I'm going out of my comfort zone on this. I'm posting here, hopefully to find those of you that have gone down this road before. Here's what I think my plan is.
High Pinion 30
mostly stock axle mounts (exception being track bar & sway mounts)
WJ knuckles (& pitman?)
crossover steering with custom flipped tie rod
Custom track bar.
I'm looking at double shear frame side mounts. My rough numbers say move the frame side forward 2", and up about 1.5". So I'll need a raised pitman arm, with enough throw to go lock to lock. Research says that a WJ pitman might work.
Here's where it gets hairy (for me at least)
After spending the day staring at the axle at full bump, I've removed the stock track bar mount. I can't see any way that it's in a good spot for what I want to happen, and most seem to agree that 2" of bumpstop is needed to run a decent track bar with it. With 2" of extended bumpstop, there goes wheel travel.
This opens the can of worms. There's no turning back now.
Here's where I'm at. Uppers are hanging there just for quick axle locating.
I'm shooting for spring completion. I have a good bit of the parts assembled, but waiting until the new year for another good sized order.
