I am slowly doing some updating for the spring. Building new lower rear links and upper shock mounts to change the shock travel a little and moving the lower link mount at the frame down 4" to bring the anti squat from 97% to 50% and slightly triangulating the lowers to bring the roll axis to -1. Also gonna put a alum floor and panels in the back for the some kid seating. Im hoping he will be into it this year.

Just read through the build quick, and what a sweet looking rig. S10 isn't some thing you see build to often. Nice fab work to, i don't even wanna know how you welded inside the hole where the shock mount is located.
