More Rear Suspension Assembly

Dudley and I removed the rear subframe and I spent a few hours preparing the replacement for installation. The 3.90:1 differential came from Grice Mulligan and I'll just have to see how it fairs with the new transmission's gearing.

New rear bearings went in with the bearing installation tool and some fresh pink grease should make these giant, over-engineered bearings last.

The E21 250mm drums went on as well.

I also installed the brake lines, which appear to be almost new.

The sway bar links are Moog K5252 units. The stock sway bar links cost $15-30 per corner; these cost less than $4 each. It's a little strange to have something on the car that's not in metric dimensions, but I'll get over it.
