Well I finally made adjustable rear lowers and was able to get rid of my +17 degree pinion angle just gotta get a ball joint sleeve adjusting tool and I'll be good to go.

Went and got the socket from @Wramblerguy it literally took me longer to go get it than it took to swap the adjusters on both sides. Steering is much tighter now too

Well few random updates. I got my front gears installed, but I fucked up the pinion seal installing it so I've gotta swap that out before I can run it. I also moved up to my new house in Holland for work, no longer in kzoo which is nice.

And, I'm also getting rid of my truck if anyone is interested in buying it. I just replaced the rear main, did a full rebuild of rear axle including spiders and bearings. It's got multiple minor upgrades if anyone wants a list. Putting a rust free box on it in the next couple weeks and possibly replacing the rockers so the body will be rust free.

Also got my doors painted black and a brand new hood painted black. It helps that my stephanies dealership also has a collision center that her brother manages :beerbang:

Here's the only pics I have right now. I'll try to get more once I get it all cleaned up and pretty.







No more green doors and flat black painted hood. Sometime in next fall/winter watch for a whole new paint scheme...still deciding on color choices though.

For what it costs you I would get the fenders painted the same black in the mean time

Started modeling a truss in solidworks today for my 44. Front of the truss fits like a glove. I'll model up some c gussets to and get them laser cut too. Kinda hard to see but here's what I have so far



Just the axle with no truss

Don't forget you have a spring Perch on your pig

Did you get the 3D model from the same guy?

Ahh good thing I'm still designing it. And no I just acquired this a couple days ago. I've got Chevy outers too I could toss on it
