    This is what I haven't figured out yet. I want to keep it cheaper, but I have to do something with steering. $1500 for high steer is out of the question. Low steer for now would be fine but I have to figure out how to do it. I have no ideas at this point. You can see it used to have a track bar for some reason.

    Why is it going to take $1500 for high steer? Am I just that disconnected that I don't know prices?

    Steering.............. well..............

    Anyway, the anti-wrap bars force the pinion to tip every time the suspension moves. Actually, any anti-wrap setup does but this is worse since it doesn't allow the front half of the spring to stretch as it flattens out. At the very least, you need to put some rubber bushings in there. I spent quite a bit of time laying out different designs trying to do something similar because I like the location. But, you really needs something that follows an arc while not allowing for axle rotation.

    Maybe you posted it and I missed it. What are the axle specs? Lockers, ratios, etc?

    Also, what are the orange tubes for?

    Evidently yea. It's a ball joint 60 so high steer seems to cost more.

    I know what you mean Jim. I came to the same conclusion about the wrap bars not allowing the front of the spring to get longer. Others use this style with good success but I don't know about it. There are brackets and a cross member already there for a traditional anti wrap bar with a shackle.

    Gears for both are 5.13's spooled. 2002 ford front d60. Not sure on rear. I have yet to figure that out.

    Makes sense now why you were asking about metric axles now. Although a Chev 1 ton TRE set on that thing would definitely net you some inches in your steering.

    If they look like your standard 14B, D60,D70 rear hubs they are full float

    If they look like your 8.8 they are semi float.

    How do you teach auto shop without this knowledge?

    hahahaha I though there was something different with the 14 bolt. Never noticed a one ton axle that didn't have hubs like this.

    High steer can also be a bitch with a SOA as the spring packs are in the way of a straight tie rod. Linking it will make it easier.

    i just realized why you bought this jeep. it has nothing to do with you wanting a yj. and it has nothing to do with it being a good start but needs to be reworked.













    you bought it for the wheels. you like the ones on paws II and needed and 8 lug set.

    hahahaha

    Funny Ben.


    Anyone notice how the track bar was mounted? Go back and look at the mounts and see if you can spot the problem.

    Also I just found out the steering stabilizer is actually a RS9000 adjustable SHOCK.

    Shock Mounts: Why are lower shock mounts mounted so high on the axle? That won't allow for much shock length.

    Track Bar: First off, parallel to drag link, not perpendicular. Secondly, who uses a track bar with leafs?

    Steering: I like how the Tie Rod actually dips down. That will protect your axle tubes and diff cover from dangerous rocks!

    Front Shackle reversal: The front of it needs to be addressed, notice the bar going between them is bent. This seems like it would be an indication of other issues. Can you get a better pic of the rear shackle mount of the front spring?
