Which CAD program did you use to make that drawing? It looks like it came out nicely. What are you gonna do for a steering box?

The CAD drawing is actually not my drawing it is from Pirate, but it shows exactly how my suspension is going to be setup so i saved it.

I have a 86-88 Yota IFS Box.

yea the Junkyard i went to had two manuals and about 100 electric shifts. The linkage is the really hard thing to find. Cause alot of trucks get the tcase taken out but they forget about the linkage so it gets scraped with the body. The yard i went to had prolly 30 explorers and not one was a manual shift. They just had two tcases from 91 explorers left over.

Well a member from ORR had a spare 1354 manual linkage laying around, so thats in the mail. So the manual 1354 with linkage cost me 130 all together. The tcase is really dirty and oily so when i get home this weekend ill buy a bunch of brake cleaner and go to town on it. My seats should also be there when i get home. ill get some updated pictures of everything this weekend.

flex is over rated. Im shooting for about 3-4 inches of up travel and as much down travel as i can get from my springs.
