Do you know what the measurements from spring eye to center pin is? Are they the rear springs? Thanks
No but I can get it for you. These are the springs made for the front application.
The I put in the new, un-clogged grease fittings and yanked on the new boots. Bam! fresh drag link with no death wobble!Remember the end closest to us in the bottom photo goes in your j-arm. The other end with the socket closer to the end of the drag link goes on your steering box.I know nobody cares since we all use hi-steer but I thought maybe some poor guy just wanting to maintain his old junk might find this useful one day. The stock steering setup does in fact have enough range of motion to work with improved articulation as long as you remove the torque rod and don't lift over about 2". At that low of a ride hi-steer gets hard to fit in between things anyway. A little taller and you can do the j-ball flip, but hi-steer gets pretty superior after about 4" of lift and over 10" of shock travel in my experience.
Appreciate the drag link tech, as I'm actually doing almost the same on my '82. I got the rebuild parts from Toyota, buying each piece individually, so I'm sure I spent much more than you did.
Greasable shackles would be better yet but they cost money.
Wow. You put the '80 on marlin.....rexy is get I getting famous!
I hope thats a root beer there!
Probably some weird foaming coffee
