SPOA troubles

I pretty much completed the front of my SPOA but I ran into a few problems (as usual for me) I used a 3 inch drop pitman arm (it's all I had) and when I turn to the right the drag link hits the leaf springs, it seems pretty bad. I also noticed on the pitman arm the damn thing is too wide for my bracket to put my bolts through for my steering damper.

I also had 2 inch longer shocks from my SPUA Calmini S/R and when I flipped my spring plates my shocks will JUST fit on, but they have no up travel at all, so I'll need some shock relocation.

My Geo Metro brake hoses ($10.00 a set [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]) worked perfect, not sure how the back hooks up exactly do I need a coupler? or are they just longer like the front?

Needless to say I like how the front looks compared to the back, I'll start on the back tomorrow. I'm tired and I feel beat up from cranking on that thing all day. I hope tomorrow goes better.

I know it's onl;y 4.5 inches but man that thing looks HUGE compared to what it was!

still wanna say my photoshopped version of your truck looks "too big"?

Good luck with the rest of the adventure. Too bad you don't have some help down there. We often have "fab fests" for big projects like this. Lots of helping hands and experience around for solving problems.

Re: SPOA troubles

I was so sore today I had no energy to even get out of bed until 4 pm. I guess I worked all day and night yesterday and didn't really eat or drink anything. My entire body feels wore out I can barely move around today. Maybe I'll finish it up tomorrow.

Not sure yet how I can address my steering issues, our club has an event coming up this weekend and from the looks of it I won't be making it. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
