Also finished putting together the dana internals. took me about 7 times to arrive at where i did, here are my patterns at three spots around the gear, im thinking it looks alright, first one ive ever done myself. got a carrier with a lock-rite already put together from my bros jeep, threw that in, im running 4.56 gears, used all my old outer hub parts mixed from the 78 and the ttb. i have the tie rod/ drag link from the old 78 which im hoping i can use for the sas and then ungrade to some new merch in a few years
after countless hours of searching! ive decided id like to move the coils foward. my question is how much? depending on what the frame looks like behind the ttb bucket im thinking 1.5" foward is solid figure. this would help with my tracbar/crossmember issues and my rear radius arm frame mounts. thoughts?
driveshaft: i was planning on using my stock driveshaft, but with axle relocation and increased lift hieght ive been thinking it might not work out. thoughts?
im hoping to mount the upper coil bracket high on the frame because im running the 78 6" deaver superflex and want to minimize the lift hieght to around 6" inches. talking about the difference in hieght of the 78 and ttb upper coil buckets, im hoping that by mounting the coil higher i can keep my lift hieght to a reasonable ammount. thoughts?
im visioning a rear radius arm mount that stretches from frame to frame and holds both hiem joints, tried to search for some ideas but haven't found much on that. thoughts?
pittman arm concerns: currently i have a dropped pittman arm on my BKO that i put on with a 4" stage 2 BDS lift. i think that should be enough to help with my drag link angles. thoughts?
this week im going to get some radius arm caps and bushings, get my coils and arms bolted on the axle and roll that bad motha under the BKO!!! thanks for the input guys and keep it comin!
