Here's some pics of today's work. Front axles is installed minus the driver side shaft (waiting on new one since ends were bent). Passenger side is complete and weight bering.

Weight test went good but going to change the springs from 300/300 to 250/300 should sit alittle better

Next is the driver side shaft which should be in next week and along with additional springs to finish the coilovers. After that it's time to run steering lines and brake lines for the front and install the rear axle and new shocks the send out info for drive shafts front and rear. So close now I can almost seeing her driving again. [emoji1]

Both are 14 in springs since the shock has a 12 in travel. Have to wait till i get full weight on it to make sure all is good but it should be close

Here's what she looks like on her own weight up front.

And for comparison the rear shocks old and new. Kinda will give an idea of the lift hight

Yea I know [emoji26]

The worst part is they are brand new. So unless I get a screaming deal on the same style of tire but in the 35 flavor and sell these for a great price I can do it.

So today is the day she finally sat on her own weight. I got the rear axle back from the shop today. And got it on the X. Once I got it on its own weight the the height drop down to 48 inches at the fender all the way around. Much better

Uhm........ So quick question. Is it always going to sit that tall? And if so, are you going to be running 42" boggers or something?

They are great tires that's why I went back to them. And what I'm sticking with. Just probably go up in size. If I can sell these off I do have five of them

So this week's update. I got the drive shafts ordered they'll be done on Monday. Both axles are filled with fluid. Rear brakes are installed and lines are almost finished. Parking brake works again. And got some interior work done for the shifters for the tc.

Next week is drive shafts install and finish with the brakes. And if I have time finish up with the tc. Steering is next on the list but have to have for some funds to come in. But I'll be able to roll her out of the shop for the 1st time in a over 7 months and it will be on her own power. [emoji16] [emoji2]

Major accomplishments Mr. Dead. Been following the progress on fb, as you know, and your X is by far my favorite 2nd Gen build.
