Flex Test

Always wanted to try this out.
Drive opposite corners, front/rear, up on some ramps.
Well, after the mud bog, I finally got a chance. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Just wanted a little more clearance to crawl around underneath to blast the crap off.











[img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] huh?
Where's that "thumbs up" from <font color="blue">Norm</font color>

Re: Flex Test

That's what the "test" is about. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
I probably should have done it on more level ground,
but that's a great "drain" area for all the crud I was washing off. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Maybe I should have titled it "articulation" test? [img]images/graemlins/chairfall.gif[/img]
Or, go back and read <font color="blue">Havack</font color>'s definitions. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Flex Test

Maybe I need some taller ramps. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Ooo! Ooo! I do have a couple ole RR ties lying around.
I could put the ramps on top of those. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Flex Test

Yeah <font color="blue">WD</font color>, those ramps aren't tall enough to get any reference. Those are made for changing oil on Civics, not testing Bronco flex [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
