I have no idea what will happen in the long run, but I love the color. I think the entire body is gonna end up valspar transport yellow.

Here is kind of what is going on. The track bar/front of oil pan clearance is what keeps me from being able to run everything in front of the axle.









may have to run the assist cylinder to the top of the right side knuckle, in front of axle on OE tie rod location.

I grabbed a chevy 60 for 300 bucks to use everything knuckle out for a future 35 spline conversion, as well as stronger knuckles for the ford.

I think I may rebuild the chev 60 using ford out stuff as it is in pretty good shape and has a nice set of 4.56's in it. SO I pulled out one of the rusted up/worn out/ stuck king pin. After twisting some solid 7/8" hex stock using a 10ft piece of DOM as a cheater, I tried grinding around the bottom of the kingpin to relieve the stresses on the pin. WORKED!

Also had to weld nuts to a couple of the broken off bolts of the lower kingpin cap. burned in real hot with the arc welder. then heated the knuckle and doused the nut with water. Worked like a charm with the ol' IR231 impact.

going to have to make a 1" spacer for the high steer arms to clear the tie rod from hitting the links. This is with a 3/4" spacer in there at full left steer so it is worst case.

had to make new lower coil over mounts and 1" spacers for the ballistic high steer arms, which I would not recommend. They are too short, you can't run a tre and a dre on them or they will hit each other, I am going to have to run a tre on my drag link and hope it doesn't bind up at full droop.

Other than that, after many hours of messing with angles and stuff, I think I have finally got it all bind proof at all iterations of suspension travel. Everything is tacked, with the exception of the ram cylinder mount.

Here is a little better picture of what is going on with my minimal clearance at full stuff. I am going to make another high steer arm/spacer that will come off the front of the right knuckle to mount the ram to so I can get the mounting point out far enough that it takes 7" of stroke lock to lock.




Handy little tip for ya'll. If you are getting a bunch of links welded to your axle and you can no longer rotate it 360* on jack stands, a couple of old shocks stuck in the axle tubes provide a handy rotisserie for welding/grinding. Also it makes a marr free paint job that much easier.

do you just measure the caster off the high steer arm with a degree finder?

Didn't your welding instructor buddy teach you to clean the area where you spit your bublegum at?

I did, then it sat outside for a week and rusted over them. I wire brushed everything before painting anyway.

FWIW, Fleetfarm had little 1" cupped wire brushes that fit in a die grinder that worked wonders for little annoying areas that couldn't be gotten to with an angle grinder brush.


Also, my welding buddy welded up my 1356 last night, so the doubler project is about done.
