so I gave poly performance a call and they recommended these misalignment spacers to me. It pretty much doubles the misalignment

They just slip inside the 3/4 inch hole and it reduces it to 5/8. Its only being used at the pitman arm and Im considering a double shear setup,

Also been cleanin up some misc. parts.

Parts washers are awesome, especially for people using a lot of junkyard items, like myelf

...although I desperately need some new solvent, this shit is D I R T Y

These hubs, spindels, etc, were very messy.

Do you think the tire is going to get into the steering box at full lock and stuff?

Its going to be within an inch or less with the 39.5's but I dont think so. The high steer arm (That im not even using) is going to interfere with the box at full lock/Bump, so I need to turn it around to face backward.

The thing Im most concerned about is the coilovers clearing the box and linkage during full droop.

Also worth mentionig that I mounted the d300. Its also going to be a problem. Its a little hard to see but the front output shaft is right in line with the clutch kinkage of the stupid t-5. I wanted to upgrade anyway so I guess ill be doing it a little sooner than later. Clocking it down is not an option as I want a flat belly as low as the frame with the low COG the jeep has.

my friend came up with this great idea of how to get the T-case in;ratchet strap it up and in from the top of the cage.

its probably been done many-a-time before but I thought it was an excellent idea.

Haha I like the ratchet strap idea.

I like the build. Nice and simple.

That is one great thing about YJs. They came factory with a t-case hoist. Just add a ratchet strap.

Im not completely sure about the tranny yet. I really dont want an auto but I have a 700r4 already that was for a different project. I still need to do some more searching on the tranny so im gonna work on getting it off the jacks and figure that out later.

And thanks.

Just read through your build, Great job. In regards to your trans problem, do you have the room to go to a hyd pull style slave and mount it above your front driveline. It's hard to see from the pics just how much room you have. Just a thought. Keep up the good work!!

Thats exactly what i have been considering lately, i just havent committed to anything quite yet. I think one out of a newer jeep like a yj might bolt in place without any adapters... ?

And thanks

flexed her out a few different ways to check for binding. only got a couple pictures. Check out how close the tie rod is to the pitman arm at full bump, they dont touch.

notched out the pass. side frame for the panhard bar, I used 3/16" plate on this side as oppose to the 1/4" on the other side because its just for clearance it doesnt need the extra material to support the steering box.

I made the opening a little bigger just in case I decide to use larger alluminum links in the future, also the reason there arent any bends in the track bar.

Did some more welding on the poly brackets I modified. Using 1/4" steel I cut some pieces and angled them slightly, then boxed off the bottom. Since theyre welded inside and out they should be pretty strong. I still need to make a piece for the top to close them off completely.

I really like the direction your jeep is going, I liked it better when it was taller myself but the low stance is going to look great! Now hurry up!

Thanks ... glad you liked it enough to make it your first post
it actually sits a couple inches higher now than it did before.

went ahead and put the spindles, hubs, etc. on it to check for some steering clearances but mostly for some extra motivation.

this pic is at ride heigth with around 5" uptravel.

so its been kinda slow on the jeep lately mostly because of waiting on steering components. I ordered a couple different pitman arms and I finally found the right one for my application.

It fits the 32 spline sector shafts commonly found on the saginaw boxes and there arent any masters so it can be adjusted in a lot of configurations.

heres a couple of it next to the astro pitman arm before and after being drilled.

About a 12" forward stretch maybe more, maybe less I havent really measured the exact amount.

gives me a good wheelbase for my area, distributes weight a little better, and of course the 90 degree approach angle aint bad either

not much use for fenders anymore except the looks.

This picture is at ride heigth but I dont think it will be a problem at full bump even with axle sweep.
