Hey zach...props for undergoing an SAS!

what axle shafts are you going to run in the d30? stock shafts and 35's will hold fine on the street but the first time you go wheeling...boom.

Im gonna have to start checkin around here more often..then again, no sas for me, I already got a sa :)

I like to share it but when it comes down to some of the shock/hoop coil mount we are just going to wing it, so i'm not sure who much data i will be able to give with that. ???

A list seems to be part of the battle but if you start talking around with other people it doesnt take long to make that list longer and longer...

The highlighted Yellow is all i have left to buy... so im pretty excited about that, lol

wow so many of these parts look familiar.

Where have I seen them before?


Oh Yeah, the front end of my '96.

Copy cat.

BTW When it is done, I wouldn't suggest driving over 65 mph.

i have seen pics of your rig. only 2-3 on ORR, its similar setup but not the same. plus mine is going on an 03 not 96. different coil bucks, shock mounts, different arms, steering box. lol

still you should share more pics of the 96...

i dont see the issue of going over 65 either

I just drove my '96 from Portland Or. To madison Wi. My speed ranged form 55 mph to 75 for the entire trip, I found 65 was the fastest I was comfortable going, at least for the roads (I 90) I was driving on and with the winds. I know I need new/better shocks, this should help.

I will try and get some new pics up soon.
