PostSubject: Pics of my rearend install progress   July 16th 2010, 6:27 pm

This job is alot more diifficult than it looks. Shit is heavy.

here is the rearend back into the cradle and on the jack. Notice the subframe bushes are in.


This is where were aiming it to go back into the void





Got to try to put this all the way up into that void. It's like wrestling an Ox.



Getting closer, notice the Chubby Swaybar and the subframe bush size


Jockey it around to line it up


Tunnel and see my subframe connectors




\


Aligning the cradle to the subframe

Takes an array of jacks and patience

It's in and straight

Ready to go

Nope! Not going to make the show with my car. Me and Teri will join our CAMM brothers and sisters just to root for CAMM and hang out with you. I still have a shitload of bushings to do yet, and so I decided to just leave the car in place to finish the install next week. It's a half day just getting the car up and into install position. It's basicly the track 2 w/o the shocks and coilover shit. Everything else though.

As we were pushing out the subframe bushes they popped 5 or 6 times and each time it did sound like a 10 ga. shotgun blast. I had access to this farm shop with an enormous multi TON press. Just ridiculous!

Thanks for the offer, Bill!! Were covered. We could use some brains, though. Did a few dumb things along the way. Doh.
