Moved from my old heim setup to TRE's and completely above the springs:



In case you are not familiar with my Jeep's color scheme...I call it "bruise" ... black, gray, blue... <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

More pics at my web site link listed in the signature below.

About an inch space at rest...seemed like about 1/2 - 3/4" at full droop. Thinking about making some 1/2" blocks to go under those arms...but will wait to see what happens on the first run.

Brimy311,

The TRE's are '85 Blazer TRE's. 7/8-18 thread. The tubing is not MORE tubing any longer. I am using that stuff for my anti-wrap bar now...look for that post later tonight (just finished it).

The tie-rod and drag link tubes are actually '85 Blazer tie-rod tubes. They are tapped left hand and right hand already. I just cut them down to length on the right hand side (since left hand taps in that size are hard to find). Then tapped the cut down end with 7/8-18 right hand thread.

Sweet arms, know anyone running relocated arms (other than M.O.R.E.) on TJ 30 outers. I have a custom setup which is working great but would like to improve on it a bit. I need to get the holes in the knuckles out further to run a tie-rod knuckle to knuckle that will clar my diff (44 housing w/ 30 kunckles).
