Suspension Progress Update

Suspension is getting close to being done.  Me and Bharat reamed and chamfered the bearing carriers and staked in the spherical bearings last night, and me and JP broke in the bearings and attached them to the car today.  Steering is almost done too - I just need to set the rack length, and it'll be good to go.  The steering column are already drilled, welded, and attached.  We have almost everything we need for suspension and steering, and the goal is to have a rolling chassis by the end of the week.
