The front requires removing the existing suspension, cutting the top mount down as far as you want then building a lower suspension arm. It's not as hard as it sounds and it works well.





Some addition information:

The Ertl/Anson Rams have almost identical chassis (I think they have even used the same molds!) and the Durango chassis is near enough for this to work, though its rear leaf suspension is molded into the chassis. This would require a bit more work to cut out the leaf springs. I would suggest finding a donor Dodge ram rear suspension to replace it (I may be able to help you with this) or build a complete custom rear suspension

Final product:

..it depends on how much effort I want to make just to hold the wheels on!
If the wheels look ok then I am happy with some blue tack. I also love to try different wheels on when I get them, so using blue tack means I can take them off in a hurry!
