Rear Suspension

Equipped with the Gardner Douglas build manual, DVD and the SNG Barratt website permanently nailed up, it was time to start day 1 of the real build and get the independent rear Suspension “IRS” attached the new chassis.

With minor fettling and removing some overspray from the powder coating all of the GD parts bolted together without issue.  Attaching the lower wishbones was a challenge – with the dead weight of the hub carrier(s) it very difficult to get a proper alignment in order to fit the Jaguar shims but with some help from “he who must do as he is told” and an impromptu appearance from the northern sailor it came together.
