One step forward, three steps back for me at this time. I have the Rusty's 8 inch long arm on, and the front axle under her so she can roll outside and get some sun, but the next step is locating the track bar properly on the axle.
I can't do that without loading her down with the engine, tranny and x fer case, but I don't want to do that until the undercarriage is cleaned, fixed and painted, so my gears have shifted to my floorboards for now. Maybe late this year or early next year is when I can continue with the lift. I am getting excited seeing her sit up high, but my goal is absolutely NO RUST!!!! Oh well, that is how it goes,,,better get back to the garage and do something productive now.
Once something significant is done, I will post pictures.
If I knew the weights of the components, I could cheat a bit, but this stage gives me the excuse to just finish the underneath to my demanding standards I suppose.
