yeah-suzi looks a bit naked without that bumper cover.
it may be time to figure a different "fashion" for her.
I hope to carry the jack back there somehow, and that bumper cover made a useful surface at the back, and mudflap function that didn't get ripped off(surprise).
mabe I can use some of it.

mucho busy lately- mostly work getting in the way of life.
I have extended the chassis rails 6".

adpic102613
thinking of developing this idea.

anathathaut110613
little done lately, however the "shop" is getting a hotter welder. flux core will become an option, and my welds may be less like glue.


blather111013
made some "progress"...
[Linked Image]
still under development......
[Linked Image]
new welding gear will take some learning. mabe i'll master it.

almostdone111113
jack in place.
[Linked Image]
another view.....
[Linked Image]
I plan on adding some rubber "cush" pads, and probably change the pins.
trying to reform the bumper cover to "fit", just for looks.
mabe.

ok- i was going to wait on this, but sometimes i have to bite off more than i can chew. i'll probably have to spit it out a few times, but eventually i'll get it down.....
i'm wanting to move the front wheels forward about 1".
so suzi got her a-arms removed-
[Linked Image]
i'm gonna move the (lower) ball joints forward.
[Linked Image]
i'm also gonna have to re-seat the springs, as the lifting i've done allow the springs to bow into the brake calipers when i turn w/the suspension flexed. a little scary, sometimes, when the pedal goes to the floor all of a sudden.....
this would be a modification of some modifications i've been reading about.
should work(?).

cutting things.

removing some metal to widen mounting area.

reform some structure.
[Linked Image]
some sort of plate to do something like this....
[Linked Image]
mabe. so far.
kinda committed now.......


postgobble112913
fashioned some plates from some angle iron(1/4x4").
[Linked Image]

morepgob112913
i tacked up things.
i reassembled the left side, to see if it was close.
it'll need some adjustment.......
looks like it will do what i was looking for.
i'm pleased, and will continue.

messrept120313
perhaps the left can be made to work. hacked moren' i wanted.
right ready to tack'n try.........
this hasn't been going like i had expected. dreamed i'd be seeing spring seat consideration.
still hoping to make this work..........

snail120413

I still have to play with springs, and other issues, before I start buttoning her up........

right-o toasty.
you bet i'll be ready. i don't expect to do any serious runs before april, but i'll probably run to my brother's place(mt.ranch) a couple of times to work on miss bitchy(i hope to get him on the dusy next season) and hyway test suzi.
i hear tell you got a toy to play with....
also- been enjoying gearbox magazine. good read.

suzi the psychic now fits her shoes.
[Linked Image]
4door springs and 1/2" pucks.
[Linked Image]
did a little test drive. nothing broke yet.
alignment coming to see how close i got by eye.
still trying to decide how to clean her butt.

fialad122013
suzi the psychic visited w/tom, her favoured alignment guy.
alignment came out ok- (surprise)caster is in spec.- a bit of positive camber on the left(close enough).
i feel more response in the front. seems to match the "liveliness" of the rear, probably the new springs(duh).
we look forward to stretching her legs........

How about a 'boatside' style rear bumper, aka descent ramp, aka spare tire skid plate? Also, baby wipes in bulk packages from Walmart work, also.

i'll take some pictures-
years ago i bought a hf plastic welder.
i'm trying to reform the old bumper cover, and have found that i can cut and "weld" the stuff.
i'm pleased with how the jack fits, and am neatening that up.
happy holidays.

picad121713
just for looks- no structural value. i may get real bold and cut off those corner bumps. i've found the cut-off material makes good filler, and can be ground smoothish.

i like keeping original parts- even when they don't look original anymore.
sometimes.
perhaps some little mud flap thingies can be stuck on.
we'll see.

hmmm.
poor little suzi has developed an interesting gear whine thing. real loud during deceleration- especially in 5th and 3rd gears. i'm unsure what it means, but am using it as an excuse to overhaul the transmission(syncros always seemed soft, anyway).
i took it out today.
found one of the "new" transfercase mounts torn, and lost a zerk fitting from one of the "new" rear driveshaft u-joints.
this should be interesting- haven't worked on a gearbox for a while, and never one of these.

gotta say again- trail tough is the best source for suzuki stuff.

the difference between suzi's transmission and the rest of the sidekicks('till '98, i understand).

no missing teeth or big chunks- this could work out......

Best of luck with the transmission. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I swapped out the rear diff chunk in my turbo pickup over the course of a weekend, lowered the gears from 3.909 to 4.625...what a difference! Hadn't bled brakes for about 15 years.
