No no...that was earlier in the morning...lost the bolt for the tie rod to the spindle along with the misalignments. Sent me off to Joe Fab to get parts with his 50k limit CC. I should just kept going...lol. There was mucho carnage that weekend. Kerry blew a rear tire almost completely off the rim. Mega got it to seat it with the old starter fluid trick. I think Jimmy got a video of that one. JoeCanAM rolled his Maverick, lost his Go Pro, popped his RR off the rim. Kerry rolled his Rhino. I had to help pull him out, and roll it back on it's wheels. I bent a tie rod going off a 10 to 15 foot drop off... There wasn't many in the group that didn't have something happen that weekend lol.

I pulled the front shocks to revalve them and paint the springs. Sense I had it apart, I figured I'd pull the upper a arms to paint them. With the upper a arms off, I figured I'd pull a lower a arm to make a jig so I can make my own a arm when I bend one. Then, I noticed how much slop was in the bolts that hold the a arms on! The frame mount holes are way too big. A 7/16" bolt fits in them perfect, so I'm machining out the a arm bushings to accept the larger bolt. And while everything is apart, I'm going to weld washers to the mount holes and do a little plating for strength. I'll prolly finish it up Saterday.
