I think he meant he was saying too much nice stuff about the ROAM kit and was referring to that as arse kissing. I don't think he meant you were kissing his arse. My .02 - unless I read it wrong.

You read it right. Jim is a really good friend of mine and the nicest guy around.....there is nothing to worry about here, other than I was starting to pucker up again .....damn you D90 Source.

You won't be disapointed when they arrive . I just got finished rebuilding the brakes on a 73 series, new drums new master wheel cylinders shoes etc. took it out for a test drive and couldn't figure out what was wrong with this thing. the brakes just didn't feel right. Well after a 15k mile trip in the 109 fully loaded I realized there is nothing wrong with the brakes on the 88 at all they just don't compare to the ROAMS.

Happy stopping

Ed, do you run the stock U-jointed front shafts or can you upgrade to CVs?
