The guy I bought the Atlas from said it's a 27 spline input for the Atlas.

Possibly casting flaw mixed with more ram than available travel, I don't really know to be honest. I clearnced the stops and steering arms so nothing binds anymore but haven't driven it since to really check.

Haven't measured yet, but I'm planning to limit them ram a good 3/4" until I save up for better shafts. Rumor is Fusion 4x4 has 1550 chromos coming out this summer.

It should look something like this one.
Yes, they're just to the left and bottom in the pic of the transmission torn apart pic.

I ground the back side stops flush with the knuckle until I just had daylight between the caliper and shock. If you inboard the shock more, you could probably grind some more.

I ground about 1/2" off the lower steering arm of the JHF kit until there was barely daylight at full lock.

vogelj Buggy looks awesome! Sucks to hear about the troubles, but I bet you have it fixed up shortly. On the engine being sluggish I would take it and have it dyno tuned! It made a world of a difference in my buggy.

(Full disclosure I am pulling my engine because I blew it up. You may not want to listen to me!)

sleepsontoilet Shakedown run was a disaster. Ripped a new 3/4 x 3/4 rear steer heim in half, transmission lost reverse and the fan rubbed a hole in the radiator. Got it torn apart, did a lot of grinding on the steering arms and almost had a new trans, but all 3 at the junkyard were the early 4l80 with the wrong tailshaft.

sleepsontoilet Catch cans plumbed, radiator hoop tied in, hood mounted, skins painted, almost ready for a shakedown run. Seems a little sluggish off the line compared to my L67 car, but not sure if it's tune related or just needs a some upgrades.

26x15.5, same one Jesse used on his. It seemed ok driving around the neighborhood, so we'll see when it gets flogged on.

sleepsontoilet New correct Griffin Racing Radiator installed with the Goatbuilt grill hoop. Everything is protected, just need to finalize the upper radiator hold down that will help seal the shroud. Trying to brainstorm a way to add some 7/8 heims for spares with it, but had to go to work. Lower radiator means better lines for the hood too.

Id think a upholstery shop could whip something up pretty easy.
