Pushing the Dana 44 TTB
Well there is no ice to fish on, and few rabbits to hunt. So it is fabrication time for the '91. How far can you push the Dana 44 TTB before custom length axles are needed, how much wheel travel have you achieved, have you tried heim joints for the beam pivots, and how far should I extend the radius arms?
The plan for now is to machine out the beam pivots and install weld in heim joints, build 4" drop brackets around the joints, build extended radius arms with heim joints, re-engineer the steering links to follow the beams full range of motion, and with any luck pull about 12" of wheel travel. Is there anything that I need to be aware of as I start designing and fabricating the parts?
I want to find the limits of this set up before I go through the SAS route.
