You need to try and flatten out your panhard angles. You are going to get some pretty excessive feedback through your steering.

i think you should have got us some pics!! haha

what did you mean by it was bad? I'm still learning, it looks kinda alright, but I also know its supposed to be long, low and level.. something thats not as achievable in the offroad world.

what are you paying for the front shaft? I'm trying to get a general idea for what i need to save.

Ryan both angles dont look too good. try getting both of them flatter.

truck looks good though, ton of work in it.

the bars are way to angled, the flatter you can get them the happier youll be when you start driving it around

it will fit, even if it doesnt adjust those coilovers and let it slide out. plenty of room!

i have no idea i bought the front axle as a used unit somone bought it and put the disc break convertion on it and regeared it and all i just checked it for abuse and bought it. i do know he gave me a few spare shafts so i would like to know aswell actualy.

You can find some type of hub to mount the rim on then just use a locking lug nut on it.

why didn't you 4 link it? It would have cured the issue with the track bar angles

if you dont mind me asking, you seem to have most everything you would have needed(rod end wise), and money may have played a part but those 39.5's weren't cheap lol

I think not only do the trac-bar/panhard bar angles need to be flatter, they need to be longer... almost the same length as your steering arm... The angle on mine isn't bad but i still get horrid death wobble, i've got to re-design this shops attempt and make mine much longer..
