Default 98 Chevy Linked SAS

OK, This was my first major build and this is my first forum post I hope I figure out the picture uploads first time!

Before the axle swap my the truck looked like the photo below 4" suspension with a 3" body lift and 33's


Build info:
Axles are out of a 79 F-250 HP Dana 44 front Dana 60 rear
Rear Suspension: Parallel 4 link with 4" Bronco Coils
Front Suspension: 3 link with 9" F-150 Coils
Links: 1 1/2" x 1/4" wall Dom, with 7/8" rod ends / poly bushings on other end
All brackets where made out of 3/16" and 1/4" sheet
35" Mickey Thompson MTZ's on 16" Mickey Thompson wheels
After about a year Its almost done. I still need to build my front driveshaft hopefully i will get around to it next week. Square tube cause I'm cheap like that.

Off with the IFS

My buddy Chad at the point of no return. Had to do alittle frame repair after this pic.



Rear frame link brackets



Rear Axle Trac Bar Installed.



Rear Axle with upper links in.


Front Axle getting ready to go back in I ended up having to redo the trac bar mount on the axle to correct the angle with the drag link


Cross member for the Front lower links


Front upper link mount


Front tire at max compression


My homemade sway bar links



Front Suspension all done


How she sits now many hours and cases of beer later.
