      how do you keep your parts cars moveable after you've stripped out the suspension and subframes?

      Trying to figure out how to keep my parts car moveable before I take all this stuff off

        Leave ass end on jack stands, jack up front with a floor jack, have scrapper with flat bed lift ass end up and pull car with cable onto flat bed while you are rolling the front with the floor jack. Done it a handful of times and it works just fine.

          Once you remove suspension cutting is the best option unless u got a forklift.

            Damn, that sounds like it would be great but I'm not sure it will work for my location...i'm in a townhome and the road outside my place isn't wide enough to fit a flatbed.

            My other idea was to use a few of those composite mover's dollies from harbor freight that suppport up to 1k weight and use a 4x4 or two. I'll have to roll it out of the garage for it to be towed away.

              Ahhh, that's shitty. Makes things much easier otherwise.

              I would suggest a few shopping carts with the actual cart cut off and just the rollers. They work quite well.

                i would ask you to link me what you got cause i wanna look into it
