Damn those are fantastic. Bummer about the shock, but really this is probably the best possible time for it to shit the bed. Better now than after you have everything bolted back up :LOL:

Passenger side complete, just need to do drill some pieces off of the stock front cradle bushings so I can put the BMR lockout kit on. Then once I get a replacement shock everything can go back up, and I can install the trailing arms.

Also need to paint these rear rotor hats, terrible!

All those parts look almost as good as the BMR stuff. Good job Jimbo keep the updates coming!

Thanks Jeff!

The lockout kit is from BMR, that's about all I am willing to run from them at the moment.

Where you going to for alignment once all the goodies are in?
I am going to get it as close as possible with my electronic angle finder and then probably head to Rodger's ( SRT41320 SRT41320 ) shop in Lake in the Hills.

Lockout kit ready to go, had to remove a tab that was pressed onto the steel portion of the bushing. Instructions called for drilling the tab out from the side which are bullshit directions 🤣 After wasting time for 30 minutes going nowhere fast doing that, I busted out the grinder made a relief cut and then used an adjustable wrench to grab on and bend it off. Had to trim a little excess rubber off and now she’s good to go.

nice work, this thing is going to be a whole new animal
Thanks Brett! I’m super stoked to feel the improvement, it is supposed to make a big difference.

Your attention to detail is incredible Jimbo wish u did side jobs . I have zero patience for working on cars
Thanks John! I actually do some side work from time to time. I’m not a fan of doing everyday repair work, but if there is something you want done we can talk. 🍻

Man that does look like an expensive shock! Didn’t realize this had adaptive shocks.

What’s wrong with bmr? Must have missed it

Yeah it is not cheap, and the car does come with adaptive suspension.

BMR I ordered some stuff from and the parts arrived without any of hardware. The box looked like a pack of dogs had been chewing it. They should pack their stuff better, my bigger issue is then choosing to ignore emails to replace the hardware. Then I saw some Hellcat folks that were running their control arms and they failed.

Nice work! it's a shame those parts are going to be mostly out of sight. I can't wait to see this car hanging the front tires at the track :love:

greasy greasy, do me a favor and pick a good starting point for me to share your updates to the FB group. Meaning, pick where you started to really provide a bunch of updates. Should only be a 10 or so pages back lol.

Starting point for what part of the car? The initial build last year or just this year?

Eh, this year is fine. You've been doing a ton of updates, so just pick a juicy spot and I can run with it.
