Samota build

So I picked up a sami tub and frame from toyotanut a few weeks ago. It has been a toss up between finishing my 4 runner or the sami. I didnt want to finish either one I was going to pay Crash or Moto261 to finish them but decided today that both of them are to busy to help out for at least a month so I started on it myself. I cleaned up my front axle today and installed the highsteer arms. Tomorrow Im going to start on setting the front axle under them sami. Here are a few pics of collected stuff. w56 tranny/dual case adapter driveline disco. I also have a ifs rear housing and 1 1/2 spacers for the front.If anyone wants to tackle wiring up the 22re in the sami let me know Me+wiring=disaster


Goal: comp cut the rear and go for 101" wheel base. Link and coil the rear with toyota rear leafs up front. 22re-w56 tranny-dual cases with 4.7 to 1 in the rear case-driveline disco-toyota front and rear axles 4.10 gears unsure on the lockers. Crashfab or moto261 full cage.

Im alittle nervous about the wiring but its not gonna stop me. I got a good deal on the engine so Im going to use it. I was thinking about going with a 22r and propane until I picked up the 22re for 400$ with all the wiring.

Here is a rear shot of both rigs and the springs are in almost the same spot. It seemed to work well in the blue one so Im hoping it works good in the new project.The spring lb rating in the blue one were 140lb and the new one are 165lb so it will be alittle stiffer .Ther is no weight setting on the springs in the new one thats why they are so tall. They will squat down to about the same height as the ones on the blue one.The second pic shows it doesnt have alot of body roll to it. If it does you would think it would in that pic.

They are a drag spring from art morrison interprizes. They stand 14 " tall with no weight on them and are rated at 140lb each.You can buy them for 80 a pair. The blue sami has 165.I have toyota rear leaf springs up front with with two extra leafs added. I used some toyota rears in the blue one before i link the front and bent them twice. So thats why I added two leaf cut down to equal spacing between the othe leafs. Hopefully it works better than before.

thanks, man I kick myself everytime I see that someone has the 30 spline fronts; I just keep buying random shit where those are what I need.

your blue rig is by far one of the sickest sami's out there.
