Got It. Well I definitely need to order some Heims then. Was it you that mounted your shocks on your lca? I'm thinking about doing that in the front and wanted to know how it works

Ordered more heims and a new adjustable link mount for my axle. May do a true 3 link if I find room for a unibody mount

No, I didn't do that, nor would I recommend it.

Oh ok well then nevermind. I think im building a true 3rd link. I welded a piece of dom tubing from the inside of one lca mount to the other kind of like a crossmember. Will add strength to the mounts and give me a mounting point for a 3rd link to easily mount. I wont have to much verticle seperation on the frame side but hey maybe it will work. Ill make the mount as high as possible. Heims are coming monday then I can get to work on it.

Good im gonna put them on tomorrow. I re did my upper control arm today with heim joints and no more axle wrap at all and it just feels more stable now. Pretty sweet. But if I like the bilsteins im gonna save for some in the rear and build some hoops for the rear and a brace between the 2 hoops inside the jeep. I think you did that and I liked it. Maybe I can use the brace to actually keep my subwolfer in place aswell lol. That thing has slammed my back window so many times
