    We had fun with Rusty’s baja yesterday, it left it’s mark. πŸ™‚20190413_165923[1]

    He threw me a monkey wrench with the 28mm torsion bars, been a long time since I indexed a pair of those. First time we set it down the suspension wouldn’t even move. Second time was a charm tho, came out right. That ass end is not going to sag! Ditched the coilovers and sent him home with no rear shocks.

    Can’t just bolt an early beam in – linkpin is completely different with the tubes closer together. You’d need to swap the whole panhead πŸ˜…

    There are adapters available to bolt a link beam to a ball pan, but they push the beam ahead by the thickness of the adapter. Primarily intended for buggies, but might not be a big issue with a Baja.

    Your ball joint front end will be fine, you’re not racing the baja in it.

    Yank that fucker out and get some adjusters so we can weld ’em in!

    All it need to be faster is some lighting bolt across the doors. I’ll hook up some sweet graphics the next time it’s here. Maybe.

    OK Rusty, I got it, bring the baja/jungle gym over for next weekend. We’ll slam a zebra paint job on it…Gold and lime green Thursday night. Put the new engine in, and Roll out to Moab Friday at 1pm.

    I’m game, let me paint that thing up.
