It's hanging! Tacked it all up but I think I'm gonna change the front. It's sitting at 4 degress caster with weight so hopefully I can get a little more with the front change.

Sliders are off so they can be fully welded. Cut part of that bump off the frame for clearance. Also picked up some thinner tube for the front. Looks much better I think.

It's tacked up good. Caster is sitting at about 5 and everything else looks ok. Gonna mess with it some more before I take everything back off and have it welded. I'm a little worried about the front of the slider hitting the leafsprings even after I took the spring clamp off.

No, it's gonna be a while. Still need to get most of the steering/brakes and sell my tires so I can get some new ones.


Not much progress just more measuring.



The springs barely rub the side of the sliders. I don't like it.




Picked up some shock mounts too.They might work there.

Made a bunch of gussets for the front and sliders. Probably going to clearance the front of the sliders at that line.



Most of the steering stuff is here. But I still need to get my ps hose fixed up on the other end. Finally got it off.


Wasp larvae in my old shaft.


Did you know groundhogs have blue eyes?

Ended up doing it just like yours with the dd shaft and flaming river joints. Got it fitted up but I still need to mount the box, get a highsteer arm, and get that hose made.


I know I should be buying stuff for the front. But found a good deal on a Sterling. Gonna pick it up this week.

Quote:
. Sterling 10.25, 8x6.5, full floater(with a rubber Oring on the flange, never leaks) 1.5" 35spline axles, Yukon 5.38 gears, 1350 yoke, lincoln locked, welded axle tubes, 4Link brackets w/custom truss, webbing removed from the bottom of the chunk for better clearance, SOLID pinion bearing spacer, disc brakes using E350 rotors and chevy calipers, GLO HD diff cover, Lube Locker gasket(no leaks here!), L9 Hardware in both Hubs. Will come with a spare set of axle shafts and a spare hub.

Going to use leafs to start with. Just need to get some spring pads and hope the truss isn't too wide.

For the shocks I want to use his coilover tabs and get a shock hoop in the wheel well, that way I can use it later for coilovers/air shocks.

Picked up the new rear axle. This thing is built.




Finally got the power steering hose crimped and installed. Charging the battery now and we'll see if it'll crank.
