Front Suspension Underway

Front shocks, springs, and lower control arms have been assembled and are temporarily attached until more front suspension parts arrive from Subaru and Factory Five. There have been a few issues with parts not fitting together properly and/or easily, but nothing that a little grinding, drilling, or a couple of whacks with a rubber mallet couldn’t fix!

Progress Report:

  • Adjusted, tweaked, and fitted lower control arms
  • Assembled and attached front shocks and springs
  • Sent out raw metal parts for powder coating
  • Next step: Prepare and clean rear wheel bearings

Getting Started

A first look at our Factory Five Project 818 stripped down to its frame; fiberglass panels in my dining room; and getting started on the front firewall.
