What a grind

A truck this nice can’t have just any old suspension. The rear axle is treated to a nice coat of paint to freshen it up before being installed along with the new air suspension. The stock front suspension will be replaced with a modern coil over shock setup that will dramatically improve the ride and drive-ability of the truck.

The bottom two photos show the new mounting points for the front suspension and how the welds have been ground smooth and filled with body filler. After the frame is painted these attachment points will appear to be part of the frame, not pieces welded on.

My metal fabricator, who welded up the frame and suspension mounting points for me, is one of the best guys around … and it shows in the quality of his work.
