Samurai gets a nose job

These pics show the lifted front axle installed with big shackles bought from a Craigslist seller in Orange County. The original axle sits on a flat wagon. Turns out it will be needed, because the perches already welded on my freshly rebuilt front axle are in the wrong place, giving the machine about 20 degrees of negative camber. That means it wants to swap ends whenever it's moving. Later I learned how to measure angles and order shims to set them right. You will also see the drive shaft extender I bought from the Craigslist guy in Burbank, where I got the top. The front axle swap took about six hours.
