Looks good man. I wish I had the time and money to do this. For now it remains but a dream.

it is alot of money. im pretty sure i under estimated how much it was going to cost. im already to far in tho so i gotta keep spending. ive got all my receipts but i stoped counting at 2k which was a while ago.

High steer isnt meant for just sky high rigs. It improves the steering on just about every single application. The flatter the draglink the better.

The people that have done the SAS, how in the hell do you do it. I mean how do you know where to install/weld the new brackets for the SAS? How do you know to make the new brackets? How do you know where to meassure?

It cant be trial and error.

true but his angle will not be bad at all. plus it will match the panhard mount. If he goes high steer it wont be much work to get it done, just the cost of the knuckle and high steer arms

some of its trial and error. some is "well that is about the only place it can go" type of thing. I am not a pro, i know some of the critical angles and places that need to be in a certain area, other than that its how you want to set it up. there are thousands of ways to do it.

I thought it gave more clearance under the axle as well? I'm not criticizing anything, just trying to learn more.
