    The drag link was made by a member here on the boards, CoryL, i don't think he is making anymore of them.

    These are my newest pictures, taken today, with my new front spring hangers by Blue Torch Fab.

    Anymore questions, lemme know

    The 44044's are the same springs i have, except with 2.5" of lift.

    The rear shackle mounts are from CoryL also

    Try to see if the guys at BentUp.com can set you up with a set of shackle hangers or maybe even FST which are Rick's guy's over there in AZ

    How do you like the stock Waggy springs on there? I used some 4" lift springs for a YJ and I think they may be too soft.

    Did you find a fix yet for the Wobble?

    I think the waggy spring are perfect, they ride great.

    I think robb tried some YJ springs also and they were too soft.

    My wobble problems were because i had too much castor set in the front end, i just eliminated 4 degrees and everything is good

    Its looking like I might be ordering some of the waggy springs soon, tried the YJ's since alott of the toy guys seem to think they work about the same but they are a littel on the soft side for the explorer.

    Did you locate your axle center line in the stock location? or did you move it forward?

    I moved it forward a little bit, i think the sport has a 102" WB stock and i'm at 104.5 now, so maybe 2.5" forward

    :D

    Yeah twice

    It never ripped the frame just broke the welds. I took the truck to a reputable welding shop around here and had then reweld my sleeves, i don't know what they used, but they rewelded the sleeves and everything looks pretty strong now, i've wheeled it twice since with no problems, i blew a PS hose a few weeks back and had a new one made, i think i am gonna go with Redneck Ram's Hydro assist to relieve some pressure off the frame. It isn't till i get all flexed/twisted up that the box cracks the welds. I'm also having a problem with bending tie rods, i'm looking for some stronger tie rods also, i may end up going with a setup from BlueTorchFab.

    As far as Florida goes, i dunno if i will be moving there or not yet, i'm waiting for my girl to finish school over here, she's thought about Dental school over there around Orlando, if she chooses that route we will head over there, she's also mentioned something around Louisville (not again) and Atlanta

    Looks really good. Looks like you get a lot of movement out of that front axle. I like it a lot.

    Thanks man. I really like the way your SAS turned out. How much lift did you get from the front springs with the SOA?

    Yomie, did you say you ordered your Waggy springs from JCWhitney?

    another question, with the spring you used (Waggy spring) how does one determine how far apart the spring connects to the frame? to maintain the proper arc?

    thanks!
