I got the passenger side upper control arm installed as well and then dropped it on the ground and threw the wheels on it.

01-08-2011 10:34 AM Upper Control Arm Installed
I got the drivers side upper control arm installed.
You can see the eccentric washers that can control caster adjustment.

I had to do this after I realized the flat mounting plate had to be shimmed the same amounts front and back and I couldn't use the different amount of shims method for caster adjustment......

The weld in the last pic was used to ''bend'' the frame up a little on the front.

01-08-2011 10:17 AM Crossmember Welded
I got the crossmember and shock towers welded in and polished up.

The heat from the welding put the crossmember out of whack with the rest of the frame so I had to twist it a bit to get the crossmember parallel to the back half of the frame.

This put the side rails slightly out of parallel but I can correct for this with the body mount bracket locations.
