Got the rod ends done. Had a little set back during the week because we didn't have the correct thread tap, but they're done and all fits well. Just have to finish the new plates and the test fit everything and line up the uprights for welding on the plates. I'll post up those pics when I do.

Those look good! Should work out for you pretty well.

Thanks. Yeah I think they'll do the trick. Gotta get a bottom tap to get the full thread depth that I want, and after the test fit, they'll be scrubbed and anodized. I'm really hoping the mounts are going to be complete this week, and I'll be able to quote pricing by the end of next week on the kits.

Small update: rod ends are done, 3rd revision baseplates are cut (2nd revision contained a slight dimensional error). Baseplates will be bent tomorrow, picking them up Thursday. Hopefully having the test fit/marking on Friday so they can be welded the beginning of net week (planning on getting the marked plates and the uprights back to by brother-in-law on Sunday). If everything goes well, I should have them installed next week and my torsion bars out.

I'm just going to throw this out there: how many people would be interested in a complete set, including the coilovers? I've been talking to a manufacturer, and I may buy in as a dealer if the interest is there. I know some guys will want the high end ones, but for guys who don't do hardcore off-roading, and guys who are at stock height just looking to improve the ride, just a good quality coilover will do fine. If I do it, there would be options available for height, spring rate, etc, but I'm just curious if the interest is there.

Plates are done. Just picked them up, actually. I've got a very busy weekend, but I'm hoping to fit everything and mark the plates for where the uprights go. Then I just need to drop them at the welder. I should hopefully be installing them next week, and then working on the pricing for everything.

I'm looking into buying into a dealership with Strange Engineering. They make good quality stuff, and they have a variety of sizes available, as well as some other products I'm interested in carrying. obviously, I would have to make the extended eyelets, but the make very reasonably priced, quality products. They also offer the bearings with longer shafts, so spacers wouldn't even be necessary.
