finished everything up today for the most part. of course i got rained on while doing so...i thought it never rained in AZ...
everything went back together fairly smoothly. of course, let the car back down on its own weight and realized i didn't need to reindex the torsions, sits way too high as you can see in the pictures. so i'll go back down a spline to where it was before and see how it is. should be perfect. other than that it rides nice, the camber should be a lot less once its sitting lower.

It looks real good. To bad you have to do all the reindexing. Just be careful and use a safety chain so it cant get away form you. Let us see it when she is setting back down.

i bought the parts and kinda pieced it together. got the arms, bushings, bearings and seals from a friend who bought a car and the parts came with said car. the axles and spacers for the stub axles were purchased from Tim at Go Go Performance in Cave Creek. Everything else was already on the car.

The arms gave your car some rear legs Grass Hopper...Looks good.


I know with my car the rear tires would get into the fenders. I had to remove them when I went off roading. I now have High body mount fenders on the car no vs the lower mount fendars.

yeah we'll see what mine do. i think now that changed the way they fit and form to the body i should be okay. i might also rotate them forward towards the nerf bars so that they offer a little bit more protection to the side of the body. but if i rip one off i'll figure something different out.

finally got some new axles. after breaking 3 cvs in 2 months i was kinda over the whole cv thing. so these are what were installed instead:





also made some adjustable clevices and added new limit straps.

the new axles fit 930 flanges, so if i happen to come across a good deal on 930s and axles, i might pick some up, but for now these are gonna work.

also got some new harnesses for christmas. 3 inch shoulders with sewn in pads, 3 inch laps, and anti-submarine belts.
