Had nothing to do this rainy day, and my ddm packages did not came also today, so i took few beers and took my spare part box and started to do something to my baja:p
This is what it came after few beers and old parts that i dont use anymore.
Old fron upper a-arm, old hinge pin and front hub.


Like i writed, this is chase only :D.
These rear shock tower from chase is what i used to put them on to baja.






Cost 0$ and i had quite a fun to do this:D

I did put shims to the hinge pins, so it wount drop of so easily.

Those silverback nylon caps are better to put that tire on place, because if you crash, and most guys are doing so, even me:D , that palstic cap will brake sooner that chase shock mount, so i do like that plastic cap on the wheel hub.
This is how it look´s when there is no tire.


In this picture where i have put hub in the a-arm, it is 100% match to the hole.
Just add that screw and washer + nut and your good to go.
I think most of you guys have these parts laying around, but not sure how many guys have cage plus chase shock towers.
But if you do, please try this at home, i think you might be surprised:D
Only bad thins is, that when using stock hubs, you can only use front tires, but if you have darksoul extended hubs, you can use rear tires as well..
