Front and Rear Suspension
Finally making some progress. After getting the rear end assembled, I was able to get it mounted up into the chassis. Still need to make some minor adjustments to get everything even, but at least it is mounted.
Below you can see that the front suspension is now on the chassis. Not all the Ball joints wanted to go in on their own. A little trick to that is stick the ball joints in the freezer for about an hour or two. Then see if they will go in nicely. If not then heat up the ball joint recepticales with a propaine torch then try again.
With this on I can add the steering rack and get some wheels and tires on so I can move this puppy around a bit.
Got the front suspension all buttoned up. just have the steering rack to align a bit and tighten down. Next order of business
is mounting the adapters and wheels on the chassis and make it a roller.
