    Well I am going to start setting up my suspension tomorrow and need to cut a portion of the frame.

    On the rear of the frame there is a little hump on the bottom side and well I need to cut it to mount up my springs with a flip in the rear. Now when I cut, will I need to cut it at an angle or can I just make a straight cut on it? I plan on cuttong portions out of the frame I have on my trailer to repair/reinforce where I plan on cutting at.


    TIA:thumb:

    I did a straight cut with a "fish" plate for extra beef on the frame of my truggy. Be sure to grind all of your welds flat to eliminate stress risers. I have had no problems with mine after about a year and some very hard wheeling.

    You mean the little humps on the back of a K5 frame where the bumper bolts right?

    Yeah, I would cut a piece out, not straight, and replace it with a piece from the m1008 frame. Should work just fine.
