Almost a year since my last update. But that means that nothing has broken and I have been offroading for a full year without problems :ymhug:
But now it's time for some upgrades.

One piece of miserable looking samurai axle.
Image

Removed all crap we don't need. An ad some spring over pads.
Image

SPOA-pads from lowrange.
Image

Pretty good difference between 413 and Samurai spring spacing.
Image

Reinforced the axle housing.
Image

Knuckle ball gussets from lowrange to.
Image

I'm bored with drum brakes after 15 years
Image

So we get some shiny bits instead :)
Image

mock-up to plan for brake hose routing.
Image

welding on front axle done!
Image

more or less done with the welding for the rear to. Measured the new rear axle and it's a bit wider that I expected.. I was hoping to not run spacers at all, but looks like I will have to keep the front spacers to match the rear.
