Your only doing a few inch SA lift right? Keep steering and pitman arm stock, move over the stock frame side trackbar mount for the Currie TJS trackbar and you should be good. If you want to garentee no bumpstopping then modify the front upper shock towers and outboard the rears and your done.
You do that on yours, if that's what you feel is the way to go. The ship has sailed for me on stock steering. you have a lot of opinions on what I'm doing wrong. That's fine. I stand to learn something from everyone.
A - yes. the irony is not lost on me. I cut the frame side track bar bracket off so I could gain uptravel over a "stock" or bolt-on setup. Now the axle end of the bar is hitting the passenger side of the frame, instead of the cover hitting the frame side. Trial and error. I'm learning a lot sipping a cold beer and staring at this. The other side of that is, I'm likely going to need to limit uptravel to keep 35" tires out of the stock fenders until I come back around to cutting them off, or whatever.
B - Sway bar brackets are long gone. Well I cut them off for reuse. See pictures. They will come back to party once the others have fallen into place.
My coil brackets are 1/4" plate (maybe 3/16"?) flat on the axle tube. They are what they are, I burned them home yesterday. If I had to guess, they're 1"ish lower than stock.
Thanks for hanging with me.
Here is the setup at what should be close to ride height.
14" from the top of the coil to the bottom of the perch, 7" of clearance between bumpstops, which I'll need to limit to 3".
I guess it's Blaine that invented this location for the trackbar - Imatation = flattery.
It's just tacked, once I stare at it a while longer I'll burn it home too.
Here's full compression.
Subtract the same 4" of added bumpstop, and this will be sitting on the stops.
It looks like there's more room than there is, once you turn the wheel to the right, it raises the drag link a bit, if I go much higher it'd hit. I might bend the drag link a bit, I can get a bit more uptravel if I do. Another 1/2" or so then the tie rod hits the pitman arm.
Here's what might be full drop, but the awesome PVC pipes pulled apart, so it might bind a little before this...
Almost 12" between the stops, subtract the same 4", and it looks like 8" of travel.
