Re: New guy build-The Family Truckster

Finished up the steering box support brace today. Front end is done, minus a front bumper. I'll build the bumper once it's on the road. I'm super excited to get this thing out of the garage. Started tearing apart the rear suspension too. Some pictures from today's garage session.

Re: New guy build-The Family Truckster

Started working on the rear suspension. Got the axle out and all the old brackets off. My $300 amazon Lotos plasma cutter just keeps impressing me. It made quick work of the original shock mounts and leaf spring pads. Hung the new springs, pulled them apart and made some quick spacers out of wood to start cycling the rear suspension. All new spring perches, plates and u-bolts from Ruffstuff.

Re: New guy build-The Family Truckster

Interested what you end up doing for rear shocks. I'd really like to mount mine thru the floor.

14 King 2.5 through the floor mounted just behind the rear seat. The upper mounts will be a crossbar that attaches to the interior roll cage.
