    Why do I always wait so long after shasta to give the bus a look over?? It’s like I know the driving I do at home is not even close to the Shasta driving. So “it’ll be fine” is my mind set. Shame on me haha. But this Moab trip gave me a kick in the butt to put my bus on the rack. Hopefully it’ll be ready. If not. BBOE has been purring like a pussy cat. As always 😎

     

    broken shock… that’s the knocking I’ve been hearing. Loose reduction box bolts. Classic. Oil change. Front end grease. I’ve been running on 3 brakes for a couple months too… this time I’m doing BOTH sides in the rear. Every time I just do the broken side. The other side blows out like a month later! German shit going in. Both side. It’s going to brake on a dime!

    I also decided to swap to aluminum pushrods. See if I can get some motor noise down. 🤷🏻‍♂️I’ll check head torque and check exhaust nuts while I’m up in there. Also pull the carbs off and give them a clean/look over while I’m at it. Make this a happy little sewing machine.

    Ya. Bummer about the bilstein. I love how they ride and handle.

    this is my first issue I’ve had. They did 2 Shasta’s and many other hard trips. I don’t go easy on this bus. That’s why I replaced with another bilstein. We will see! Hopefully no more issues

    I broke a billie in half and leaked out 2 others on Toyota trucks with just general truck use.  Replaced them with cheap oil filled and was much happier.

    They have a lifetime guarantee – if you want to send them back and wait, and if you have the receipt. But only if they weren’t factory installed on your vehicle.

    He got it and a bus buggy! Hahaha he needs to move some farm equipment and then he’s getting them out. Right here in Utah county somewhere… go Derek! Derek is awesome! Some kid he knew just texted him last week asking how much his grandpas 70’s vw was worth… he got a deal I’m sure😎

     

    Uncut dash. Said the floors actually look in pretty good shape. It’s been under a structure forever
