The Grade 8 bolts arrived but I have been sick for two weeks. I started with the upper shock mounts as this gave me better access to the bolts with the axle removed.

I sand blasted all my parts and painted them. Now I am waiting for my Grade 8 bolts to put this back together.

Since I am using a GM rack and pinion I got a GM lower steering column that bolted direct to the rack. I then had an adapter made to go from the upper part of the GM shaft to SS shaft. Since I needed to add another u-joint that is when I noticed that the GM shaft u-joints were not in phase so I chose to phase my upper u-joint with the GM upper u-joint.

I needed to move my shocks to the front of the axle so I swapped the upper shock mounts from side to side.

I cut a piece of heavy wall pipe and tack welded it to the cross member. I will check for a final fit after I get the rest back together.
