Well got the tie rod done up today. I wanted to have the Tierod on top of the knuckles but there are clearance issues with the track bar bracket. The pass side will get double sheared with a high steer arm.









diff cover clearance at full lock.

Got all my hubs and rotors back form machining. Thanks JP5 for the awesome work. Now i can run the 6 on 5.5 wheels.



The new rotors are from a tacoma so an additional steel spacer had to be machined to make up the offset.

while all the hubs were at the machine shop I decided to upgrade the studs


Top new longer 14 bolt studs that are now on all 4 corners
Middle Stock 14 bolt stud
Bottom Stock F350 stud



Test fit in the wheel



I had to slightly clearance the new stud to fit now with the smaller bolt pattern

Need to com up a bit in the back

looks like it will be close if i outboard the coilovers. So I might run a 1/2 spacer and that will give me a bit more clearance as well as almost perfectly match the front track width.

No need to figure it out. Proven on those knuckles and used on lots of JK swaps. Plus it'll match everything else.

Subbed. Awesome thread. If only. My wife is ready to shoot me because I keep showing her builds like yours and all she thinks about is the money, even though I'm usually the budget guy.

Well I have decided to go a different direction on the steering. I should have no issues clearing the after market diff cover. These have 1 1/4 shanks so ill be able to also beef up the tie rod and drag link as well.
