Don't get that thing hot or you may be pulling it for a gasket.  I'm very interested to see how all this goes.  I'm thinking about it also.  Please post some pics if you do it. :beerchug:

That's about right. I think you have just a bit more lift than I but that's about it. My box ill be higher up and farther forward.

What frame brace did you use? or make?

That's my exact spring/shackle set up. I just bought my hi-steer so I'm glad to see that this is possible!!!

4x4yota, I think you may be missing a bolt.  :cheese:

yeah I had to run to get on I couldnt find the one I had
glad I could help

the only issue I have is I need longer bumpstops since Im useing the stock shock mounts  the shocks Im ussing to acomidate the travel bottom out with 3" of up travel and the spring contacts the pitman arm within the same so I need 3-4" longer bumpstops

How do the draglink and tierod act under compression and droop? Any hitting or interference? \

And how is your steering? How bad is the angle on your steering shaft?

More pic of the exact box location etc would be appreciated. Your spring set up is exactly what I am running...really happy with it so far.

Ok thanks. That gives me a good idea. Did you have to cut anything up front to make it fit in that location?

That's a good setup you have there.  You'll still have room to drill the perches to move the axle forward later. :greengrin:

:shhh:

I had to remove my front bumper and trim about .25" from the bracket (not big deal) and had to cut the track bar bracket off to clear for my .25" plate but it was a easy full days work with the right tools... I made my own IFS bow mounting kit for $15 out of 2, 4x8" .25" steal plate and sch40 pipe

Looks good.  I wouldn't get too worried about a drop hanger but a replacement for the stock spring hangers I can get behind 100%. :greengrin:


Is it just me or are the splines on your steering box twisted?..   :eek:

I spotted that too after you said something....WTF?  I've never seen that before on a steering box, but then I guess they get that way before the sector shaft breaks.

Why do all the instructions say 0.5" to 0.75" clearance between the tie rod end and the frame?  I wonder if it is for oil pan clearance on the drag link for when it is flexed out?  It's not like the tie rod end of the pitman arm is gonna move any closer to the frame when the mounting brackets are welded in.

Movement of the tie-rod end when the passenger side moves up and down?

If it's needed, that's when I will notch the frame.

4x4yota, check your wording again. It seems to be a bit off.

I would change the box, just to be safe. I think there is one for sale on the board right now.
