remember that is full droop of the suspension. it wont be anywhere close to that height after it gets some weight on it

You better get crackin' at 03's pace he will have the jeep done and we are redoing mine before the end of the year, so that will be 4 SAS's.

Ok well mother nature decided to **** on the project yesterday. Rain all day, and its raining right now, and it's supposed to all day.

I built the axle yesterday, got the power steering pressure hose made and got all the bolts for the steering that I needed. So if it ever stops raining i'll throw the axle under the truck, put the pump back in and hook up the hoses. Then make the steering shaft and cut the drag link to length and hook up the brake lines. Then it's on to the rear end and settin up the gears which doesn't take too long.
