Rear double adjustable Viking Crusader rear coil over shocks and springs won't be here until next week. But I have enough to keep me busy.

Need to pull the rear all the way out. Strip it down and get it to Brooks to weld up then get to powder coat. In the mean time the trans can go in and I can find a place to mount the big ass cooler.

With the new suspension, I want to keep the dual 3" but going to a single 4" would allow me to put the trans cooler where the driverside muffler goes. Other option is to mount it to next to the fuel tank in the rear...it sits to the pass side anyways.

All my baseline stuff came in. This shit is NICE. The packaging is first rate, the powder coat is thick and smooth - looks and feels real durable.

All my MM stuff will be for sale next week.

I'll keep that in mind. I'd like to sell it bundled all together if I can first.

My Baseline stuff all came in as well. It does look to be great quality.I have to get my rear housing to Brooks so he can weld the tubes, cut down the ends, and set up the gears. I will install it all and get the car back to him to have the ARB welded a bit later.

When are you taking your rear to Brooks?

Mine is out and I am about to strip the guts out of it to take the housing to him also.

I need to spread a little word too about Baseline. I bought my lowers off the face books and they either didn't send the bolts and spacers or I lost them already. I sent Kevin an email asking "How much?". He shipped them within 20 minutes, free of charge. I didn't even buy them from him and he zero cost me. Awesome service.

As soon as I pressure wash it, I can take it over to him. I have it pulled apart and ready to go otherwise. I am in no real hurry as my engine, transmission, and complete interior are not even installed yet. I won't do any of that until I figure out the wiring. I still have a ton of stuff to get done before I worry about hanging the rear end.

Glad to hear that Baseline took care of you!

I'm over here trying to get my stuff done ASAP. Like, I would love to be hanging the rear Sunday/Monday. As soon as I get the rear apart, I am calling Brooks to set it up. I don't want to call him until it is ready and in the bed of the truck.

I lost a bit of motivation after spending almost a year building my last car only to have the throttle hang wide open the first time I drove it. I jumped a median and hit the curb on the opposite of the road at 100+ mph. I am taking my time building this from the chassis up and it will be more of a dedicated track car.

Viking rear coil overs showed up. These things are sexy as hell. Very well built.





Rear is torn down. Hopefully carrying to Brooks tomorrow or the next day.

Tossed some paint on to cover the welds and coat the underside. Mounted up the ARB brackets.

I need to pull them and put some paint but the hard part is done.
