ZJ long arm suspenion quiz time ;)
So, being the creative guy with a newly acquired welder that I am and considering that the '93(Weezy) has CAs & bushings that are falling apart, I've decided to build my own lift kit.
Plus, I need more welding practice... Hahahahaha
I'll be taking the 3" BB out of the '94(George) and returning him to stock configuration. I plan on using the BB in Weezy, but with her Upcountry springs, I'll be in the neighborhood of 4" of lift.
Too much for stock CAs. Does anyone have(or know someone who does have) a ZJ 4" LA lift that they could give me the CA measurements off, from bushing center to bushing center, upper and lower, front and rear?
I figure 1/8" thick tubing should suffice?? Track bars would be made of the same tubing with adjusters at one end.
Possibly 1/8"x1.5"x1.5" square tubing with another 1/8"x1.5" strip welded to the bottoms of the lower CAs, just for a little extra protection.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
