Radius arms done



Installed with modified lower spring bucket



Rear axle all done, just needs shocks, rear drive shaft done, used the factory one, put in a 1310 to 1330 conversion joint. Front driveshaft needs to be shortened about an inch.

All I have left is shocks, front driveshaft, steering, and maybe finish the skid.

So whos next in line to get it running and brakes?? Also found the front pinion bearings are bad, so that will need a rebuild also.

The pinion bearings? IDK, they are pretty bad. I would replace them before you wheel it.

Front end looks much better with the modified lower buckets and the cleaned up radius arms. Looking great! Will be excited to see that front end rebuilt and this thing out getting some dents and scratches.

Front end assembled, track bar bushings replaced, springs look good. Driveshaft shortened, steering part way done...need a reamer or something.

Rear driveshaft needs to be longer after looking at it again, getting that figured out, thanks Andy.

Should be a roller soon.
