not much has happened outside of work, and that has put me way off "schedule".
did manage to glue the other lower shock mount, and put suzi back on her wheels. note that the mustang shocks came with some fancy bolt for the bottom end instead of a sleeve, so i pressed them out of the f150 shocks and fit them. should work.
good this was completed, 'cause i realized her registration was due, and this was smog required year.....
she passed, so is good for another 2yrs.
now to fix the body mounts, and install locker.
planning a run next month(0519-0523).
plan on testing a front locker........

That's great! I'm glad Suzi passed smog, always a headache with the Mitsus.

We look forward to the picture travelog, as always!

yes- i'm always pleased when she passes smog, and also pleased to only have to test every other year. i'll bet you only have to do it at initial registration?
today i decided to start on the front locker project(as well as some yard work, watching the ballgame, jawin' w/the neighbor, etc.).......

this was easier than i thought it would be.
hope i can figure out the rest, and remember how it goes back together.

richard, I live in the north portion of the Sacramento Valley, as you know, and it's still smog country. I may have our recent acquaintance, Noah Zimmerman, do the smogs in Oakland...he's a Mitsu guy.

I'll be doing a front diff swap with a Starion LSD in Pearl, also...later this year. Your thread is always inspirational for me.

a good smog guy will not only pre-test for you, but give suggestions on how to repair(if needed). i've been using john rood(santa cruz)forever- afraid he will retire, and i'll have to start interviewing........
pooched a carrier bearing trying to remove it.....wasn't paying attention. now i'll be paying for new bearings.
