Revolvers done, M.O.R.E. Shackle Reversal System and Buggy Spring done:
Got a custom driveshaft from DriveshaftsNW in Seattle. Great guys, great workmanship. Then I bent it two days later :(
21 Mar 01: It's on the road with a new winch. Still need to ramp it and measure for shocks and definitely for a new shaft.
7 Mar 01: need new shocks, prob. new driveshaft. Must move axle back 3/4" because the spring bolt isn't centered between the two eyes (M.O.R.E.'s instructions explained that) When I get that done I'm going to ramp it and take measurements for the shocks and shaft.
Since the skid plate was down, I dropped the old beat up pan (left) and replaced it with a straight one. I tapped the hole for the drain plug sleeve then put the temp sensor where the plug went.
Here's the 3/4" shim in place, had to grind down the spring's center pin so it wouldn't interfere with the axle's spring pad.
Because the axle (and therefore the u-bolts) moved back 3/4", the u-bolt pad had to be shifted too. It was either drill 4 new U-bolt holes or one new centering hole. too easy. Sorry about the orientation of the pics. The sway bar pin (welded into the end crease) is front.
Turns out the $45 quickie paint job on the front bumper lasted longer than I thought it would :)
front bracket and new bump stop. Wednesday.

blue axe strikes again! what's left of the old spring perches.
