The 3 link is just plain awesome. We have 8.5" of vertical separation between the upper and lower but all that non binding goodness took its toll on the TXT trackbar and in order to get full compression and uptravel, something will have to give and it won't be the diff or the frame. We could ignore it and bumpstop it so as to not to have to deal with it but I want it done right. We decided this morning after cycling the front end that we will take the trackbar at the frame mount, rotate it on its side and move it forward. We will then take the Johnny Joint I rigged into the axle side, remove it, drop the mount down and use a heim joint so as to provide clearance... you can see what we are dealing with in the second pic. This will also align the draglink to the trackbar. Most likely I will have some bumpsteer with the short trackbar but that will have to do for now.
Now... with respect to whoever complained about this not being a Savvy build... well you just weren't paying attention. I never said it would be. I am relying on Blaine's knowledge and skill in rectifying a number of issues I had with the TXT suspension while adding Savvy equipment where I can. The first thing to go was the Genrite 24 gallon tank with a stock tank with a new Savvy skid along with a 1.25" body lift taking its place. I gained a ton of clearance here and we are now set up for getting Savvy Underarmor into place once we get the suspension figured out.
As for the rest of the build.... well, we will progress as funds allow. The last pic clearly shows what I am dealing with... you can see that stupid long arm belly skid still holding up the rear end with the mocked up 3 link in place.
This work does not pop out of thin air...there is both skill and budget involved here. I had alot of crap that needed to be corrected and I trust Blaine implicitly in helping me get it done.
