Instead of all that grinding see if you can find someone with a big engine lathe and turn that sucker down.

For your application it maybe easier to just make your own arms from scratch. Over on DR they do this a lot.

So you basically want the draglink and panhard bar perfectly level with another, so the mount on the axle will have to be as high as needed to make them level?

And what are you talking about "reaming" Andrew?

I keep seeing extending the radius arms, but how long should I actually extend them?

Can anyone direct me to a link for basically everything?

yea when you look at the front set up standing in front of the truck you want the draglink and panhard to be almost the same angle to each other


reaming aka opening the hole a little more

Awesome, maybe I can find someone with a lathe.

Seems as if coils are almost easier than leafs, but it may be just me. ?
