Some of the brackets tacked on... i had some issues w/ the uppers and sway bar mounts. Stu's write up says to mount the sway bars first and then mount the uppers around them but that was for the MORE kit and the madw4d brackets are different. so i measured the D35, welded the upper in the right place and then relised the swaybar mounts were cut wrong...

the one on top is the one i modified vs how they cut them...

much better
