In 74 it ran re-buildable Gabriel shocks, there are Rough Countrys on it now which are just about the same thing. They will prolly get painted Gabriel white and run after re-building. The car has 10 inches of travel in the front & 11 in the rear. Here is a pic of the rear torsion bar suspension:

The silver can in the pic holds the water jug for the drinking system.

We are still waiting to hear if Malcolm Smith will be one of the drivers or not, he is supposed to have back surgery in the next couple of weeks or so.
