Just because this place is dead- an update on MY Baja:

1" lift kit installed
new wheels and tires
and finished up a bed rack to carry three bikes:

Lt. Dan. WOW! I like those tires. And your 1" lift looks just right. Nice going.
I had my kids wash and wax my Baja Turbo yesterday.

Replacing rear springs and struts. Passenger side came out but drivers side needs to soak in PB Blaster for a while.

Got the drivers side spring/strut assembly out today. Thought I was going to need a nut splitter or angle grinder to get the nut off but eventually I had the bright idea to move the jack stand forward (left) a little to make more room for the 18" breaker bar. Then I could stand/jump on it while holding onto the roof rail. The PB blaster probably helped a little.



Also, I needed a normal length 19mm box wrench on the bolt side to keep the bolt and nut from turning together, since the bolt rotation is now stopped by a rearward control arm as the wrench rotates counter clockwise, as seen from the outside.



Annoying what a little rust can do. One of these came off with the electric impact wrench, the other needed me jumping on a breaker bar.



Ready for install. After this pic, I re-adjusted the pillow mounts so the top bolts align more perpendicular to the lower strut mount bolt angle, per the normal resting position.
