Ya for some reason I thought you did a moveable mount. I think that college is actually making me dumber then I normally am.

Right now im having a fight with the rear axle. The lower control arm mounts from ballistic suck ass to begin with and are to long, which is kicking down my pinion Im going to start with threading in all the johnny joints and remount the gas tank to see where i need to place the rear axle again. If I cant make the Ballistic brackets work, Ill have a set of link tabs made up for me.

Ill be calling Ballistic again today to see where things are today.

You also have twice the body mass then I do

I actually got a good amount of work done tonight. Lower link and coilover brackets are tacked on, rear coilovers are assembled and bolted on. I gotta adjust a few things but everything is comming together nicely.

Kingpin parts should be ariving tomorrow and Ballistic finally is shipping the last stuff i need for the front.

Ill put up pics tomorrow

Im thinking either i need to change out from straight to angled LCA brackets as the Johnny Joint is maxed out. I also need to move the coilover mounts out more but its comming together.

just cut out about 3/8 from the inside of the bracket and that will get you your angle you need.

That is what I was thinking, at the same time I could rework the radius to make them fit better.
