    Re: 87 Suzuki Samurai

    Haven't had a chance to do much to the Samurai. But I did order some tires last month that finally came in. Hopefully putting them on tomorrow.

    Yeah. I think I'll even need to push the front axle forward another inch to get a better angle on the front drive shaft. I think its fairly common to stretch the front quite a bit.

    Hose Works made the power steering hose and even brazed new fittings for me for the power steering in my Samurai. They also made my brake lines for my Samurai's rear axle. Great service!

    I'll see if I can get the old images working soon but in the meantime I'll give a run down of what I've done to the Samurai since my last updates. Glad to be back on this forum!

    Another update!
