    harleyNow your cooking with oil, good job, when you make the fropnt mount raise the nose cone just off the adjuster maybe 1/16 or what you can but looks to me you are following what I said.  Keep it up, Won the overall and 1600 championship with this car  a couple of years ago and 15000 dollars now its one of our pre run play cars

    More cool pics & stories please Dave!!!!

    Bit more progress yesterday…Riley chopped out two little section we needed to modify the rear trans mount.
    They fill the gap where the trans will bolt to the mount.E90C1D1B-1C1B-42F9-ACB6-E03DFBC892D6B8AC3DF7-6341-4422-AFF7-3E60CB2F2A71188DB021-72BA-4824-BB3A-A3420AD4B6CA

    I welded all the cut seams and filled the gaps for CV clearance on the frame horns.C962F892-65E8-4BA8-8FAF-44B47C8FCAAC4C8C4A3D-6C52-4B0A-8BB8-8B9625C0887E6CCF6184-E4DB-40CF-96D7-F0B656021C9F

    We will build it if it comes.

    Nice work father and son.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    So sinking it will lower the CV angle with weight on the suspension and also more droop for suspension travel/ bump absorption?  I like all these insider tricks, been out shopping for a bug lately because you guys have given me the baja itch… even if its just a daily driver wanna be haha

    Dave… do you make any mods to the trailing arm mounts? Any other pan mods you would do before putting the body on?

    yes, you will need to figure what arms and pivots to install. I recomend Lothringer arms and his pivots, micro stub arms. I run them on all my cars with no issues. Dont cut the pivots out till you decide what arms you will use, let me know when you decide but you can do ther things like body cage etc before you do the rear

    Is Lothinger the same as Fodrill?

    What pivots should I go with?

    you are doing well. where you bought your arms ask for the pivots that go to it. you will want your cv joints 19 1/4 axles and 930 4130 boot flanges you will need the spring plates use 4130 sway away swing axle plates that you cut down to fit, 27 degrees on the axle angle and i put mine at 90 degrees at the very bottom so at ride hight you will have negative camber. you will weld the pivot nut the the pivot and rotating up ot down you will see the wheel camber and negative camber. The entire rear must be together to do it right. Dont just stick the pivots in their, you will trim the old one out. Its work but the way to do it. Trim the front mount to fit with the 1 inch tubes I mentioned before. Looks like you have spent some good money, Glad I could change your course before you went to far. 951 696 0219 is my number if you have questions while working on it but its looking 10,000 percent better now that you have done it correctly for 51600

    Suspension stops you will cut right behind the bottom front hole leaving it there eliminating the bottom back hole all the way back then when you kinda figure where or I should say hoe far down your spring plat drops will give you a idea what kind of tear drop plate to weld on there and when you have the travel figured out buy solid square stock that you can weld on for your stop then you will gusset the plat with 1in to the torsion housing if you understand what I mean. You are doing great Pat

    get your pivots from Fodrill. any parts you may need call Dezz at Nexgen off road  at 951 365 1408 he will give a good deal and can get you most anything you need. I am a big supporter of his and he supports and sponsors my sons. and he ships world wide. Real good guy to deal with but being most aftermarket arms have different degree pivots from each other best get the pivots from where you got the rear arms from
