Old kit was a pain though, especially getting the old bolts out of the top of the rear shackles. They were really seized in there, so much so that we had to engineer a series of wedges and make a pickle fork or sorts to pull them out. If its an option for you, I would personally recommend greaseable bolts for the shackles.
Just looked at your build thread. Amazing work! You've got way more skills than I do, so I may need to recruit some help.

Thank you very much! We all have to start somewhere. I had a ton of help building mine from my friends either through advice or a second hand, couldn't have otherwise. I comb through any and all build and tech forums I can to pull from all the experience and unique innovations available here. I sub'd so I can see how you end up doing yours.
