I would love to work with some finger joint poplar.

It's not a glorious living, and I certainly am not getting rich any time soon.

Got the bilstein shocks installed today, well worth the money. The handling on the truck is drastically improved, no more body roll, corners very well, even brakes better.

I'd say if you do remove it. They might as well spring for a new one, don't want to have to pull it out again in 3 years because its leaking.

If only bosch could make an 10" axial glide thats under 60 lbs, maybe a little smaller of a profile. It'd be a great all around saw.

I know I'm only upgrading the dampening characteristics of the suspension. Springs take all the weight, shocks control their rate of compression/return.

Ok, I decided to put the money towards new shocks. Trucks sitting @ 61k so its probably needed.

For a bit more money than bags would've cost, I'll have bilstein's.

I'd like to find a good set of brad points, I'm ruling out any that start with an F though.

I think lee valley might be the best option. The wood whisperer did a review of their bits a while back.
