Got a bit done today. Started by cycling suspension. As planned, need to clear for droop on the upper truss.
Full bump for now, need to clear the gas tank bolts out of the way.
Plenty of room between uppers and lowers
Cleaned up and drilled my brackets for the front axle
Cleared my rear axle truss for droop. Wasn't a whole lot of fun but I'm happy with the way it turned out.
Cut spring perches off the frame, also removed the rear track bar mount. Then I welded all my cut marks back up, I guess I'm weird like that.
Set front axle into place to get an idea.
Noticed my motor is about 1.5" to the passenger side. I'm going to have to move the motor mounts again
Questions for people that have cut spring perches into the frame. Do I line the cut up just below the inside frame bracket?
I was a little unsure of where my lower links were at, after cycling it today, I'm going to run it and see how it feels. I can always move my crossmember and sleeve new lower links if I don't like it. Thoughts/questions/comments?
