Reply to JONATHAN's Post: do you know where i could get a manual that shows me where all these parts go or pictures thanks
i would buy the factory service manual from Helm....its a little pricey ($75.00) but the most complete source of repair info about the truck

the autozone online repair manual gives you basic pictures but i don't know if it will be specific enough
