    for the most part
    finished it up monday,just gotta paint x-member, and add a gusset on the left side axle mount.
    mounts are made from 3/8 plate.
    bar is 2x2x1/8 with what looks like 3/16 diamond plate gusset
    2 1/2 johnny joint
    3/4 bolts at the rear
    i also have templates made for the rear mount set up if anyone is interested

    Dude, do you overbuild everything you make? :)

    Get that brake line tucked up and out of the way.

    What allows it to rotate as the axle flexes? Is there enough play in the bushings of the shackle to accomidate?

    the front mount is a johnny joint (it has a ball inside the housing that has quite a bit of movement/twisting.
    the shackle will swing back and forth with wheel travel.
    after reading up on wrap bars, it did'nt sound like the shackle will have a whole lot of movement.

    i guess we'll find out the weekend of july 16th when we go to holy cross ;)
