Finally got all the mount holes drilled to the right bolt size.


I had to shave a bolt head to allow it to fit pass the shock mount


Axle goes in tomorrow

I got the axle in but ran into an issue with one of my upper control arms so I'll wait on cycling the suspension



I couldn't take the center ring out to regrease the bearing

Called RC and got a replacement jonny joint. Thankfully these arms are only temporary I have all new custom JJ arms for my 4 link

I'm going to have to figure out a way to use the stock e-brake cables I have on the 8.8 if not I'll get the kit from ECGS

Got the BL and MML lift in




Not much trouble from the install besides having to file down a few mounts to fit the BL. The motor mounts went in without any issues at all, tough working on the driver side with all lines being there. I didnt get a chance to take any pictures from the install.


Back on all fours. I just need to adjust my shock mounts. A quick grind of and reweld should cover it.

Very nice ! The extra clearance is going to let you get even further into trouble

Today I got the shock mounts fixed and got my ebrake cable setup up.

Only thing left is my pinion angle and now have a noise coming from my rear. Sounds like something is scraping my brake pads. It increases with speed so that might be the problem area.
