I'll have answers and pics for your questions when I get the driveshaft ack and the alignment finished - hopefully by Friday. But so far, even out of align, the things rides great! There is a little rub on the RA at full lock - that's it.
It had coils, but I cut out the buckets and replaced them. Lining it up wasn't too bad - just measure the axle on both sides to be sure it is straight. I used a plumb-line to determine if the axle was centered and to find the centerline for the new buckets.
What is the axle out of and did it take any modifying to fit, width, ect. And last do you have a write up of the whole process, parts list? I will hopefully be starting the process this summer so i want to get as much info as i can.
I'm not sure what lies ahead - I've been looking at scramblers, broncos, suzukis and so on. There will be another project, just not sure what yet. Who knows - maybe a V8 powered 2 door Montero (found one for about free).
Now that the move is out of the way, I can get back in the game. Not sure what direction - thought about a cj - even thought about a 2door ex and doing another SAS. Need room for the kids to ride and to carry the dive gear. Also - can't go too tall as it needs to get into my garage
