i know. i've got to put braided lines on the front and upgrade to an 80 series master cylinder so when I have those ready to go in i will pull the axle out and redrill the perch so i only have to bleed my brakes once. truck won't be back on the road till mid april anyways. not theres any trouble with driving it on the street how it is.

found this on pirate
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=761084&highlight=lift+highsteer&page=4

and also look into these to clear teh tierod better
http://www.4crawler.com/4x4/ForSale/MotorMount.shtml#MotorMount

I myself could raise my motor about 1" with out a body lift but my tranny/tcase is another story

and these to relocate your axle I bought a pair and they work great

Square.

i would like too but i dont want to go through the trouble and have to do it again when i get duals. plus it will get driven a bit with the hubs locked. I've contemplated it many times.

I moved mine forward 2" and just took 2 female slips and made one longer one works great

got any pictures? how did you keep it even?  i have a spare ds sitting in my bed right now. this sounds like a pretty good idea. Are you concerned about your welds breaking?

My square shaft is good to about 45 before the vibes get too bad to go faster. For a $25 shaft tahts not too bad.

So who are you all using for flat pitman arms? I am thinking about doing this, but the Sky arm I have been looking at has had some strange reviews concerning it being too short. Are you guys making your own frame plates/steering box mounts? Or buying them? Just curious. Thanks.
