So excited to be THAT much closer
Got the rear shocks figured out, and after some discussion, I'll be ordering a bunch of 4-line bushings and pipe...and we'll be doing away with the leaf system.
So for now...we at least know how low...and HIGH this thing will go in the rear.
Well, I had an hour to start un-bolting things and this is what I came up with.
Removed the bottom 3 supports on the leaf and put it back on.
Seems like it worked ok as far as letting me know where my limits are before I start welding things in place. Also....Gonna have to cut some fenders up front (more than likely in the rear.....just need to remove the front covers and everything to see where I'm at)
Not quite as low as it can go...but I'd be happy with the front being where it is, and the rear being level...then hit the bags and BAM....8"s
Back to the drawing board
So I got some free time for this (not much).....remove the rear leafs and flipped the main one over to see what it'd do......if this is how low I can go...I'm IN 100%
Just need to do the front then we can fab up some brackets for the bags n shocks
Painter Ryan finally got his rear end all mocked up, welded, bolted and in....bolted the motor up, squeezed the tires under and pulled the rear axle jack stands for the first time in a few months.....here is what we have!! Sick low stance, about 3" frame clearance, with a bit more to go...fully adjustable ride height.....and front still needs to be lowered....should be only a week or so before she's ready to hit the road!
Here is our painters bus....getting a custom trim job done on the suspension.
It's sitting on it's brake drums right now, but when it's all said and done, it will only be 3" higher than this. We'll be redoing all the electrical work on this and possibly upgrading the lighting throughout.
