Great build, enjoy reading.....that rear end is a strange one, wish i had a suggestion to help. Very curious to find out the fix, as i m sure you are as well
I think I'm about to fight through it. Yesterday wasn't fun, but at least I got out of the house, As far as the rear, I'm just going to drive it and see if anything gets worse.

I agree, getting out of the house is good first step, baby steps

Good idea! Drive it till it breaks.....

Didn't plan on it, it just happened. It went to a guy in Baton Rouge. I don't think he's a member, but I told him about the board.

I'm still test fitting parts and pieces, but it's coming together.

I alsot go one for the lower, but I'm not really happy with it, so I'll keep looking. How do you like my "six-pack" holder? , just having a little 4th of July fun, enjoy!!!

Unfortunately, unless it is posted in this thread somewhere, I don't have the part number anymore.
