I bought a drill press and some metal. Tools are much more useful in the long run.

I have a drill press and steel, not spending 2 hours making something that cost 4 dollars was worth it:flipoff2:
some people are not fabricators^ :flipoff2:. i did my own with a drill press and a plasma cutter. way cheaper and i think stronger, besides you can say you did it yourself when done.

what about when there brackets are not made for your axle
Ballistic fabrication makes brackets for toyota axles. I made all my brackets for the front axle 3 link, it took a while.

I spent $20 on tabs for the rear and it took 2 days:laughing:

do they make them for fj80 axles? i looked for frame brackets for a while to see what there was and if it would clear my motor and tranny in my application and nothing would have worked.

They will modify their brackets to your standards for little extra cost:D

Not trying to start a pissing match, just saying I used them, and was happy:laughing:
