This weekend I hope to strip the old brackets off the axle, and most of them off the frame, but some like these lowers seem to help show where the axle went stock, so I'll have to leave a little behind.

Shocks, tube, and rod ends should all be on order.
Control arms are still too heavy.

Wow you're putting a lot of work into this. I can't wait to see you whoop on Hoser. Are you planning on hitting the race at R&V?
