    body roll with body lift and sas

    well i got a frame height warning and a bumper height ticket today as well as a window tint warning. That helped make up the decision to drop the body lift

    body roll with body lift and sas

    i'm running 35's. I love the height, but i don't see any clearance problems if i lost the body lift, other than the caster alignment. I'll have to move the radius arms foward a little so the wheel doesn't hit the fender when it flexes. No big deal since i'm going to install extended radius arms...

    body roll with body lift and sas

    well i figured since broncos have quad shocks up front, why wouldn't you need them with a v8 explorer? i figured it would help with stability onroad.

    body roll with body lift and sas

    well yeah, the body lift removal will most definitally lower the cog, but is it worth the trouble, will the gain in stability be significantly noticable?

    body roll with body lift and sas

    hey everyone. I have a 3" body lift on my 97 sport with a hpd44 and about 10" of suspension lift. I have a lot instability on the road going on. I have a rear sway bar and soon to have a front one. I plan on running quad shocks up front as well. Would it be worth taking my body lift off to...

    hatched91 going from leafs to coils

    hey i've got a question. i'm about ready to design some homemade radius arm drop brackets. Should the radius arms be as level as possible? Is the caster alignment the reason people drop them level?

    97 sport

    pucks? are you going to use hockey pucks? i did mine in my gravel driveway on my old explorer, i just used cyinder blocks and a piece of plywood for the jack to sit on. your body doesn't weigh that much so you can jack it up pretty easily. if you have the determination, you'll get it done. a...

    ttb knuckles on solid axle d44

    is that a joke or do you not really need the C clips? i can get some waggy shafts, but it will cost me quite a penny, the only local boneyard that has it is pretty pricey.

    ttb knuckles on solid axle d44

    hi everyone. I ended up swapping from a '80 wagoneer 6 bolt to a dana44 out of a '78 bronco and i had to swap out the knuckles for 6 bolt wheels to line up. the only problem is that the outer axle shafts don't seem to be quite long enough to get the C clips on. (i got the last solid front...

    how do you get in that thing?

    Has anyone ever had a dumb hoosier say, "How do you get into that thing?". I have about 2-3 people per day:eek: say that to me! i have around 12" lift and 35's on my explorer. it isn't difficult to get into, but you do have to hop into it. It has to be the most annoying thing i have ever dealt...

    show off your LIFTED truck - photo thread

    mynameisaric: it isn't too bad around corners. i don't have the gears up front yet so i havn't taken it on the trails. i don't see why it would be any different if i had 3" more suspension lift as opposed to the body lift. i am going to leave the body lift on simply for the fact of working on...

    Yota Tow Hooks?

    yeah, as long as they are bolted in securely and in a way that the tow rope/chain doesn't slide off, you're good to go. just fyi they are only about $15/pair brand new and come with bolts.

    hatched91 4.0 5spd to v8

    yeah i had to run an IFS box because it was the only steering gear box that mounted to the outside of the framerail and the pitman arm pointed backwards to be parallel with the tierod. i had to have sky-manufacturing make a custom billet pitman arm reamed for the chevy draglink TRE which i got...

    hatched91 going from leafs to coils

    well i figured i'd keep the thread updated. I spaced out the coil buckets, painted the frame with POR gloss black, installed an IFS toyota steering gear box, had a custom power steering line made, and a custom pitman arm. i also painted up the draglink, tierod, and trackbar.

    help with flexplate spacer

    no sorry, i guess i could've wrote the story a little more clearly:D my friend is trying to put a 4.0 ohv from a 97sport into his 91 explorer. the 91 explorer block had a 6 bolt crankshaft and the 97 has an 8 bolt crankshaft. the 97 came with a flywheel, therefore we did not have the flexplate...

    help with flexplate spacer

    Okay, i sold my friend my 1997 explorer 4.0 ohv to put in his 91 explorer. The 97 motor came with a 5spd. It has an 8 bolt crankshaft and the 91 had a 6 bolt. my friend is trying to put the 97 into the 91 which has an automatic trans. he pulled an 8 bolt flexplate from the junkyard and swears...

    R37, IFS gear box install

    i have done the 5.0 swap and i used a toyota box. I ordered a custom pitman arm from sky-manufacturing and had it reamed for the chevy draglink TRE which is .040 bigger than the rest of the chevy TRE's. I also had a high pressure custom steering line made to go from the power steering pump to...

    hatched91 going from leafs to coils

    haha. I sent the kit back. I'm going with a toyota IFS box and a pitman arm from sky-manufacturing. They sell one that is reamed to fit the draglink TRE from Parts Mike's TRE kit. That way it's bolt on the steering box, weld up the draglink, and combine steering shafts to work. It should work...

    hatched91 4.0 5spd to v8

    well after getting my alternator harness off of the 4.0, i unwrapped it and found that the only difference is there is 1 extra plug on the 4.0 alternator harness. I just cut off the 4 prong , spliced in the 8 prong plug and disregaurded the two extra wires for the plug that is now unused. All...

    hatched91 4.0 5spd to v8

    the only plug that the factory 5.0 engine wiring harness has that doesn't seem to fit up to my body is the alternator harness. I guess the pic that i would need is a picture of the plug that goes from the body and connects to the engine harness near the starter solenoid. The wire comes from the...

    hatched91 4.0 5spd to v8

    damn i was hoping for some responses as to my alternator problem. haha yes i plan to swap in a 4x4 transfer case, i havn't found any in the local boneyards yet. I'll keep it 2wd for now and just run no front driveshaft. I'll swap in the 4x4 case in about a month or so, but since this is my dd, i...

    hatched91 4.0 5spd to v8

    It starts and runs! now here's the issues that i've found. On the harness that goes from the alternator to the starter solenoid, there is a plug that doesn't match up with the plug on the body. Also, there are two plugs on the air box side that have no 5.0 connectors going to them...

    hatched91 going from leafs to coils

    well the gear box barely fits and the steering shaft rubs on the exhaust manifold. This is after cutting up the a/c bracket and removing the compressor. I think i'm just going to go with a toyota power steering box and get a new a/c bracket and retain a/c. I ordered a relocation kit from summit...
