NOTE: Eaglemoss did not supply any Type HP screws with this pack. However, we can use leftover HP screws from previous packs.

Build


Rear Suspension Lower Mount

Step 01

Retrieve the wheel assembly you completed back in Pack 04. Fit the Right Clamp Holder over the end of the Lower Toe Strut Bar (short). Secure with one (1) FM screw and nut, as shown:

Step 02

Slot the Right U Assembly into this location on the right side of the Rear Cross Member.

I did the Right and Left U Assemblies together. Notice the keyed post on each one (they are identical pieces):

These keyed posts fit into these keyed recesses of the Rear Cross Member:

Place a U Assembly into each recess and secure with two (2) AM screws:

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 03

Retrieve the rear left suspension assembly from the previous pack. Fit the Left Clamp Holder over the end of the Lower Toe Strut Bar (short). Secure with one (1) FM screw and nut, as shown:

Step 04

Going back to the rear right suspension (with the wheel attached), place the Anti Roll Bar between the U Assy Clamps and the U Assy Clamp Bases (one on each side).

The Right and Left parts are identical, and look like this (I popped one set of them together to show how they fit):

Secure these around the Anti Roll Bar using two (2) BP screws on each one.

These parts should be located around the short horizontal section of the Anti Roll Bar. The screws go in the backside, I just couldn’t get a photo of it:

Step 05

Fit both U Assy Clamp Bases into the matching notches in the Rear Cross Member, as shown. Secure from below with two (2) HP screws,

There were no HP screws supplied with this pack, so use two leftover HP screws from a previous pack. If you do not have any leftover HP screws, you can grab a couple from Pack 14 as there are two spares included:

Step 06

Turn these components over, and then fit the end of the Lower Toe Strut Bar (long) on the rear right suspension into the Right U Assembly. Align the holes, and then secure it into place with one (1) FM screw and nut:

Repeat this step with the rear right suspension assembly (without the wheel) on the other side:

Step 07

Turn it all over again. Then, place the Right and Left Clamp Holders into these locations on the Rear Cross Member.

There is a pin on each Clamp Holder (and matching hole on the Rear Cross Member) that aligns these into place:

Secure both parts using two (2) HM screws from underneath:

Step 08

Secure the free end of the Anti Roll Bar to the Knuckle Base on the left side with one (1) DM screw supplied back with Pack 04:

Thoughts


This pack was crazy fun and had a ton of screws! So far, this is the most intricate suspension I have seen on any of my partwork builds. And, this is only the rear suspension. I can only imagine what the front suspension components will be like.
