    Worked on the rear today. Installed the front cross-member brace, subframe connectors and the torque arm. The last things to install are the trailing arms but it seems like they sent us the incorrect ones. We were sent some that are offset and trying to install them both ways moves the axle to one side and just doesn't seem as though it will work. In the photos I've found they don't look as thought they should be off set. I snapped a couple off really quick pictures.

    A few more pictures of the rear. Everything is all bolted in at this point. We were test fitting the wheels Tyler bought. They are going to look great on this car. The last pic shows why the driver's side isn't together....this "wrong part" thing has happen to us a number of times on this project.
