd's, car sits a little higher in the back, around 3/4". Probably lose that in sag, but my tire rubbing problem is gone because of the higher spring rate. Back end feels a lot better than with the OE 318 springs that were on there.

And I bought another A833OD for a hundred bucks. Needed another bearing retainer since the one I had on my other A833OD was broken, and for an extra 40 bucks I figured the spare parts will be more than worth it.  :clapping:
