Finally got under it and looked for that Annoying clicking sound over every bump. I expected to see some nonexistent rear swaybar bushings but instead discovered some loose rear shocks. Tightened those guys up...

Time to notch that perch. Break out the angle grinder.
Brilliant idea. I'm so bored now. No money for new parts so I'm stuck fixing all this crap.
Angle grinder coming out first thing in the am.
Notched my perches out a long time ago. Just figured out I need to clearance them a little more today.
Long story: turns out my mudb8 shock mounts won't work as good as I had thought. Pulled the springs today and was checking where to place the mounts and realized I couldn't put them very far toward the tire or they would hit the frame when compressed. Said "Wait, let me check my stock mounts to see where my shocks were hitting" and turns out they weren't. Or atleast not by much. So good news is I don't have to mess with the mounts, bad news is I had already made the mudb8 mounts. Oh well, I'll save them for when I do an outboard.
Noticed my Viking top is in it's final season... A small tear showed up right where the front tucks in to the windshield channel. No way I can repair it there.
Considering going with the rampage sailcloth version next. I've been very happy with the performance on this one.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
