Assuming one is going with air's or co's, is there any problem with running a full width 85-91.5 front hpd60 while not lifting more than 3" over stock hight on a TJ?
Thanks Bruce, that is what I was trying to get at. My main concern is the pinion location.it's only tougher if its staying coils. But since he said hes going with c/o's or air then it is no problem at all with the tube length. Actually its better because you dont need a two piece front driveshaft since the pinion is over about 3 inches farther.
I did have a slight issue with not being able to use my high steer arms for steering due to the tie rods from the cylinder hitting the frame a few inches before full stuff. Going low is hard.
And honestly, if you can weld AT ALL the later model 60's work well with coils and shocks.....as I am still running them!:flipoff2:I went/going full hydro and moved the front axle forward 7 inches. The top of the diff just touches the lower radiator hose at full stuff. I have a friend who used a 79 and had to go with a two piecs front driveshaft. It works good but why deal with it if you dont have to. I love it when people say the later 60 is shit for tj's. As long as your using coilovers or air shocks they'er great. Buy one cheap from some dumbass who thinks he needs a 78-79.

I haven't torn things apart yet so its hard to tell with just a measuring tape.
I can tell its going to be a pain keeping it down low already... time to buy a plasma!
