correct!

what size tires are you running? i am thinking about remaking mine with a bend in them because my 42s hit bad. either that or triangulated 4 link and hydro steering. ditch the panhard and drag link all together.

I will be running 37's on mine for a while planning on 42's though.
Ill try and get em to not hit i dont rub my radius arms right now so id like to keep it that way.
I need hydro assist of full hydro bad! cant hardly turn the 37's when shes bound up.
Im suprised you havent went full hydro yet.

Mine turns decent. I never wanted to spend any money on hydro since 2008 when I bought the 5.4. Wasn't sure what pump or steering box I'd have if Any at all. So it's coming next winter I'm sure.

Installed new hub seals greased bearings and primered hubs. Also removed lower king pin races. Gonna pull the 44 tmrw and start cleaning everything up for the 60 to be installed. Waiting on ballistic for my bushings and ECGS for my king pin removal tool now.

Ya i had both mine out in about 5 minutes haha way easier then i thought. My brother got a new 3/4 snap on impact a month or so ago that plus a little heat and they spun right out.
Well today i had to go machine my tube adapters just had to turn em down 30 thou. got that done then i pulled the old coil buckets off and cleaned up the frame a lil bit.
Hoping i have it a roller this weekend then order my coilovers.
