Pass. offset A frame mount

How would one achieve this, assuming I wanted to reuse the stock LR A frame.

You would have to weld to the cast housing correct? Would it be strong enough?

What is your plan oldscout?

Use 4" box tubing. (1/4" wall would be fine.) Cut the side that has the seem on it. But it up to the diff. Grind paint, then weld. I suggest raising it more than the factory mount as it is Sometimes a pain to get a tool in there. You could also use this as an opportunity to fix the rear geomoetry that you screwed up with the lift. The rear axle brackets are so simple, I hate to see you cut anything off of your rover axle. Sell the housing for a few hundred and buy some metal and spend one afternoon making some super nice custom brackets.

P.S. If the mounts for hydraulic steering are strong enough welded to the diff, then I think you should not be too worried about the strenth of your A-arm mount. If you are worried.. tac weld it and have a professional welding shop arc weld it.

Ron...Go with new links...Make it a true 4 link...Bush at the frame and Jonny's at the diff....Make a truss over the top of the diff...2.5" x 2.5" x 1/4"...Or if you want sexy, go tube. I'm gonna' use 1.75 x .25 for my links, truss and shock mounts. .120 for everything else.
