Thanks homie, I thought about texting you but then I didn't :flipoff2:
Does your bil still want that locker?
I was just looking for a height measurement, so bottom of frame rail to center of the flanges?
It's possible! :flipoff2:Looks good, my future sidekick is coming along nicely.
Any plans of registering it?
Thanks, I remember reading some of that, I was just curious to try it myself.2nd gen arms are also narrower and the pivot points are slightly wider. documented alot of this in my thread as i built the arms
use the 2nd gen knuckle if at all possible. the bump steer from factory already isnt all the great, no need to amplify it with those 1st gen knuckles. if the 1st gen spindle fits the 2nd gen knuckle, you are already well ahead since the bushing will fit. just becareful putting the bushing in, its thin and the material deforms real easy.
yup, i have two brand new 1st gen arms on my shelf in the garage that im not using. it was way easier to grab a set of first gen calimonkey arms for damn near nothing, cut/splice/extend those.Thanks, I remember reading some of that, I was just curious to try it myself.
My idea was to cut the end off the 1st Gen a arm and move it forward but it would be more work than it's worth imo.
I came here to say it needs more sawzall and tires now that you have the front end in it. How hard would it be to just run toyota arms? Would frame mounts and shock hoops be harder then arms? Parts would probably be free.I'm hoping to cram some 35s under it for snow and rocks.
Are you just two 1/2" spacers away from being able to use it as is for a while and get the fun back? Because making spacers for that looks like a small easy project. I'd do that instead of taking it back apart for a few more months to build A-arms.Well, test drive was a bust. What I feared, but ignored happened. The Toyota diff is actually narrower than the suzuki diff, which left the cv's too short. The boot seemed over extended, but I figured fuck it, see what happens. 5 mins of 2 mph and this happens.
So now, do I have spacers made or just go with t100 cv's (exactly the same but 3 1/4" longer) and make my +2 wide and +3 a arms?
