I finally did something! I mounted my front spring.



After a whole lot of looking, I decided the spring belonged close to the front of the crossmember.







The fun started when I tried to figure out how to align the u-bolts. There isn't a straight line on my crossmember to use as a reference point.















Next issue was where the threads were on my bolts. I built a platform under the crossmember to have a nice flat surface to bolt to. The lovely seam down the middle is where I had to advust the hole location on the platform.



















Now to remember exactly where I wanted to mount the crossmember.
