After sitting for a long period of time, reassembled but not driveable, the front clip was once again removed and the suspension work commenced. The suspension, though not worn out because it had been maintained as needed, was not new. The other reason to tear into it was that the frame and suspension had been painted while still assembled, the effect and look was not what it should be for a complete restoration. Hence, the complete suspension front and rear would be disassembled. Each component would be replaced, reconditioned, powder coated or painted.
