Why does it look like the passenger side LCA mount is angled higher than the driver side?

I got some more work done in the last week. I cobbled the front axle together and threw it under the front to check for clearance and fitment issues, repeat cobbled together! . I first noticed that the frame side trac bar mount needed to be removed and I have to trim down my pitman arm and re-drill a new hole for it. Other then that it looks like everything will fit about a c*nt hair away.

In the pics which look like shit, the axle is at proposed full stuff with the air bumps fully compressed. Nice thing with the ballistic fab truss is it will give me a perfect spot to build a bump pad. The other side of the axle Ill have to build a raised pad.

For the suspension the 3 link brackets will be just in front of the skid plate cause this allows for the best angles on the links.

Here also are the seats I bought, the center is black Cordura, the silver has an expanded metal look and the black has a carbon fiber look to them. The bottom seat pad is removable and the nice thing is it easily will allow me to put in a seat heater

thanks

I chopped off all the front suspension brackets, need to do some more grinding on the passenger side. I ordered all the heims & heim accessories so I can get the steering mocked up so I can finish positioning the front axle.

Its still comming together, Ill have more time to work on it after saturday when my finals are done.

I would think you'd be talking to the owner of the garage who you gave it to

He told me the deal was *you* were buying the stove and putting it in, and since you offered the JK arms in trade for the pipe in a previous PM, I figured you thought this too.
