D60 in need of a new stronger diff cover
rear shock mount
rust, and looking down the radius arm
some steering stuff
looking back at the C bushing mounts. I really really like how those turned out. along with the coil buckets
the front shock mounts attached to coil buckets/frame
closer shot of the steering into the gearbox
i get shivvers just looking at this lol
further down the road i want a turtle plate to cover up to the engine.

if you look close, you can see how the spring kind of threads thru the mount itself locking it in place=no pooping springs!
