Re: AmbulanceRV.com FOR SALE

Best of luck on sale... to the new owner, you've got a bunch of loyal followers who'd like the forum to stick around.

OP... I'm sorry life is getting in the way, I understand your decision far too well.

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build

Had a friend do the upper and lower ball joints... they're a major pain to do. Took it to Ford for a front end alignment...

Info found: They're 73 series, and there is a $6 adapter to make 700 series fit. Now to decide if I want to replace the front painted lights with clear 'Scene lights'.

3"x7" Light compatibility

I've got painted over Red & White +/- 3"x7" Whelen xenon strobe lights on the front fender and grill. At first glance the original '97 lights look like Whelen 700 series, but they don't have a series number on the lens. I may have to pull them if no one knows offhand, but was there a p...

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build

Very worthwhile to have it all done. Keep an eye on the pads and replace them before they are too worn and it'll be an easy job in the future.

Re: 97 Crestline's Slow camper build
