I guess I never posted the final pictures in here.
Got the Antirock, the Currie 3" springs, and a pair of 10" travel edelbrocks bnib from a friend.
I've got 4.5" up, and 5" down.
The shock stops the axle right as the spring starts to get loose.
tried to get the same angle as the one above, but I sold the hardtop so it's not exact...
This is with both my toolboxes in the back.
The only weight not in it is a cooler of beverages and 190lbs of dude.
24.5" = front bumper
11.5" = front diff
16.5" = belly
14" = gas tank
10.5" = rear diff
23" = rockers
n/a = rear bumper
95.5" = wheelbase
22" = front hub-fender
21.5" = rear hub-fender
The steering wheel is a hair off, but I've got a buddy who can get it on a rack and tell me if my alignment is spot on or not. "close enough" for now.
Did a little higher speed testing down one of our local washed out gravel roads.
It seems that it doesn't return to center as good as it once was, which made me realize I didn't do a final check on caster at ride height.
But I did test the flex, I'm very happy with my (only) 10" travel shocks.
This was light enough in the left rear that with a little push I could lift the tire off the ground.
The right rear just barely touches the back of the flare, but that bumpstop was more compressed than the front right shown.
Went upstate on Friday. Blew the cap I had on the waterpump where the heater core line goes. So I sat here while a buddy went to Autozone.
Good time for pictures I guess...
We got it fixed in no time, and got back on the trail.
I'm quite pleased with the Spartan up front.
Another stop along the way...
