Sooo, I had a little issue with my engine lift. The Hydraulic pump is shot so I am waiting for it to be rebuilt... In the meantime, I pulled all of the axles and suspension parts off the donor car. I tell you what, it was a pain in the a**. It seems that the accident that the car was in caused some serious damage to the suspension parts. Thus forcing me to cut one of the rear ladder bars.

Cut ladder bar: it was seriously bent.

Rusted A** ladder bar bolt

Axles/hubs/brakes/struts. I left everything together as much as possible.

sorry for the crappy photos but if you look closely one of the ladder bars is still attached to the hub. I think the bolt is either bent or rusted so badly that its seized in there. All attempts to remove it have been futile. The pb blaster isnt phasing it.. Hope to have the engine out as soon as i get that hydraulic pump back.
