How many self locking nuts do you have from the kit? I know a few of them thread into the box itself.

Yeah, practice is the key. I've been fortunate that alot of the projects I've done so far include a little here and there, so it keeps me practicing. Thanks And hope to see some of your projects with the Lincoln.

It came with one that is actually for a small bolt made for the anti sway bar bracket. The other two were not part of the bracket unfortunately. The top two long bolts are the ones I need them for. The bottom 4 re use the threads in the frame and the threads in the box. I'll pick some up at Home Depot or ace and be done with it. I poured all the stuff out of the bag on my work bench, so I'm positive I didn't misplace them. May take half a day off Thursday or Friday to work on it. Getting ancy with it being in pieces and multiple projects going at one time.

Got the lock nuts from ace hardware and finished up mounting the new MORE steering relocation bracket. Still can't get the steering shaft to meet up with the box so it either needs to be extended or a new one is needed.

Also got the shackles and new springs put back on. The new hangers and the boom shackles actually should work better in not letting my springs invert again. Slow progress but its coming along.

Next is to start setting up spring perches, shock mounts, and sway bar brackets on the new xj d30.

Got everything measured for the spring perches. Tacked them in to place. Shock mounts should be tricky though with the lower c gusset. Haven't decided what I'm going to do with them yet.

Close up of the driver side perch. And also the bottom plate for the dynatrac u bolt flip. Drilled new holes to go with moving the axle forward one inch.

Looking good. Take a piece of cardboard and make a little cut out to fit the contour of the tube and gusset. Then transpose that to the shock mounts and weld them on.

What do your mounts look like anyway?

I'll get a picture of them, I have two kinds. Good idea on the cardboard. I'll have to try that. I thought about just welding them up higher to avoid all the angles. Id have to relocate my uppers, install new ones I mean, and probably still get new shocks also. But don't need to spend more money right now, so I'll try the cardboard.

Ok so I've finally had some time to get back at it. This morning I've installed the rock lock sway bar. I had to modify the plastic bushings that insert into the cross brace on the frame, but it fits good. Next step is to weld on shock mounts to axle and finishing welding the spring perches. I'll have to place the axle under the jeep before I can fabricate some tabs for the sway bar to attach to.

More progress, so I got my shock mounts modified and welded on. I also finished welding the spring perches. After that I got the axle under the jeep, and fabricated some sway bar mounts. Welded them up good and removed the axle back out from under the jeep. So next thing is to paint the axle and diff cover and fill it with fluid, and bolt it in. From there it should be simple to install new shafts, new hubs, brakes, etc.

Forgot to mention that I may be buying new front shocks. Because I made it easy on myself when welding up the shook mounts, I lost 3 inches of length. So my thoughts are to buy the MORE offroad hoop extensions, and either modify my shocks at the top or buy new ones that have the top eye instead of a stud. I should fave up my own hoops like many on here, but I don't have a tube bender, so if anyone has any ideas let me know?

Im a big fan of the WFO hoops. I run them. They're pure BEEF and are also cheaper than the MORE's.
