Got a start on the hd engineering no lift brackets. Passenger side upper shackle bolt was agreeable with the impact so the process went relatively smoothly cutting out the old box with the angle grinder. It’s funny how new straight parts help you to realize how out of wack your rig might be. I had to use “beater”the hammer quite a bit to get things back in line and then get the boxes in place. Not even off the jack stands and I can tell a huge difference. Suspension droop is waaay better, although now my largest set of jack stands is now useless for anything other then the axles as a lift point without pulling tires. A new experience for me- and I’m excited to see with a difference this makes out on the trail.

I am just starting on the drivers side and I can already tell this side will be a battle. Impact broke off the frame side weld nut so it’s coming out piece by piece.

LOL at the jack stands to small. I feel ya there! Good progress you are making. The unibody looks pretty clean and rust free at least
lol time for a bigger set! Thank you, I’ve been trying to hit it an hour here or there as much as I can. I’ve been lucky with the main unibody on this critter, I’ve been around much worse. It’s Michigan winter driving days are over. Haha
