The rear hanger can't really move forward any more, so I'm gonna move the front back about a half an inch and cant it backward some to give me a better shackle angle.

The sides on the hanger were already bent in about an inch for the F350 frame. I boxed the frame. There's a few pictures a couple of
Posts ago.

The sky kits a bit expensive but it's worth it. I don't really trust me abilities to build something like that since if it comes apart it'll probably wreck the truck and/or then kill me haha

Frame done and the front axles in as well as shock towers. I was kind of rushing it yesterday so I didn't have time to get that measurement and I kind of forgot.

More pictures later tonight.

Hey man thanks a lot anyways. Grab them tonight if its not to big of a deal. If it is no worries. Also, Do you think it is better to run short bolts on each side of the hanger or run long bolts all the way through and use bushings on the inside of the frame?

Nice work!

Pinion angle looks great. I was more focused on the castor.

I think alot of people would say the shackle angle could really need to change some but I guess if its driving good I wouldn't worry

Not really a thread jack since your doing the zf swap, mike how is your zf treating you?

Heres a stupid question, Im probably going this route with my other bronco, Is the frame boxing really needed? Say if i weld that on the outside, do you see weakness?

The issue with not boxing the frame is that you run the risk of bending your crumple zone. Some people dont box their frames. Some just make a little box like he did. Some people box it all the way back to the crumple zone and under the first body mount. So personal prefrence i guess!
