Totalled's rebuild thread
#1
Finally got time and space to install all the parts I've collected over the past couple of years.

I'm pulling the rear end to swap in a powetrax no-slip, alloy axles, and fresh wheel bearings. Probably will clean and paint the housing since I went this far... Then I'll put fresh springs, sway bar, and cal tracs bars in.

Gee, I wonder why the driver's side sat lower than the passenger side...

These are the factory tie down brackets... They are supposed to be removed by the dealer when it's prepped for sale.

Factory rear sway bar.. It's kinda cute, huh?

I hope to have the suspension/exhaust phase done for July... Might start the motor upgrades after.. depends. I''m thinking of picking up another short block to build since this is the numbers matching motor.

I mocked up the new Hooker Aerochamber mufflers with the old exhaust to see how they'd sound. I'm still gonna replace it with headers, a 2.5" x pipe and new tail pipes that actually fit.
