November is almost upon us, which means that many of our northern compadres are way overdue to winterize their swimming pools. For most who like to use their things for more than one season, this is a tedious process that involves shocking it with caustic chemicals, partially draining the thing, tearing down a host of equipment, some serious scrubbing, and procuring a heavy duty cover. While most of these procedures can be managed with enough time and money, there is still the matter of what to do with the 5,000 or so gallons (that’s 18,927.06 litres for you worldly folk) of water to be pumped out.

The challenge was, since we were doing the project at home, reassembling the suspension with enough accuracy so that the old girl could make it across town to an alignment rack without destroying her brand new tires.

It was a quiet afternoon at the Supreme Suspensions fortified compound. I was taking my lunch in the billiards lounge, as usual, when my telephone rang. An old friend was on the other end of the line, a good man that I had met years ago when times were simpler.
“It’s the 4Runner,” he said with a tinge of despair. “It has a squeak. It has a leak.” Read More
Back in the shop with another install video here at Supreme Suspensions. This week we have a terrific classic: a 1994 Dodge Ram 2500!
New trucks are pretty rad and, as we’ve been finding out, lightly used ones can be just as good. The problem is that these vehicles come with a price tag and, if you have off-roading on the mind, you probably don’t want to thrash all that hard on a vehicle that’s worth north of $25,000. Or maybe you just don’t have that much to spend on your next truck, which is completely respectable, because I don’t either. Read More
