Agreed, I have seen a few rover boxes go, mine is probably a ticking time bomb. Love the build!

Made up the new rear bump stop mounts today and it allowed another couple of inches of drop when flexing the axle





At ride height I have about 4.5" of up travel but could get that to 6" if I swap out the 2" lift springs & 2" spacers for 4" lift springs... maybe later once it's back on the road.



With the design of the top plate I can swap out to air bumps any time with out having to remove the springs

Decided to do a bit of rework on the 3 link front shock mounts, was never really happy with the single shear lower mountings so drew up some new plates & tacked it all together with a Ruffstuff shock mount on top.



Flexes out the 14" shocks nice & still clears the panard on full stuff.... just !





Will also make up some new bump stops using the X-spring cans like the rear for better shock protection at full stuff.

Another piece of the Megasquirt puzzle arrived last week, air temp sensor adaptor for the old AFM from Nige at http://www.megasquirt-v8.co.uk/index.php

Finished off the front suspension today, modified my old lower spring cones to mount a bump stop on the top of them and will get a top made similar to the rears. Gives me ~5" of up travel to full bump.



At full flex the cone mounted bump misses the target so I added a second to the top of the front radius arm. With 14" stroke shocks I get almost an inch of travel left at full bump and full flex. This should be sufficient for heavy landings to prevent damage to the shocks.



Front axle at full flex, this is the limit of the bolt on 3 link I have and without starting again from scratch will suffice. On full stuff the tire will just clear the rock slider when I shorten it by 1.5" and only just clears the bulkhead footwell....



Also rechecked the rear with the bump stops fitted, again I get ~5" of up travel to full bump. So, front & rear are quite well balanced.



Next to make the front shock top mounts & finish off all the small brackets on the front wing frames. Rear cage needs to come off for final welding & centre cage needs additional tubes & bracing added for some roof lights & stuff.

Front shock mounts made, this is the drivers side... it's kinked to clear the alternator



Passenger side mounted up



Tops will be tied into the wing tubing with bolted tabs for extra bracing & easy wing removal

Those look like the upper spring retainer/bump stop holder.

Yup, for the front.... look a few pic's back & you'll see where I mocked it up using one of the rear bump stop mounts. With the bump stop mounted onto the top of the spring relocation cone it just sat on the edge of the bump mount at full stuff. So, for the front ones I added a slightly larger & thicker plate for full contact.

------ Follow up post added May 25th, 2013 09:54 AM ------

You'll also notice on the pic of the back spring, the 'X' spring is holding the main one up..... think I need to add a bit more weight to her.... so much for all the comments off the wife about it'll be too heavy.... hop in dear

A bit of a side project here, assembling the Staz Works double bead lockers is a right royal PITA, so.... I made a stand to pull the two rim pieces together & then it's just a case of putting the bolts in around the edge & torqueing them up. So much easier when you can sit & work at a reasonable height with both hands free.

A few more little details worked out... headlight mountings, rear quick release mudflaps & hi-lift jack secured. All these little bits take the longest
