So, this weekend was pretty good. It doesn’t really look like much, but there was a lot of thought and discussion (read that as “beer & bitching”) that went into this weekends progress.
Well first I got out the cutting tools and shaved the rear axle. Because shaved is always better right? Getting it ready to put control arm tabs onto it, I cut off the spring perches & sway bar mounts. Also pulled off the brake calipers and brake lines.
Then I set to cutting the control arms for fabrication. 2” quarter wall DOM for the control arms. The JJs fit really nice and it will be plenty beefy for whatever I want to throw at it.
I made all 4 for the rear out of one stick of DOM. (another picture in a minute.) But I will need more for the front control arms.
