here is some floor mock up pictures, still need to make some brackets for the track bar and rod ends
how much lift?
how much you want? It's adjustable up to around 15"
how much is the final going to go for ?
Track Bar? Why not triangulate and eliminate it?
simplicity and lower cost to the customer. No final price as of right now, but i think it will be hovering about 1300.00. I started tearing down the truck today but due to lack of motivation (and a hangover) i didn't get far
sitting on coils now, yee haw
I used to work for a bank stacking dimes professionally
Looking good, can't wait to see some flex pics. What are those springs out of?
a jeep...hahahahaha. But no seriously they are out of the front of a jeep wrangler rubi. perfect for a blazer with a lgiht rearend. For the big boys with the big tires etc. I might be offering a heavy duty kit with some 2" tube larger heims, and stiffer springs.
Sweet looking innovation there. You should add a couple simple tabs for limit straps. Think you'll need a track bar to eliminate side to side movement?
Does that track bar bolt up to the stock spring location?
yeah there is going to be a panhard rod, just haven't had time to build it yet. The links mount to the stock front springs hnager ,but you have to cut the rivets off and move it forward about 18" because the links are 4' long. Limiting straps will probably be needed. Not sure if the 'ol rubi jeep srpings will be stiff enough, but i will enjoy the overly soft ride for a while just for a change from the way too stiff springs! Ugh, i can't wait for the floating feeling.
I think this kit will be adaptable to the front axle (with heavier springs) but i'm going to keep leafs up front for dependability. I think with all the issues involved around doing link front it's not worth it, just use some 52, or 57's out of a dodge for super flexyness.
alrighty, made a little progress today... got the links done, decided to change the design from the super beefy way I was going to do it to a more high clearance design. Should be stout enough...that's what testings for!
also started making the panhard bar mounts on the frame. Tomorrow if i have time I will make the panhard bar mount on hte axle then make the panhard bar. The drivers side should go together in no time once all that's done...right :blink:
sorry bout the blurry picture
any updated pic? the old ones dont show anymore
unfortunatly i have been delayed from waiting for parts but here are some pics of the axle bridges and upper link, might have it done begining of next week or over the weekend....
flexed it out today. Only thing that kept it from articulating was the ground. I couldn't make it bind up, seems to have lots of travel got about 20" verticle until the axle hit the ground. We'll see what it gets with the shocks and springs on it.
think this would work with a set of 14" Travel coilovers?
well how much longer till this is ready for production and how much $$$$. I'm needing a rear setup for my truck.
not sure still need to take her out and beat it fro a bit....oh get your minds out of the gutter...
