Zach .....MY lower and upper bracket's came from Jacob, but as Trent said, ORW now is selling them as a kit. As far as I know I think they are including the hardware too. Which is nice. I'm driving it to work today, so I'll let ya guys know how it went. OH and casey I've got a good idea for the limit straps that you could do on your's. I'll get back to ya!

I'm going to go with a limit strap from the upper coilover shock mount to the bottom coilover shock mount BOLTS:



You can get em in any length you want and they are pretty cheap.

hmmmm, that might be an idea but there might be clearance issues when the straps tighten up

why would there be clearence issue's when they tighten up? The whole point of the straps is to keep the lower control arm from drooping to the point where the cv shaft pulls out of the knuckle. So if you attach the strap on the aft side of the coilover, using the upper and lower shock mounting bolt. meaning the strap will run right along the side of the shock.

i dunno... I dont like the idea of having a strap basically rubbing on the coils all the time.

Searching for a pic of how RazorsEDGE did his limit straps, it was perfect

ETA: heres the thread:

pics dont seem to work, but he describes what he did.

The shock tower wasn't meant to handle all the weight, so you weld on the gussets to add extra strength.


And by clearance issues I meant that it will be up against the coilover and if you mounted it to the bracket bolts then when it gets tight it basically has to go around the coils like so ( instead of |
