Although never a bad idea the yj springs are basically the same length as stock and are definately doing more than stock springs so it's an improvement. Of course I would be glad to build you one J

Looks like you have room to outboard those shocks too. Just gives you a bit more damping for hwy driving. Looking good

I would be glad if you built me one. We will see how it does after the front is in and go from there.

Here is a pic I snapped with my cell before I left your house

It needs hi-steer bad, but the front and rear axles/suspension are in place. Work done in two days, not too bad for two days IMHO..

Ditch the 5" body lift

Good work Brandon & Jerm. Now get that passenger side knuckle milled drilled and tapped for high steer.

Thanks! I plan on ditching the body lift but that will have to wait a little while. High Steer is next on the list. We didn't do the reverse shackle due to funding, but I am very happy with the results. Thanks again Brandon!

A few more pics:



MEGA Z BAR!

Make it one project, otherwise you'll be doing linkages twice...

Looking good though

I would say more of didn't have the materials to do it at the time, that would have required shims and I didn't have the material to go through the frame. The whole shackle reversal is a debate in itself but I think it turned out well. Hope you have your tarp

I think I am going to tear into my front end either today or tomorrow, been dreading the cut n turn but just gotta get r done..

Search the ballistic section, they are the cheapest for the mill/drill/tap on the knuckles or swap them locally with parts mike (http://www.partsmike.com/store/store...on=show_detail).

Parts mike has everything you need including arms etc, but the ballistic ones are pretty nice too..

I have a reamer for you steering arm to make it fit the larger GM pitman arm (you can fit the one you have on INSIDE of the GM one!). It's basically what is attached to that steering arm we pulled off yesterday. You might just go with something like this though http://www.partsmike.com/store/store...on=show_detail

How would lowering the body affect linkage? Hey J I just remembered I never tightened the nut/bolt that that keeps the passenger side TRE from threading in/out of the Tie Rod - better tighten that up..

Well Mr Smartie Pants, I guess since he has one of those Scouts that has the steering box mounted to the frame instead of the body...

Ok, so never mind...

I bought a pitman arm that looks similar to that one when we installed the old steering setup. We never used it though, so it got tossed on the shelf somewhere. I will have to find it

Yeah I would have kept those Z-link pics to myself I'm sure it's only temporary.


Jerm, give John Nutter a shout for your getting your knuckle milled/drilled/tapped. He did my knuckles when I did my high steer.
$65 includes return shipping. He does good work, great prices and quick turn around.

Partsmike does the machine work for knuckles, too.

I got my high steer arms, DOM tubing and threaded inserts from Ballistic Fab.
