Well it is all stripped out!





For the most part everything is torn down. Tomorrow I will build it all back up SL style! It will be slow going because I plan to do a little preservation at the same time, not to mention I am meticulous and like to take my time and make everything perfect I knocked out the little bit of cutting after dinner so I wasn't waking up the neighbors first thing in the morning.

Down to my last beer..
And the entire family descended on the popcorn I'd made, so .. guess I have to make some more before I can pass any around. Darn kids...

Haha! Thanks guys! I made decent progress today. I had a hard time with the drivers side axle nut. The passenger side came off like butter, but I had to use my 2' breaker bar and HiLift handle and it was still very hard! The rest of the suspension wasn't too bad. Probably because I have been constantly taking it apart and putting it back together

The pinion bushing was done not too long ago and the others don't look too bad.

Haha! Only if I found it like that. Since I did it myself it's fine.


It is time for a Mountain Dew break! So here are some progress pics

New bracket with mod to the front isolator bushing.



Bracket for the diver side or pinion isolator bushing.



Bracket for the passenger side isolator bushing.



Once installed!





After the LCAs and brackets were is.







That is it for now. I have to keep going so I can finish the front before dark.
