Update once again.
Well the 'ban' at work has been removed, allowing personal projects on personal time (after-hours). However..
I've had the opportunity over the past couple months to re-think my strategy and planning/goals. Therefore this thread pretty much will end at this point as I've decided to put my available resources into other areas of the truck (still including the front suspension) rather than soley concentrate on the front suspension.
You can check out the various other threads as I start them. Be on the lookout for the following threads:
-- Re-vamped front suspension utilizing new set of Trail-Gear HD 5" front springs.
-- Transmission crossmember/t-case skid
-- Doubler install (this, along with the tranny x-member/t-case skid, are a few of the areas I've chosen to deal with); As my drivetrain remains for the most part stock, with the wheelin I do and how my rig is built, dealing with other parts of it rather than just focusing on the front suspension should
benefit me on a much greater scale.
-- Hydro-assist steering
I also have a new axle at my house..
