    A little tease for you guys (502 BBC, King Coil Overs, Dana 60\'s,SAS) PICS

    First things first. I figured there was alread a good writeup in the whole SAS swap thing so I will just post some pics as to what we are doing in the shop.

    Well, this isn't you're run of the mill SAS swap, mainly for one reason, but we'll get to that later.

    here is all the specs.

    The motor. (dosn't have to do w/ anything but hey, it's a 502 w/ all the goodies pushing gobs of HP) [​IMG]

    Add some High quality heims from Aurora in the (big ones)1" w/ 1 1/4 shaft, and (small) 3/4" w 3/4" shaft varity.
    [​IMG]

    position the axle w/ assortment of brackets and plates. Connect those plates and heims via 4 link w/ 2" .120 4130 Cromoly (no pics yet of the links)
    [​IMG]

    and suspend the axle w/ a set of 3" King Remote Res duel rate coil overs (3 1/2" coils (300/450))w/ 14" travel. Just for size reference the smaller King is a 2.5" 14" travel smoothie, and next to it is an average joe shock. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    why are the shock hoops mounted on poly bushings?
    would that not take some of the shocks effectiveness away?

    I'm collecting all the parts for my rear 4 link currently. Still going to stick with leafs in the front for a while though. If I may ask, what are your numbers on the 4 link? How much anti-dive did you figure in? Whats your roll center and what style of 4 link are you going to run? Or is it a 3 link?

    I have no idea on the roll center and anti- dive---havn't really asked, definately going to be 4-link w/ a short and a long arm (kinda like the dodge setup.)

    he did this so it would be able to take the hoop on and off if something gets damaged--most (if not all) of the baja style truck i have seen (granted thats not many) have all had this setup.

    right now the guy who owns the truck (502 and all)uses it to haul around hay on his farm---talk about a cool hay wagon huh?...i have a feeling this truck is gonna be akinda a pre-runner for his real race truck buy the end of the year.

    im gonna go look for some calculations and come back w/ some #'s for you guys.

    All the "baja style" shock mounts I have seen (quite a lot) have not had poly bushings. The only poly bushings I've seen (on frames) are for cage mounts on prerunner/street trucks. I would want to have the shocks solidly mounted in steel. The mounts could still be made removable, but the shock mount should have no play. Like below.....my 2 cents.
