    The axle is only moved forward 3/4 of an inch to 1 inch.

    The upper mount of the coilover is just in front of the MC, about an inch and a half. The hoop runs up just outside the MC about 2 inches. The front hardline out of the MC is bent to clear the hoop. I'll get you pics as soon as I can, I rearranged my office here at the house over the holiday and I can't find a thing in it.

    If you don't want to move the hoops you might be able to find a MC that has the hard lines exit on the motor side so that you can be practically on top of it w/o worry.

    Thanks Michael,
    I cut off the old shock tabs from the hoop and was able to mock up the shocks new location, it will be close but it should work. My problem isn't so much with the hardlines, just with the M/C itself being so long.
    I've seen aftermarket brake boosters with M/C for early broncos that are angled at around 45 degrees but I don't if it's compatible or what's involved to make it work with what I got.

    I feel like Necromancing this thread:

    You mentioned that the DOM on the lower links was doubled up. What ID/OD's were used?

    2" .25 wall sleeved over 1.5" either .25" wall or .5" wall, I can't remember for sure. Definitely beefy and over built.

    No, but I think I'm gonna keep it a while longer. Been entertaining buying a parts truck to turn it back into more of a driver.

    You could buy it for a steal in the for sale section and stare at it in your garage.
