    Finished removing the front axle and leaf springs which were a pain. I had to use a ball joint press to take the bolts out of the shackles and front mounts. Finished the new frame sections and welded the driver side in. Started to prep the passenger side for install.IMG_20170303_210454653.jpgIMG_20170303_210513395.jpgIMG_20170303_210537471.jpg

    Welded the passenger side on today. Had the angle wrong on the old frame end and had to make a new half. Started to weld the lower control arm brackets to the axle.IMG_20170307_175304376.jpgIMG_20170307_175320282.jpg pretty proud of this weld

    Prepping the rear axle to get the truss welded on. Took out the axle shafts but I need the special socket for the hubs. Took out the carrier but I checked the backlash before I took it out. IMG_20170321_115848573.jpgIMG_20170321_121325737.jpgIMG_20170321_123016065.jpg
