The rears up front I trust since we've used them so many times before. I'm a little concerned about the rear but only a little. I'm planning a trac bar for the rear to eliminate axle wrap.

i love the rid e of the toy leaves but i have tacoed a couple as well i think a shackle reversal is a good solution. on the gearing i just read a little about i deal gearing on this thread
/forum/suzuki/981955-gear-ratio.html
lots of good info there if you were to gear it the way you stated i would definitly run a tcas spine cuz even with 5.29s i was ripping my stock case to pieces. i have 6.5:1 tcase gears

what not mount front spring hanger to bottom of frame rails to improve pinion angle instead of angling the end of the frame rails up to the hanger?

Trying to keep it low. I'll cut and turn the axle after we get back from KOH. That will be easy. May do before if my helper comes in town this wknd and we get lots done.

I have a cradle that the previous owner made that almost fully encloses the case and has a skid.

will it really make that big of a difference?

i've also always seen/read that you want to keep the leaf spring eyes at the same level

We made it. Got a ride in the Stock race. Jeep motor blowed up at mile 18. Oh well.

Sami did great. Bent rear springs on 1st ride since we didn't have time to install bumps. Everything else did great. Wheeled a lot of the trails but didnt have time to do them all. Need good rear shocks, replace rear springs, install bumps, cut/turn front knuckle balls or maybe just cut turn spring pads. propane then a turbo. That should do it.
