|#53: October 2nd, 2011 - Installing the K-Member, Rear Suspension and Bumper Supports...|
on the agenda is putting some of the larger parts I just painted back
on the car. The K-member and bumper supports are the first to get
bolted on. This will also free up some work space in the garage. |
The front bumper support went on with new stainless hardware, as I had to weld-in new threaded inserts into the mounts, as I covered earlier. The rear used the existing hardware and brackets. It took a little more work to get all the holes lined-up and tightened-down.
used my transmission jack and a small piece of plywood to position the
K-member and bolt it up to the front frame rails. All the fasteners
were bead-blasted and painted before installation.|
|Next the rear axle and suspension were installed. I had prepped the rear axle and control arms
in earlier journals and now added some used 1998 Cobra springs
& Tokico HP Shocks, and new factory quad-shocks & spring
isolators to complete the parts needed for installation.|
