Part 3: Shackles, Springs, Shocks & Shafts
If you looked closely at July's issue, you may have noticed that the Dumpster, my '65 Dodge M37 project truck, made it to Moab for the Easter Jeep Safari, so the cat's out of the bag: We got it done. However, through the magic of print media we'll be traveling back in time in this and future issues to continue showing some of the progress of the build. Of course, the Dumpster went to Moab without being 100 percent complete, so there is still plenty of things to button up.
A while back we showed you the front suspension with link mounts and coilover shocks, and this month I'll head rearward to document a basic leaf spring install. It may seem basic, but in fact there are many items to consider when building even a "basic" suspension like the leaf pack under the Dodge. In addition, you'll see a little driveline tech about the Dumpster's new Driveline Tech driveshafts.
