Default TJ on tons,links and coils

Well i scrapped out the dakota...was in to bad of shape to do anything with.So i picked this tub up from bbaxj a few weeks ago.

Doing a full 2x4 1/8 wall frame fishplated with 1/4 inch.Picked up a set of dodge srw 60/70 with 4.10s off craigslist for a steal.Frame is gonna be 36 inches wide with a wheel base of 110-113 rolling on 40-42's.3 link front 4 link rear using ZJ v8 coils.Still doing alot of research of setting a link up,more then likely will get the frame done and tack the axles in then drag it down to bigbchevys to set the suspension up.

I see you got the parts ok. Do you get why I added the little round parts for the coil retention? If they're too small let me know and I'll cut you some bigger ones.

Yes, and use a bolt to sandwich the end of the coil between them. You'll just need to make the axle to bottom plate standoffs the height you want them.

14 bolt, most run them so if you have issues on the trail/at a park, parts are easy to find
