This week I mounted front suspension. And so some new problems came across. The camber plates from elephant have some tight bearings, which leads to the issue, that the shock absorbers turn in the strut instead of the bearing itself. I am not willing to fit needle bearings between coil and cap, prefer the idea of the bearing will do this... Maybe they just should be "moved" a while until they won't bind anymore.

Furhter I had the idea of an aluminum shifter rod and lighter coupler. Here the work so far, Drilling and a little machining/anodizing of the coupler parts:



Front coupler. Not sure if I should change the SS bolt with an Aluminum one, because I did a shrink connection, which is quite strong. Bolt is only for safety, guess it would work without.
