Mike, good to see you working on it again What's your plans for spring rates in the rear now? Obviously the trailing arm mounting changes things as well, I assume you must run heavier springs since the axle has leverage on the CO via the trailing arm?

That is the goal, to get some heavier springs in. Also swapping some valving to make compression a little firmer.

Well thinking ahead. Trailing arms take me out of KOH stock mod classes, so instead of doing trailing arms, I just did this:



Goal is to move **** back. Fuel cell behind the axle, rad right over the axle. Spare off the rear. And should leave some storage room for tools as well.



Playing with the cell location:
Keep it wide and back:


Or Narrow and a little further forward:

Some shots of the basic rear layout



Possible bracing idea

Back to work...

Rear CO mounts:



Uppers (will be boxed and most likely tied together with tube)



Fuel cell mount is in.


Need to get the rad in, rear winch, some more bracing and this rear is done. Going to modify the front coilover/trac bar mounts as well.

Shake down run will be April 7th!
