I think I'm going to go the same route you took actually, which shouldn't effect the rear arch of the frame

I think I am going to maintain the short arms, this way I shouldn't have to relocate any mounting points on the frame.

Not sure that'll work out at easily as you think. Doesn't the third side body mount line up with the lower frame mount for the control arms?

I'll have to double check when I head to the shop later. The body mount isn't that difficult to relocate.

For some reason I thought I remember you saying you were going to notch the frame for the springs

I'm relocating the coil buckets on the frame, and then notching the frame for the shocks

I changed the tcase fluid today, and was disappointed in what I found, it was bone dry... Which is weird, it never made any weird noises, and 4WD worked just fine the other day when it was snowing...

I'm going to have to change my rear output seal out on my 241 in the near future as it's leaking slowly so if you take yours apart take good notes! I haven't even looked into it yet

For now I have just filled it. I am going to keep a close eye and see if there is a leak somewhere.....I know I haven't seen any sign of a leak, but then again, I don't know how long it has been empty. Might be a little difficult, since I don't really drive it now
