very nice clean job... question, is 5 3/8" the exact difference between the fullsize and EB long shafts or did you have a custom long shaft made?
Also in the second to last pic you posted the track bar looks awfully close to the diff, are you worried about them hitting on up travel or is it just the picture that looks that way?
again good job... :)

OK still haven't started. I have another question though.

How much travel are your shocks? I have a line on some 13" travel Ranchos, but I don't know if that is enough and I can't tell until I get there.

Daemon,
I ran out of money for a while, but I am back in buisiness. I got some 9012s. My axle is completely preped. I just need toget spacers and some misalignmnet bushings. Did you use 3/4" bolts for your steering or did you use the bushings that neck down the bolt size? I went to my local machine shop to get some, but they only had the neck down style and looked at me like I was a moron when I asked about the other type. I saw these type on poison spyder. Is this what you used?

(Far Right)? What height of bushing did you use? Did you use 4 of them? 2-Pitman arm 2 knbuckle, both draglink ends?

Do you think I could get by with no drop pitman arm? Thanks for the help!

I used 3/4" bolts, had to drill the pitman arm and knuckles. I used spacers(pictured on far left) on both sides of the heims to prevent binding with the bolt head and pitman arm. For the knuckle I used the same spacers and added another (pictured second from the left) to clear the drag link. So, 4 total of the small spacers and 1 pictured next to it.

I would consider getting a drop pitman arm.
