Don't worry to much the track bar will hold it in place, and the Hiems will take up some of the slop

Sorry I have no pics but I did finish the 2 lower arms and have the springs sitting on the coil buckets and the jeep on its weight. I need a 3rd link before I can put the wheels on because the axles on stands right now. So here's my dilemna. I really don't have room for a true 3rd link from the frame. I'm thinking about making a radius arm on the passenger side until I can come up with something better. What do you guys think?

I love mine because it was a tank up to this point and I didn't care about it so I didn't get mad if anything happened to it lol. My favorite vehicle of mine as far as reliability was my 88 f150. That thing was ****ing great. Got it for free in good running order and never had to fix a thing on it for 2 years. It was a straight 6 with a t18 with a granny low first gear. That thing would spin as long as you could hold the pedal in first gear. Slow as dick in any other gear. I jumped it so hard I cracked the windshield landing it. Used to race it on Dirtbike tracks and ball through power lines. I miss that thing. But back to my jeep I'm going to put the 3rd link on today after I figure out how and where to mount it or do a radius arm.

Have a buddy that's had about 5 cars including a 2000 mustang GT, he got a 95 f150 about a year ago(was supposed to be temporary) and still has it. We raise hell in that thing it's slightly beat up 5 speed I6 250k on the clock still running strong.
