I had been thinking about upgrading to a 4-link and coilovers, that's just alot of numbers and a whole lot more parts to break than just coils and a pair of radius arms.

Plus I could build the adjustable radius arms with some 43* Alcan Orbit Eyes or RE SuperFlex Joints or even Currie Johnny Joints and get a whole lot of articulation out of those badboys...

And if those 8" Skyjacker coils don't do the job, I can get some made from Alcan or Valley Spring Service.

radius arms will break a lot faster than the 4 link...

Ditto. If i had to do it again I would run a 3 link up front and a double traig 4link out back. With some coilovers. Well thats what i'm going to do when I re-do it all.

Definetly! I know some good places to wheel around us. And looks like your lifted already...so that will help ya out a lot. We get together every once and a while.

I dunno what I'm doing as far as the SAS goes. My truck is at a standstill, I may just buy a mud truck. I'm not sure yet. Either way, I'll need a hand with my body lift! I wanna throw some bigger meats on her!

ricky man a year is a long time but buy then you'll have all your stuff. if you get it all together and you dont got to do no lookin around and findin stuff you start on a friday night and be done before the weekeds over. when i did my old chevy the first time i took all the parts off a wrecked sas chevy, i started fri after work and was done no joke like 3:30 sat morning. we built that whole b2 in about two and a half weeks but it was after work every day and i usually work the weekends.

good to hear man.

I'll proly start collecting parts pretty soon, once the money starts flowing. I'm looking at around 6" lift over what I have right now. 38.5 boggers after the solid axle.

right now plans are 36's.
