Laughing Thanks guys... I know, it's a bit over due. Razz


The hair pins will mount to the floor pan (with another bracket and rose joint), just at the bottom of the A post. This is then the pivot point for the whole axel assembly. The leaf spring is then mounted to the frame head with another bracket.
This pic may help make it a bit clearer... Or I could pull my finger out and get it mounted.

Dave, are you going to have to lose some of the leaves in the spring as there will be no weight up front?

Very nice work though i must say.

Where , this thread gone?!? Razz Razz


Andy, I think you're right. I'll have to take a few leaves out to get a nice ride, as I suspect it'll be too harsh as it is. Bit of trial and error setting it up once it's rolling.


Gaz, I love the idea of working for myself. But as what I earn is our only steady income, it won't be happening just yet... Maybe once Rach has a real job. Laughing

Since Bringing Rach along to a meet, she's done a complete U-turn and wants the car ready for show season. bounce
First thing was to set the ride height of the front end and fabricate the spring mount. So I chopped off the front clip then sat the frame head on a piece of 2x4 and mocked up the front axel. Happy with the height I measured up and have started fabricating the spring mount. (sorry, no pics yet Embarassed )

As I'm not gonna get enough time to paint and polish it properly, it's getting a temporary finish of red oxide for this season. Spent this evening throwing some on the 'pan.
