Got some work done.

so after a few months of collecting parts and having no time, i finally had a weekend to redo my front suspension. It consisted of new DJM upper control arms, lower ball joint flip, and new belltech 2' lowering coils. it was pretty strait forward i was able to do everything with a help of a friend(old member). took some time but worth it so if u guys have questions just ask.

Re: Got some work done.

Looks nice, i have the exact same setup only i'm running Toxic shocks. Great ride and good alignment characteristics although i'm not too happy about the noises that the upper arms make after they are broken in.

Grease or lube up the bushings.. Especially if their poly bushings.
