Here's day two suspension pic's. Went back together fairly well. The upper control arm bushings are no fun. We managed to get it all done except for lower trailing arm bushings and pumpkin bushings.Were putting the wheels back on Pumpkin today and taking a break. Busy weekend cmming up Roger Waters show Friday and Christmas tree cutting on weekend. Thanks to Bill again for all the help

Guess will see. Too late to turn back now. As long as it goes fast. It will be OK. Been bumped down on the fast list.

Ha, that's funny. It was cold enough here the last few nights (29 and 30 degrees - WAY below normal) that we could almost of had snow. But we did get frost.

Anyway, Pumpkin is looking low and mean. Nice job on the bushings and suspension. By the looks of it you definitely won and BMR is now going for a ride Canadian Style !!!

Lookin' Good

THX Bud! Still got a ways to go, but were getting there. Have to look in to the two post, four post issue. Apparently difficult to change front sway bar on a four post. Might have to do all but sway bar and move to a two post for sway bar.

BTW quite warm up here right now. Go figure.

It set the rear wheels up in the fenders alittle should be good when the front is done and leveled.When i texted you last night i was doing the front sway bar and it is a bit more work on the four post and you have to undo the motor mounts and lift the motor a couple of inches. Can't rotate the bar enought because it jams into cooler line under the harmonic balancer.

Thats a pile off work you are doing. Should be a blast in the corners after. Might have to leave the better half home and take a serious run to Whistler with it.

Yep. Just to keep up to you.

Can't wait to get the front down an 1". Looks like we have to put Pumpkin on 4 jack stands on the 4 post to do it though.

Not sure when I will finish. Real busy for a while. Roger Waters tomorrow night. Then next Friday is the annual Rivercraft Xmas Martini party. That always turns into a night of sillyness.

Usally a couple day recovery is required after that one.
