03-13-2011 08:35 PM rear suspension suspended
I had a little time this weekend to work on my car. Yesterday I made a few patch panels to replace (big surprise) some thin/ rusted out areas. Today I worked on double/ triple checking my rear suspension and how it mounts to the car. With the car upside down I had placed the leaf spring perches back to where they were tack welded- and they were not square with the car. The holes, when looking across, didn't line up. So I made a full day out of mounting my axle upside down, connecting the 4 links and measuring again. This actually had some benefits as I needed to determine where my panhard bar mount would locate as well as the shock mounts.

Of course, as I went to roll the cherry picker and locate my axle- it just barely interfered with the rotisserie. Some 2x4's solved that.

I was able to measure again pretty much everything and the suspension is within a 1/16" of being equal. It is, I hope, close enough. I was able to trim down my perches as they can now sit better inside and I'll be able to weld them up the next time I work on the car. same for my panhard bar mount. That too required some trimming and modifying to fit right in my car. The shock mounts should be straight forward...

I think I'll be working on my friend's Delorean next weekend and the one following I'll be at the Monster Jam World finals (Vegas) for work. I hope to resume on this soon.

Just welding away. Welding, and grinding. Welding, and grinding. I made a few patch panels, too.
