    Clean and freshly undercoated


    Cut for the camber plate


    Girlfriend filling down the sharp edges

    Sway in, control arms in.


    AKG adjustable caster CAB


    Getting it done, my Dad looking at the progress


    Bearing and hub installed




    Brakes in, Sway hooked up


    Tie-rods in


    Fronts done.

    Rear suspension

    getting some of the parts ready


    Disassembling


    Subframe out


    Chassis before


    bye bye diff, it went to James' car


    Pulled apart subframe and pulled hubs from bearings


    Damn. Well one inner race stuck on is better than two.


    Pressure washed the subframe and tacked on the toe adjustment plates


    Tacked up the camber plates


    Welded, painted, and ground out camber plate


    Toe plates done.


    This was my work bench for welding and painting


    Trailing arms clean painted and ready for reassembly


    Re-enforced sway bar mount.


    Wheel bearing time


    Bearings in


    Hubs pressed back in


    Got the sway fitted in, then took it out to undercoat.


    Reid welding up the diff mounts to re-enforce them.




    Undercoating


    Diff mount toughened up


    Fitting the subframe, I had to see how much of the bushings to shave off. It need to be done to get to the nuts on the outside of the toe adjustment plates.


    Assembled and ready to go in.




    In, and sway hooked up.




    Shocks and springs installed


    Assembled, time to do the brakes




    Brakes! Hooray!


    Stance be damned! this car does real work!

    Yeah, I got mine from single source but any paint/bodyshop supplier can get it for you.

    If I remember right, I think the rears were $37 dollars with a $20 core and the fronts were $40 with a $15 core.
