Steering is done and rear lift and shocks are on. Had to get wheel spacers for the front to clear the knuckle. Got those in tonight too. No pictures, you know what steering and blocks look like.

Almost done. Haven't worked on it in a while. Damn girls. But I got a little time and chopped the x-member/radius arm mount and finally got it out of the garage. Now I just need to hook up brakes, lift rear 2 more inches, hook up trac bar, and make a tranny mount.

Its not hooked up. It's just hangin there. And there is no tranny mount in.


I made a trac bar mount and tranny mount. Just have them tacked together cause my buddy took my helmet. Also shortened my front driveshaft. Need to change the Ujoints in it. Then brakes, 2" more rear lift and rear gears are all that's left.

I gotta be reading this wrong...3 girls must = wife and daughters or something right?

The way I first read it, you had some kind of magic roommate who went to a bar and brought you back 3 girls who handed you tools while you worked on your truck...for a minute there your roommate was the most impressive part of this thread as far as I was concerned:)

The truck looks awesome man - did not expect that progression over the course of the thread. Great work.

Yeah those look a lot like johny joints, not heims... Like what I used for my traction bar. Don't get me wrong, they work for a traction bar, and work well, I just wouldn't use them on a steering setup!

B2 looks good though! Really clean lookin once you get that driveline worked out!

It's only on the passenger side knuckle though. My johny joints to the same thing when you rotate the housing around the ball on the inside like on a bolt... I could take a pic and show you it looks the same. I only see one thing that resembles a misalignment shim and it's on the passenger side above the knuckle... Otherwise they all look like johny's!

They are all 3/4" heims. I have high-misalignment spacers on the right side.

Got some new stuff for free. 07 Ranger seats, 03 Ranger 4.10 complete rearend, and an 07 F150 front driveshaft. The front driveshaft is a direct replacement for the cv style shaft. Seats are almost a better mod than the SAS and I got some black cloth 2010 Mustang rear seats for the back. And I'm changing out the balljoints on the driver side. Everything else is finally done. Had to steal the Boggers for my fullsize cause my Iroks are bald.
