Balljoint 60 Build

I think it's out of a 02 Superduty...

I plan on takin down the housing a few inches on the short drivers side. And having it welded up to the tube and the cast.

The day I brought him home, he's so cute....





Not much room there...



Had to bring him in the house for the night...

Once I figure out how tall I need them to be I'll order up some of these upper control arm mounts, and have one welded to the housing.

i sometime wonders why nobody want to extend the short side by cut the tube then length it by using a internal sleeve that fit inside the tubes then weld it up shut so you should have much more room to work with?? similar to this from greatlakes4x4.com

First cut these off


I used the shafts to measure for the amount of tube I needed to leave on the CJ dana 30 knuckles


Cut




Doing the other side


Mocked up


I used 2" 1/8" wall dom as a internal sleeve

I am no expert on the axle shafts but I'd image that its possible to get the driver side lengthened to a certain point so that using the 78'/79' driver side inner axle shaft would fit?
