1-tons, 35 spline outers, ARBs, Cage arms, 5.13...I'm seeing lots of $$$ flashing before my eyes. Money well spent, though. I'm sure you're gonna be pumped when it's all done. What's the plan for tires and wheels?

you'd better wait to burn it on then. There isnt much clearence when at full lock on my 90 KP, not sure if the 78/9 axles have longer steering arms or not, but the tie rod pivots in and out. Its out furthers at center, and closest at either full lock. The other issue then becomes that the rams are 8" stroke, which means the mounting bracket on the tierod will end up about at the diff, which will leave very little room.

if the track bar mount was going to be more on top of the tube, it would work better, but it appears you are going to put it forward????

Looks great man!

I would have liked 5.13's or 5.38's too but my C6 already has me running at 2900 rpm's at 60 mph with my 4.88's. I would wait on the ram mount. I finally have mine where I want them to be on the third try. You need to have all the parts ready to check for clearances before you get ahead of yourself.

I'm sure i'll see this in person sometime soon at a meet. Good luck. :beer
