2" suspension lift

Post  DICKY on Fri May 08, 2009 1:24 pm

its time to start my rear end lift today but its blowing a gail down here.
two heavy duty leaf springs from milners 4x4 and a set of +2"shackles all new ploy bushes but i only received 2 u bolts from them so i will have to use to old ones from the shed.i dont have shocks just now so i will replace them before its mot as both are leaking.
watch this space i will stick up photos when finished.
doing it the easy way using my 3/4" drive air gun Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Thats not the easy way thats the cheats way where the fun in there being no risk of skinning your knuckles and swearing and launching your favourite ratchet down the rad and then spending an hour looking for it

springs are off. just need to fab up a shackle mount and weld it on i may as well do both sides i might lengthen them an inch or two while i am at it .
i got the rear chassis scraped where i never reached when the tank was in just have to paint it but i will wait until the welding is done
its a good feeling every days work brings it closer to completion Very Happy Very Happy
