Removing Engine, Transmission and Front Suspension
With temporary wheels and tires on the rear the truck is back on the ground and in position for the removal of the engine and transmission. When that's completed we will move on to removing the front suspension as well as the cross member to allow the installation of the QA1 upgrade kit.
With the front nose off the truck and using a fork lift the engine and transmission is easily removed.
Front coil springs and I Beams are loose.
Front suspension removed. Next step is removing the front crossmember.
The bulk of the front crossmember has been removed using a sawzall.
Coil spring shock towers now removed and crossmember trimmed and ground back.
Now ready to begin fitting the QA1 suspension kit.
