    Got the Baja all back together yesterday evening. Drove great, all nice and tight up front again.

    Going to order up a set of these to help the front end survive a little longer this time.

    Hey Pat it is just possible that I have a new set of those stashed in one of my boxes. I’ll try to check today or tomorrow.

    So Pat, this is what I have. Looks  kind of like the pictures in your post ?  Got these a couple of years ago when I was thinking about making a mount to bolt a VW beam on the Tri Vator, then decided I didn’t have time to work on it.001002003

    Happens because we HALL ASS!!!!!

    Hauling ass and lock up the breaks for a wash you don’t see coming. Compress the front suspension, u slide into it and which ever L/R hits first takes most of the abuse. Do that a few times things start to bend then one more bad hit finishes it off.

    This beam was bent back on both sides. Then broke from a hard hit on the right side.

    Picked up a set of beam stiffners from Alykat, thank you Sr., that will be going on this week.

    Started rubbing on the front end last night. Looks like it took a digger up front at some point.  Pushed and welded up cracks on the pass side last night. 8D00752A-CEE3-4F51-A746-55AB7CF34D5FAB5D0B03-1085-4FDB-BE87-47289CD7889DA0F1BF9A-C742-4D7D-9CA7-8933481BA778image

    Looks like a good start. Is that the worst damage ?

    To be determined. It will get front discs and a 2” narrowed beam.

    Yeah. That’s the worst damage. Will require some rust repair as well. D7D06DCC-7599-45D3-B17A-23339E6147F41FE2E0BA-9655-4B91-A193-83551FA46B7CAA02DAD9-5D36-4C38-A875-C061CCA2167A39A99D91-0080-4D7E-A0B6-B71B3AE23087
