Oh and things took a turn the other day. I'm building a mid arm 3 link for the front and going with coils. Lol already made my lca's and I have 21 more feet of tubing to build another link and I'm gonna build some sliders out of the same Dom and if I have enough some tube doors or something else cool.

A comp cut and leaf flip would look really good for the rear.

Glad you decided on a 3 link

Ok so I ordered Barnes4wd coil and link mount combo brackets and I'm gonna use those and for my upper control arm I have 2 rubber bushings so I need to make a link tower for a 3 inch bushing. I've never done anything coil suspension related so my first go around will probably be a fail and ill have to work out some corks but we will see. I'm making a cross member out of 3x3 angle iron because I have alot of it so I cut that out today and tacked 2 4 inch pieces of angle to it sideways to go on the unibody. I'm deciding if I should just weld it or bolt it. It's going to go right in front of the tranny crossmember. I didn't feel like making a tranny crossmember so I'm just making one in front of it. Plated the middle section of unibody in 3x3 angle iron so that should help with some reinforcement. But I really don't want to drill through all that so I think I'll just weld this crossmember on and if I ever need to remove it ill just cut it off and make a new one since ill probably have a better idea by then anyway. Has anybody done a 3 link before that can give me some advice on where to mount the upper arm on the passenger side? The exhaust is going to make it tricky

Got my coil mounts today from brown Santa so hopefully pics of the front end to come. Waiting on my sye to come in and I still need to figure out what front brake lines to use. I got a 12" longer than stock braided stainless steel line for the rear and I need to make the hard lines but that's easy.

Axle just sitting there right now. But the coil/link mounts are tacked in place. I don't know how to figure out where to put the unibody control arm mounts. Anybody have advice?
