Default Re: Jamie's Diesel Scout II

The front hangers are welded in and leaf springs installed.

Once installed everything is painted.

While we had the rear axle apart we fixed a issue known well to these Scout's and that is a bent axle housing.

An alignment bar is inserted thru the housing using the center line of the mock carrier bearings.

The end of the axle housing is cut off and then welded back on in order to put everything back on center.

With the housing straightened out it was reassembled and installed back in along with the new springs and shocks.

Here's the Scout with it's new upgraded suspension.
