So when is the next trip to Elbe?? :p
You know I was going to PM to see when you wanted to go, I am pretty much ready to go, and I assume you got your rig fixed. there is the work party at bernies on the 17th so maybe the 24 or 1st. work has been busy lately 6 days a week so I will get to the work party in the afternoon, but after next weekend I will have done the required amount of working saturdays for the month.
It won't be long before elbe is slick as snot again.

Oh and welcome to explore forum I don't know if you have been lurking for awhile or not but you will not see what you were not wanting to see on the other forum :D here

What did you use to reinforce the frame when you took out the TTB brackets

not enough to worry about,When I bring the front up 1 1/2" to be level with the back, caster should be about right, on the top end of the scale.

In this picture it seems that your tie rod will hit your trac bar mount when flexed. Does it? And what is the measurement of that trac bar mount below your frame?

The trac bar does not hit the tie rod, when I first put on the trac bar mount I had a factory trac bar that had a bend at the end, and I lined up the trac bar and dranklink to be parrell but when I got the new superlift trac bar they are not in phase by a small bit.
I will take a measurement tonight after I get home

Thanks for the info! Where'd you get that trac bar mount I got one from Broncograveyard and it looks totally different.

Also when you did you drag link measurement, was it from your pitman arm to where it meets the tie rod or all the way just above the knuckle?

My trac bar bracket is a stock 78 tracbar bracket, the truck I got had dual shocks on it and the front shock bracket was part of the trac bar bracket I then added some gussets for strength because it is so much lower than stock

When i ripped out the parts from the bronco I didn't bother grabbing the tra bar mount. Wished I did!

What about the draglink measurement question? Was it from the pitman arm to the tie rod or all the way to the knuckle?

Wow man, did you look at anything? :confused:

1. I don't know if he posted it in here, but he first used the stock driveshafts with a longer slip yoke, but it was a bit short, so he ended up having a new one built for 165 or so.

2. Wild Horses 4x4 5.5" coils

3. Basic SOA

Just an FYI, a newer company called "CAGE Offroad" has a set of 5.5" coils for EB's (same vehicle as the WH) and they're 110 compared to 150 like the WH ones. I've seen flex shots and the CAGE coils really have some nice flex, but it's never been tested with the same setup. They both are supposed to be awesome coils though.

I don't remember which I gave you, I will remeasure tomorrow.

I got my WH springs for I think $90 because when they started getting the springs in the blue color the logo was off centered.
I would be willing to bet that the cage and WH springs are made by the same company

that sure is a lot of rubber... have you considered going with beadlocks??? or even 16 or 17" for that matter? these tires will get a lot of flex when you air-down... looks good though... looks good. :thumbsup:
