Front hitch installed


So I finally got the hitch installed. The frame had been tweaked in a fender bender, so I had to drill new holes 1/4 inch forward. Now the bumper doesn’t match up.


NBD, I get to unlock custom bumper mounts!

OK, not what I expected

The slapper bars were ok, they tightened up the rear suspension abit, but only helped with body roll in the corners. I have found some HD spring to replace the rear leafs:

But that’s after the car is paid off and the  the front receiver gets installed:





I’ve got the bars installed It took about 30 minutes:


I know they shouldn’t always touch the spring, and should “slap” from about .5 inches away, but, there’s so much axle wrap, that’s just where they landed.

I’ll test it tomorrow going to work!
