Cleveland is the same as it always is. Lee U, however is undergoing some major upgrades. A new Science and Math building and they have purchased the old Cleveland Library and some other houses that are close by. I hope they buy that whole area, we sale them paint and lots of it.

This is about all I could find, I will take some later. It is the frame brackets from my Teraflex long arm kit.

So I got a few more things done, I finished up the lower control arms. I got them welded up, primed and put back on the jeep. I also sold my rear bumper-tire carrier. Made a simple rear bumper and got it mocked up. I finished up one of the frame to roll bar tie ins. I also got a few springs together to try out, for lowering the ride height.







I also got this welded up.

More later.......

Ok, so the tires finally got here and I got two of them mounted up this evening. I put them on the driverside of the jeep. The jeep is still on jack stands but the tires are barley touching the ground. Just as I knew it would be, very tall. I will mount the other two tires tomorrow and start swapping out springs. Here are the pictures.

So I got the other 2 tires mounted up this evening and the jeeps full weight is on the tires now. I got a measurement to the top of the windshield frame is 81in. I will start changing springs out tomorrow. I would like to lower it about 3 to 4 in or more.




More later.........

I got a chance to change the springs around and here is where I ended up. These are pictures of the new ride height and the clearances. The springs in the front are RE 3.5 with 3/4 spacer and the rear are factory ZJ-TJ front???? I will try one more thing, factory tj rear springs and up front no 3/4 spacer with the RE 3.5s. I like the height it is at now but just a little lower would be ok too. On the passenger side front, the problem will be the drag link hitting the frame, I might have to notch that?? Measurement now to the top of the windshield frame is 79in.
The 2 pictures below are, 1st pic 3.5 springs 2nd pic 5.5 springs.





So I did the best I could with what I had. I put a couple of 6x6s under the driver side front tire and jacked the passenger rear up. This was as far as I could safely get it to compress.


On the driver side the track bar was the only thing that I was concerned with. Close...



More later..........

I think I started around Oct 10th or so. It seems like a long time to me, but I guess maybe it isn't. I still have a lot to do. Gears, fuel lines, brake lines, drive shafts, hydro assist, spare tire carrier, etc.etc.etc. I hope to be done sometime in early March. Thanks for the comment........

I am in the process of doing about the same install in the front with links. Do you have any pictures of front upper link at frame side. I am having same issue with trackbar and pipman arm. I pushed front axle out couple inches so everything is close. I was just curious how far aft you mounted upper link bracket. Also I like the way you have pictures with different spring sizes installed. It kinda helpa me decide what size springs to try.

Thanks
Kyle

I did put a set of stock tj springs on there, I didn't take any pics though. It will sit on them ok, but there is very little to no up travel in the front. The drag link likes about 1/4in before hitting the frame.

Thanks.
Ya I here ya, it will now pass through. Before I put the 3.5 springs on there, there was no way.
I am now doing some painting on the rear quarter guards and tomorrow I will pick up a set of f250 shock towers for the rear out boarded shocks.
More later..........

Here are a couple pics. It is basically just a piece of 1/4in plate welded to the bottom of the frame with a link bracket welded on it. There is another 1/4in piece of plate welded from the back of that to the frame.


Hope this helps..

Thanks for the comments.
So I got these from the Ford dealership. Then I cut them up. I cut them so they would lean outwards from the frame about 2.5in. Thats one of the nice things about fullwidth axles, especially the rear, lots of room. I didn't want to cut back in to the frame, so this was a easy way to mount the shocks and get them to the height I wanted.
