that is the plan

plus the angle of the steering box to the steering shaft on the steering wheel was horrible if the box is inline with the frame

if i twist it some then the angle is much much better!

Oh ok I see exactly what you're saying. I was thinking you meant weld the plate at an angle away from the frame (towards where the tire would be) and wasn't quite sure why you were doing that... but angling the box up to meet the steering shaft at a better angle makes perfect sense! I hope that doesn't mess with your steering/ pitman arm angle too much.

Hey Zach I just thought of something... Do you have any sort of retainer for the coils at the upper mount? Or is that tube just going to sit inside the coil? I would worry about the coil possibly sliding off the mount under heavy articulation if that was the case...

more stuff done, but still not driveable :(

coils in place, ride height set



here is a shot at the trac bar



I incorporated the old power steering cooling lines so the pump would not over heat.



yota box mounted




shot of the drivers side coils and 25" long brake lines.
