It was critical to keep the axle flat, so that the caster angle stayed true to 6 degrease. I was carful to check this as I mocked up the front axle

After the first mock up I noticed the jeep did not have enough up travel in its suspension to give a comfortable ride. I moved both the front, (pictured here) and rear spring hangers down, again making sure the axle stayed level.

Once the front was done it was time to move on to the rear.

I stretched the rear about 7 inches, this also improved departure angle,

My tie rod and drag link was to long so I cut out what I needed to, beveled the edges, sleeved the tube with the only thing I could find, and welded it up. No I am not a welder, but I think it will be strong enough to hold together.

Dosent look like much, but I didn't have much in me today. I don't feel well most of the time. Anyways I took the rock sliders steadily brushed on gel paint stripper, let it soak lightly scrape, brush on lightly scrape 5 times. Then pressure washed, a now plain steel. I will DA them to ruff them up and the etching primer and raptor coat them
