The problem with 2" tubing is the barrels on JJ's are 2" wide. You risk burning the snap ring groove when you weld.
The problem with JJ's on the frame side of the uppers is they hold the bolt down from the bottom of the tub too far and that tends to screw up your geometry unless you drop the frame side of the lower below the frame another inch or two.
Any more questions?
I'm 100% sure I'll have more questions at some point
My lower bolt will be about 1" below the frame rail, so I think
I'll be ok there. I'm shooting for 4" of separation to start.
That's too bad about the Gen-Right joint - that would have been very simple. They state it's perfect for their 3-link kit, but I've never seen anyone use it and I was suspicious about that. Since it uses about the same size bolt, is it the joint itself that's not strong enough?
