hello from new york

Post by alwaysstuck »

well, I bought a 2005 astrovan from a friend who insisted these are good trucks, and ive heard this from a number of others who also own an astro.

I do have some questions, that are driving me nuts, and hope to remedy them in this forum.

thank you

The 2003 to 2005 Astro are great. They have rear disc brakes, and 6 lug 16 inch wheels like the Tahoe. They are great vans even in stock OEM form.

I have a 2003 AWD Astro with 2" lift and lots of mods.


I finally get the smurf thing
