Get some! Is that your TIG work on the links?


I know you are obviously not done, but I'd box the front of the lower link mount on the frame with a chunk of square tubing cut at an angle so there is a "ramp" on it so it doesn't get hung up as easily.

Looks like you have the task well in hand, lookin' good.

Should you not just tack all those mounts in before cycling the suspension and checking for binding?

Ya, they are all just tacked, except for the tabs on the axles.....They should be ok in the current position(hopefully)!!! Rear truss, & frame link mounts are all just tacked.

Gonna mount the hoops & shocks this week, cycle everything & we'll see?

I'd notch a 90 in it so it sits on the top corner of the frame rail. Good see you adding gussets to the weak frame.

ya, stock width.....35" tires. There's plenty of room for the coilovers outside the frame rails, gonna run some wheel spacers just to help increase with stability. We'll see?

FINISHED!!!!!

Drove it around a lil yesterday. The rear tires rub the coilovers a little, the wheel spacers should be here in a week or two? As of now that seems to be the only problem I've encountered so far.......As soon as the spacers get here I'm gonna twist it up a little bit & I'll post some pics & numbers for those interested.
