Pack 8 - Stage 61. Front right suspension.

Recommended Posts

Stage 61 gives us the front right lower wishbone and shock absorber.  However, we assemble the left suspension provided in the previous stage.


The shock will be a tight fit in the lower wishbone and you'll need to sand the paint off the shock bush and the inside of the bracket on the wishbone.  You can use the sandpaper provided, or a needle file.  I used a needle file and it's a bit easier than using the sandpaper.  Sand the paint off until you get a nice fit that is free to move.


You'll also need to repeat the sanding exercise with the ends of the wishbone and the wishbone brackets.


When you're happy that the wishbone brackets and shocks can move freely, secure with the long type G screws.  Make sure you get the brackets the right way round, others you'll have problems fitting the wishbone to the front subframe.


Push the brackets into the square shaped holes in the front subframe.


Make sure the go in far enough so that the holes in the brackets line up with the holes in the bottom of the subframe.


Secure the brackets with screws inserted through the bottom of the front subframe.


This completes the stage.
