Those lower shock mounts are stout as ****. May have to change over to those.

Very true, I was going to see if I could make some mounts that worked without having to go that way first.

I use rubber sleeve clamps and self tapping screws for my brake line mounts. Works great, looks pro.

Those lower shock mounts are beefy as hell. I run coilovers on those mounts and no issues so far. It's a pain in the *** to get the CO on and off though.

I can't wait to get them on. Excited to see the difference the 7100s make for Mojave.

Not gonna have the time/money to do a tire carrier before then by the way.

Kevin sent me these pics of the axle. It's all cleaned up and ready for welding.







They got the gussets cut out for the knuckles. Gonna brace the C's too.

Poly Performance inner sleeves
Gussets on the knuckles/C's
Currie JJ kit
Axle tubes welded to the center

Should be a decently stout axle when done!

That looks really nice! Now you've got me considering the same thing since I'm in the middle of an HPD30 build at the moment... With the inner axle tube set up is there an axle tube seal kit that will work with that? I purchased the Alloy USA tube seals for mine, but looking at them and the inner sleave on yours there's no way they would work. I've seen some nasty stuff inside of unsealed axle tubes on one of my Jeep club members D30 when he pulled out his shafts to replace the u-joints, and I wouldn't want any of that stuff inside mine.

Not with these. Check out Off Road Evolution's Magnum 44 sleeves. They have a built in greasable seal.

I guess I'll just run what I have for now, and if I have problems with the housing or tubes bending then I might look into a truss and inner sleeves.
