Re: The Jerk

@Loganbeere When you dropped your rear axle, did you also loosen the rear links? When I dropped mine, we disconnected the panhard bar, but not the links. Like you, we had to use a bottle jack to push the axle down far enough to install 2" lift springs. I'm wondering what is preventing the axle from dropping fully on its own, and guessing it's the stock rear link bushings binding up.

The stock axle is held by rear upper links, lower links and the panhard to the frame. Itís also attached to the third member and driveshaft. Iím assuming thatís whatís all keeping it suspended

Re: The Jerk

Well this ainít quite right. I have an identical nick on each side of both lower mounts on the front shocks. Maybe the LCA brackets are hitting the shocks on full compression. Hmm...

The Jerk

Mike Studtís rear sway bar links
Installed the rears todayóshould have bought myself a floor jack before I started, but at least now I have a new floor jack. Iím getting pretty good at pulling the rear tires. My F1 career has hope yet.





Ordered both front and rears, but need to get the right ball joint boots for the front before I install. Skeptical Iíll ever use the front disconnects, but itís a nice option to have I suppose.

The Jerk

King reservoir hose guards
Probably gratuitous, but I didnít like how the hoses resting on the sharp edge of the reservoirs started digging into the rubber. Printed these little guards to provide a rounded surfaces for the hoses to rest on. Plus, they look kinda cool.
