Fixed the shock mounts and got everything cycling well. Moved the bottom mounts back 1/2”, widened the top mount 3/8” and moved the back hole on the upper shock mount down and forward 3/8” to put the bolt at an angle. This helped get the heims in the shocks at a more neutral area so when it starts flexing, I don’t max the heims out (they would max out before I moved the bolt hole).



Full flexy flexy oh yes


Made some weld in spacers for the upper shock mount so I don’t use 3 stacked up heim spacers used on 2.0 shocks. Then started on the bump stops

Did some CAD, then plugged the design in and burned out the steel with the plasma (card board aided design, my brain/hand, traced some lines with the plasma). Burned in the frame plating and then made some plates for the bump stops. Need to cap the top and then burn it all in.




Already have the other side plating cut, just need to set it all up and burn it in. Feels like I’m getting close, then I look at the list of things to do still lol
