ordered a clocking ring too. i'll be building a flat belly pan as well but axles first. today i'll start tearing out the front axle as i still don't have my brackets to finish up the rear. as of now i have the yj springs in the rear and the 14 bolt sitting under waiting on the brackets.

Hey I just got a set of new stock xj springs on eBay for less than 200 shipped. They have adjustable pins in case you decide to stretch the wheel base a little later....I believe they are exactly the same as the wagoneer springs everyone uses. I'm going soa so I figured I wanted stock springs, and these new were almost the same as used ones.

That's a good deal on the springs. I can't stretch my rear axle backwards as the gas tank will make contact with the axle. My YJ leafs were free and in good shape. The rear is in and here is what I am working on now. I got these frame out riggers and had to modify one for the steering box brace that clamps it to the frame

the front i'm definetly leaving bolt in as the original holes in the frame are sleeved and thats plenty strong. the rear i haven't decided yet if i'll weld them to the frame. as of now the rear has a plate on the other side of the frame clamping the shock towers to it. you think it'll be strong enough not welded?

finally got it out and did the test drive. bolted up the new shocks. bilsteins 5125. no room for reservior so i got these instead. i love them. it took all my strenght and weight to compress them to bolt them in place. rides nice with the stock wrangler springs.

1.5" tubing .25 wall with 3/4" heims with high steer arms. Stock but brand new steering box from oriellys. I have the bars parallel and all day test drive yesterday shows no need for steering stabilizer. I need a front end alignment but will wait as I am about to purchase 36" tires new. My tires now are in worse shape than I thought.

what high steer arms did you use? It looks great. I want to hear more about the shocks when you get the bigger tires on.
