What do you all think????








I've got the high-steer arms which need to be machined and installed, then I'll clean up that trac bar. Want to see how the angles end up. I've got a drop ptman arm on there now, but may be able to go back to flat when the high-steer is done. 60 came out of a leaf sprung 88 F350 I think.

jus curious that bolt runs thru the housing to your lower coil mounts?
isnt that going to obstruct the axle shaft from turning ????

Where do the radius arms mount? If that bolt goes all the way threw you wouldn't be able to have an axle shaft in there... need pictures from other angles

Im betting that its 2 bolts too. It looks like youre running ttb arms though, which would mean that it would bind up really bad any time it flexed. With no bushing to allow some movement, im betting that youre gonna break either a bolt or a mount.

It's two bolts. One top and one bottom threaded into the C-channel welded to the axle. Did you really think the bolt went all the way through??:histerica This set up was allready put together when I bought my parts truck. I just swapped it to this truck. The lower trac bar mount broke when we were test driving it so that weld job was just a trail fix. Is it better to raise the mount on the axle or lower the mount on the frame to correct the angle??

you will want to try and center your track bar as best as possible to allow for maximum travel. by this i mean, if you put it too low, you'll have contact problems with the differential under flex. if you put it too high, you will have crossmember clearance problems while driving, and you'll experience hard bottoming out. either situation is undesirable, and you would have to move both mounts at the same time to keep proper geometry and locate the track bar in an ideal location

and that driver's side brake line is all over the place.... got anything holding that hard line on?

Moving them both (trac-bar mounts) makes alot of sense. Thanks.:thumbup
Those brake lines are just there to get the thing rolling. I've got stainless braided lines for the whole setup just waiting till the major fab work is done. I'll be welding tabs on to hold every thing tight and out of the way.
