They come bare from the factory so you have to either powder coat or paint them yourself. This 2016 version uses C7 Corvette cast aluminum upper and lower A-Arms, no other manufacturer uses these pieces other than GM. The spindles are C6 because you have a much wider array of brake options.
Bare frame with suspension removed, ready to bolt back in.
Front cowl cleaned up and welded. First rough bolt in.
I chose to use sold body mounts instead of the polyurethane that I had in their before. We’ll see how rough the ride is once it gets out on the road.
Suspension back on and 14″ – 6 pistion Wilwood disc brakes. All the bolts are this new OEM style that or zinc plated overlaid with an aluminum coating. They are also a crush nut which means that they take some serious wrenching to get them on and produce considerable heat when you’re tightening them. Morrison specifically warns you about not by-passing this part of the build.
Final cross-check to line things up. There are two large holes right next to the front bolts that allow you to stick in a long spike alignment tool and push or pull to get things lined up. This is how they must have done it on the factory production line.
