Well, like usual, life has a way of messing up our plans. We wanted to work on this little project every free weekend, but those "free" weekends are few and far between. It took more than a month later to get some more progress going on our "Weekend Beater." But hey, that's exactly what this project is for. This gives us the chance to learn how to slowly but surely work on a truck one weekend at a time. So, to pick up where we left off, we had the truck completely torn down and back-halved the last weekend, so now it's time to get going on the rear suspension.

Follow along and we'll show you how we set up our rear suspension in the comfort of our own driveway. What we learned from spending an entire weekend building everything from scratch was that, depending on your application, it's definitely worth it to buy pre-fabbed four-links and tabs!
