Adrenaline off Road started the front axle and coilovers this week.
Front Sock Mounts cut off



Front Axle mocked up to determine where the shock mounts will be welded


Thinking 4" or 5" ride height



Tires mounted on the wheels


Lower shock mount

Front coils


Front view


Rear view


Upper rear coil mount.


Rear coil view


Side view

Drive shafts have been measured and will be ordered tomorrow.
Following still needs to be completed this week:
The ram assist mounted then front axle painted.
Rear antirock needs installed, powerplant installed, River raider breather kit installed, and the new dot light instilled. Once the drive shafts arrive, test for flex and check from trim if needed. Test drive and wheel to make final adjustments.
