Done!



Perches, shock mounts, tubes, and brake line tabs.



Tubes



Brake line tabs



Most of my welds turned out pretty good. I had you spot on the tube that was welding pretty crappy.



But most were decent

I would cut those spring perches shorter as long as they are they can limit flex. Just my .02

Im going to leave them long. I like the stability it gives the axle on the springs.

Got it on all 4 tires finally!



All I'm waiting on now is a rotor, caliper, yoke adapter, and run a few brake lines.

More pics

I decided to mount the brake hose brackets on the top of the axle so that I have more line for down travel.



At full droop



I also moved the shock mounts up do I have more down travel.




At ride height. Looks about perfect to me.



Another pic of the spring plates. I'm very proud of them for some reason. Lol



I wanted to be sure that the perches wouldn't go anywhere so I welded as much as I could on the inside to.

I set mine almost exactly like yours I had soft factory springs and I had axle wrap like crazy
I put in 4 degree shims that helped alot but still had problems when under a load and torqueing
If you have problems with your yoke I have the tools to do a hack and tap eliminator I can loan you or help depending on times
I put on a traction bar and that took care of most of the problems
