Radius arms are coming off to be finished welded and bent to help angles.

I have shocks, steering, drive shafts and spring stuff to do. Also weld the rear pirches in place too. Getting close.

That's looking great, all coming together very nicely. Looking forward to seeing this rig in action. You going to have to be the one to wheel it too?

Not sure if you've tried already or not, but the coil buckets on the radius arms can be flipped around moving the springs in or out about an inch either way.

Yeah, looks like one way they move the springs out towards the tires, other way goes away from them, I have them in. Thanks anyway!

This is a good reason to have Kyle break it in for you. I have a feeling that will help you get over this fear.
