Still need to finish 100% welding all my mounts but here's the lowers. They are about 32" long and I'm so tempted to just do it the easy way and go with a radius arm on the passenger side and call it done.

Yea I really need to keep up with my pics. I've been sitting here for an hour just staring at my jeep though trying to decide true 3 link which looks almost impossible to find room for the frame mount or radius arm which will suck until I can get Johnny joints

It all depends bud, personally if you can do it right the first time do it but on the other hand if you need to be driving then go radius arm you can always come back when you have the time to go true 3 link. You said your self it's mostly trails and mud that you wheel so you will be good as gold.

Yea that's what's I'm thinking. I started making the radius arm so we will see what I come up with. I needed to make a poly bushing adjustable so here's what I came up with

Yeah but how far? I'd be concerned about those welds, especially at the frame rail. Too much gap and little penetration on dirty steel it looks like.

The only concern I have as far as strength is the mounts on the frame rail pushing up. I need some kind of gusset in there I know that but I wana get everything mocked up before I go gung ho welding everything. I know what you mean but those welds were before the steel was "dirty" then it rained alot the past couple days. The penetration is actually fairly deep I think. I wish I could use a stick welder but I'm using what I got and trying to work with it. The gap will definitely not be as strong as a good joint but it will still hold I think

Thinking something along these lines for the radius arm. I need to cut the original lca mount off still. Using my saw zall to cut the angle I need on that upper arm is gonna be tricky
