15 dollar or less, suspension lift

Check it guys. I whipped this up with some material I had around the house. Took me an afternoon to do. Been working great for a long time. Its battle tested for sure.

Man, life happened.... a few months after I built Fluffy I built a house. That took me nearly 2 years. Then, between running my kids state to state playing travel sports and trying to keep up with everything around the house I just haven't had time to go wheel. Ole Fluffy has been a workhorse tho. I e hauled bricks, dirt, lumber, pulled logs and lord knows what else with this thing. I still love my Viking.

Yeah, I think the last time I posted was after after I broke another couple axles and put a chunk of the front ring gear through the housing. Not cool...

Nah man, no templates. I just took a piece of cardboard and cut it to fit flush to the control arm then extended up from there.
