well, i knew lots of you guys are wondering how it was going. its going slow as i have been working on other things as well.
First, on the rad arm mounts. i bought new wedges since i didnt feel like using my old screwed up ones..
FYI, the rad arm wedges have to be inboardeed 1/2-3/4" on each side do to the tube stops shorter, but i dont think it is a big deal.
the passanger side is easy. the driver side is some work.
first you need to grind the spring pad on the casting round
next you need to make your wedges fit
the problem pic
spring pads in the way, and the wedge is to wide
the wedges are still to wide though
i keopt checking it to see what part of the wedge wasnt fully seating and the high spot by smearing grease on the axle casting where the wedge will partially sit
the mark left on the wedge then
shows you where to grind more
how you want it to fit
total amount removed
use a solid d44 to compare it to to set the stuff right
the easy passanger side, you also had to remove the spring pad, and the plate the U bolts run through on this side.
how it fits on the driver side
the hose clamps make a kickass way to hold it while you set your caster. my catse risnt set yet, but ithink i can set it th best i can off that d44, then i can acually put it under the truck and bolt it on using just the hose clamps to hold them toghther, and then put my old coils in just to recheck it at ride height.
then the coils come out and get thrown away for my airbags. [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]
