I haven't been on here very much before now, so my original suspension build wasn't posted here. A few years ago I built a midarm with a triangulated rear, and a 5-link front. Always meant to build a proper 3-link with a more robust axle mount, but was hoping I'd have a more robust axle
I wasn't able to put what I wanted into the Jeep, so here I am, with a V8, D30, and polishing that thing up.
Finally got around to installing the extra parts I've had for 3 years.
Got 6.5 inches of bump in the front. Ordered some 12 inch travel Blsteins to match the rears.
Full bump, the trackbar joint just tucks up between the diff and coil perch.
Upper link is a recycled 1.5 solid rod from a friend's old Rock Krawler 3-link (junk, BTW), butted them up to some Currie joints, sleeved with 1.75x0.120 HREW. Tucks up between the starter and a-pipe.
Also had to trim out the motor mount some.
None of this would be possible without cardboard.
What do you think of this upper mount tab?
