Having my Sunfire disappear and the Dodge pulled of the road by the popo, I decided my next vehicle would be a combination of the two. So I bought an 81 ChevOlds (used to be diesel, has a gas Olds 350 in it now) 1/2 ton pickup. The vent window on the drivers side needs to be replaced along with the seal, how hard is that to do and how do I do it? Also, I'd like to upgrade to a 3/4 ton rear at some point (and obviously I'll need the springs and front hubs too), is it all basically bolt-in?

I'm not a drunkaholic, occifer...

Vent window is easy, take out couple of screws on top of door, remove door panel, I believe there is a bolt holding the glass run too.

14 bolt rears are a dime/dozen. Just stay away from Vans, I think the spring perches are mounted further/closer to the wheels.
