Here are some pics. The kit looks tarnished for some reason, but its not, i think its the camera not taking a clear picture. Anyways here are the pics, and i forgot to mention that this kit has never been installed and ran, and it also comes with a set of shackle sides. You can also run 52 in springs by flipping the front crossmember around. Thanks for looking.
That looks pretty good....hope mine can come out like that.
Hey, krawler, is this for a 2wd to 4wd conversion, or is this only 4wd IFS to 4wd SFA converstion???
Also, what springs does this setup require for the front? 52"'s? 56"'s? Other?
***Edit: Just read for 52" springs if it's flipped.... If it's not flipped, what does it use?
It was set up to be ran on a 4x4, but i believe it can be ran on a 2x4 also. The reason i say that is if the front of a 2x4 frame has the same bolt hole pattern for the bumper as the 4x4 frame then it should work with the front crossmember/spring hanger, and the rear shackle hangers can be hung to your prefrance of shackle angle. Also with a 2x4 frame no matter what kit you run, you will most likely have to notch the crossmember.
As for the other springs, you would run the 47" lifted springs for a 73-87 truck or blazer.
Could they fab up a kit for a 01'+ HD for around the same price? I'd like to do my D-Max sometime but ORD's seems high for all that it is.
i actually do not know. I could probably get the shop info for you tomorrow if you want?
That would be great. Thanks
TTT.. New Price... 400 plus shipping.. i need this gone soon. Thanks.
does it use 73-87 springs, or 88-91s?
could you do me a favor and measure from the arrow to the very bottom/back of the bracket, to know how far inboard the shackle would be, thanks
Beater: you can use the 73-87 lifted springs ( the ones for 88-91 k5, sub also apply) or you can use lifted 52" rear springs.
Cajun: That measurement is: 5-1/4" with out the bushing and 5-1/2" with the bushing. hth..
