    Started fixing my rear suspension. 23 degrees was too much for the 100mm CV joints. The inner boot busted, and the flange leaked gear oil into the CV grease…making a nice slurry to cover everything.

    I bought empi porsche 930 stuff to replace, but found the flange diameter is going to require some clearance of the frame horns and trailing arms.

    Well worth the effort Franz, and apparently a MUST for your current situation. Were the EMPI 930s much more in cost compared to a LoBro Type-1 CV?

    I got the 930 stuff installed. 17 1/2″ axles. The diameter just barely clears the frame horns.

    I need to move my shock location. See how the arms are modified with the lower shock mount moved forward to provide frame cradle clearance? The leverage ratio is bad, and the bus is bouncy.

    I keep wondering when Franz and Melissa are going to take this on a real road trip campout??  Do you have a trip planned or in mind?  Honey moon trip to the Hot Springs or something??

    Today I have ripped out the engine and fuel tank to weld in some crazy upper shock mounts.

    Thanks dude.

    I spent yesterday fabing and painting these upper shock mounts. I cut slits in the gas tank support shelf to drop them through and weld directly to the frame.
