YEah Im just not sure exactly what it is.. HA!

I just went off what Dave told me. They need to be angled forward for geometry, plus I didn't want to cut into the inside of the tub, so thats where they ended up fitting.. Also if you look at all the desert race trucks and buggies they are all angled forward to help absorb stuff better, and to add to travel IM sure they know what they are doing...

Yeah I don't know anything about it but they just looked a bit more angled than you usually see. I guess test the full range of motion before burning it in and you should be fine.

OK back to some tech.....


The upper rear coil over mounts are now completely burned in..
and the drivers side is now trimmed as shown in pics...
Left to do on the rear is

Weld in the lower links
install my new longer upper brake line
fill coil overs with nitrogen
bolt on the rear shaft
install the buck wild racing sway bar
clean up the fenders
trim the rear cross member on the inside ( touches tire on full tuck)
gusset coil over mounts

Not bad I say not bad....

Question, in pic #4 the shock tabs are on the side of the shock... Wont that bind during articulation? Shouldn't it match the way the bottom mount is? Just curious....

With the heim mis alignement washers it gives me the perfect amount of movement not to bind on full tuck. I took my highlift and flexed it just the be sure...

Sweet, although I maintain the right to change my mind until I actually see pictures on the trail instead of your driveway

Remind me where you are going with this build - is the top off temporarily or are you going to go topless now?

Somehow I think the look would seem more natural with ST doors so you could run the open window-free look but it looks great anyway. Do you have glass in them there doors? I'm not sure any of the pictures have shown side windows...

Maybe I'm jumping the gun and it will be clear once it's complete, but I don't understand how this works and why you need it. If you can explain that would be great otherwise I'll wait patiently to see the end result

With the spool and coil overs all the way around and the light spring rates, when i turn it force articulates it self and tends to have a decent amount of body roll on the street. This will massively control that..
