Rust sucks... I hate Michigan for that specifically

I saw a good idea recently for those zip ties holding the hydraulic hoses to the link arm when they break. Also it looks like your driver brake rotor has a strange wear pattern

looks good though, I've got some trails in the works down here, lemme know when you're coming this way.

And for pitty sakes trim those zip ties and link bolts

Links are working great. The rig is 100% more stable than the old suspension and the added flex is nice.
