I received my 3/4″ drive, 13/16″ AF socket today, so I spent the evening trying to get the top shackle bolts undone. On the drivers side I have removed the inner of the bush along with the bolt. The passenger side was more forth coming.
Then on the driver side I had gone with the shack-less option.
And here are a couple more images of the disk brake conversion. Today I have sent out for a couple of quotes for the part or at least a prototype of it.
This is my design so far, no finished or tested yet.
