Front Shock

There's a lot more to tell, but we're out of space for now. In our next installment, we'll cover mounting the shock hoops, further strengthening the frame, and a new set of brake lines. As of press time, we've put several miles on the King-shocked Dixon front end, both on pavement and in the dirt. We're completely stoked. We only wish that the DBR kit had been available during our Sport Trac's first time around. Note that the CV shafts are still absent - we've rounded up a front differential and a set of gears, so we'll regain 4x4 capability soon.
