My front bump stops also got destroyed during the LCQ so I've ground the casting flat like CreepyCrawler's Rusty so the axle isn't digging into the rubbing and the rubber has a nice smooth spot to sit on.  I'm also going to try giving them more preload with heavy duty zip ties and see what happens.  I might weld on more support in the future or try a stiffer exhaust hanger from NAPA

So I've made a couple of easy bolt-on changes.  I added some "C" series seat springs for some added comfort and with the center of gravity change and since I have a habit of getting this thing sideways lol, I also added some 1" wheel spacers to take the track width from 38" to 40".

As a runner of spacers in the past.  Since you do not have through bolts with nuts.  Make sure you have locktite on those.  Somehow they always seem to walk out.  Nice updates!
