Looking good! Seems to be rolling right along.

looks rad

 

whats the master plan for mounting the front of the spring?  if you just stick a bolt through it, wont the axle try to twist it off when it articulates?  or will the bushing be good enough to absorb that twist... 

 

*went back thru the pics*

 

ok so nvmd it is bolted thru... i suppose this unit isnt going to have crazy rock crawler axle travel anyway, so maybe it doesnt matter so much.

If you do not add a panhard bar you will end up ripping those shock mounts off.

You WILL have side to side movement  with those springs.
