project 94 replacement
« on: Jan 18, 2011, 08:01:37 PM »
well since i got my 81 stolen i've been looking for a replacement. i ended up deciding on a pretty well built 94 regular cab shortbox with the 22re. so here's what's already done and what i'm planning to do, i'll post some pics either later tonight or tomorrow.
what's already done:
SAS with an 83 solid axle that's been rocked so it has a better pinion angle for its height.
63 inch rear springs with 7 leaves for some reason.
4 inch lift cj-7 springs front, equals out with about 6 inches of lift or a tad more
crossover high steer with a drop pitman arm.
yukon 5.29s front and rear both are open.
w56, single case.
custom front bumper.
35x12.50x15 cooper discovery stt with alloy rock crusher wheels.

my plans:
lower it about 3 inches with a custom RUF pack and taking out as many rear leaves as i can.
arp steering studs
move the front axle forward 3-5 inches
rock the steering box back and use a flat pitman arm.
extended brake lines.
possibly a new front axle housing with factory pinion angle.
possibly dual cases factory gears in both.
long travel front driveline.
heavy duty rear driveline.
custom tube rear bumper.
custom tube rock sliders.
custom transfer case crossmember.
rear disk brakes.
front and rear diff armour.
lockers and longs down the road

That's about all i can think of now but i'm sure there's more that i'm just forgetting

Well my week was freaking busy. Worked on the truck a little just normal maintenance though. Didn't get any pics yet, but got some parts in. Extended brake lines, steering box brace, flat pitman arm, arp studs. Looking for some rear springs before i start the teardown.

Looks good sorry about the other one getting swiped.  I agree with you that axle from the looks of the picture needs pushed forward if you like your fenders.  Good luck and I will keep an eye out for the other rig

here's how it sits at ride height now, as you can see the front needs to be lowered.

alright finally started to work on my truck. (mostly cause i got harassed by the police.) so i'm going to lower it about 4 4inches, hopefully get done this weekend. doing RUF and have to redo the steering too. here's what i got done today. got most everything cut off and taken off. there are cutting of the spring hanger so i can move it forward. the last on is about where i want my axle to sit at ride height (that's not ride height though), maybe not quite as far out.

got almost everything on the front end done today. still need to do shocks and get a front driveline made but i need to install my duals before that. so anyways here's how my it sits at ride height, axle is 4" forward, it's a 107" wheelbase now. also to the bottom of the front spring hanger it's 24"

Drove it around today a bit. Still need front shocks. But after the springs settled the hanger sits 23.5" off the ground

so i got all my shocks on (Bilstein 5125s) and went next door to check if my suspension clears and to see what i need to trim, so here's some poser pics.


i need to make a shackle spacer up front so i can get more droop without my shackle hitting my frame. my tie rod clears where i notched my frame so im happy about that.




the last pic is at full stuff showing what i have to trim, tire will be a little less stuffed once i do bumpstops but still need to trim so i can turn at full stuff.

So finally worked some more on my truck, put it my other front axle, ss brake lines etc. The old axle looks like a smiley face, so I gusseted up the new axle, also played with the springs, can max out my front 12" shocks now. So on with the pics.


Old axle out

New axle in

And a couple flex shots, wasn't maxes in these pics but didn't have a taller hill to flex on
