Nice calculations, but why the heavier springs in the rear when the rear weighs less? To account for weight transfer?

He already owns them and they just happen to end up sitting about where he wants to be. He is going to redo the rear suspension next year so the 18" rear shocks will be limited to 13.25" by limit straps for now.

OK things that must be done to drive this. "Making myself a list"

1. Drive shafts - currently in the works.
2. Pull trans - need to put tailshaft bearing in and torque converter.
3. Steering - pickup fittings use break line to mock up then have the lines made.
3.1. Steel to mount ram. $$
4. Trans dipstick find one?
5. Exhaust - Should be interesting but doable.
6. Fuel lines $$
7. Break lines - need one new rubber line and a bunch of steel.
8. Steering wheel - $$
9. Limit straps on front.
10. Beef up front crossmember that is holding lower links.
11. Pray buggy Tim wires it correctly.
