so the heims should be here soon - going with 1.25 with 5/8 high mis. spacers - does anyone know where to get square tube adapters ?? i was going to make them - but --- :flipoff2: - the pinion angle was a guess - not going to run a cv in the rear - will post pics of the front radius arms next -
I like what you got going. I'll be curious to see how that works. It seems like that setup may limit your flex because you don't have any way for the arms to twist. You may want to change your frame-side mounts to a more traditional style that came stock on ford fronts. You could even cut the end of a stock arm off and weld it on the end of what you have made there. Then you could use the bushings and mounting brackets. Still looks pretty beast though.
i don't know what you mean by kicker, but whatever it is, i don't think it will allow the individual arms to twist. as the axles flex, imagine what the arm does in your head. it doesn't just go strait up and down. it has to twist.....
the rear is a 3 link - heim on the upper link and on the lowers at the axle arms wont twist to much - plus the coilovers may mount to the lower links and i didnt want then to twist side to side - - i think the fles should be good - as the lower arms only get closer when it flex s - they shouldnt need to twist - right ?
as for the front - ther will be only one kicker - will go on top of the truss for the 60 then back to the arm - with heims - on the driers side - the passenger will be like the arm in the pics - axle should twist without bind- google a tj long arm kit and you will se what i mean by a kicker
- bushing at the axle - then 1.25 heim at the frame - heims arnt in pic - dont have them yet - the new super dutys have this idea - 3 bushings in one arm - and im ony going to run one arm this way - the other will "float "
