Looks great! Couple of questions, Is he going to run/need a sway bar? And werent you going to mount the shocks on the high steer arms? Oh, and what brand are those arms? I'm buying mine this week and was looking at ballistics.

there will eventually be a sway bar in the back, it will do pretty well just the way it is right now, if he plans to drift corners at 50 then I'd suggest the sway bar asap.

the shocks on the steering arms were an early thought and after getting everything as low as we did it just wasn't going to happen even with the 12" travel. they would have just about been through the hood and leaned in so much to avoid tire contact that it just didn't make ans sense to follow through with it. they ended up being mounted on the outside of the lower control arm mounts with the double shear piece welded to the inner c. this barely clears the brakes but it does package nicely.

the arms are from parts mike, they are the spring-less arm's that I had to ream from the other side and also put the chamfer on the top because one arm didnt have it done. :rolleyes:

more pictures after I'm done writing my 5 page paper for my finals tomorrow :lol:

Would you suggest his arms? The ones I was looking at were springless too and I will be using rod ends so the taper isnt a big deal to me. Looking good and good luck on the paper.

Jim was telling me about this on the phone the other day, and I was thinking he meant a few brackets hung a roll bar spreader; I guess I had the wrong picture in my head.

just curious, why angled in toward the center and not out along the tub? I'm guessing there will be some sort of rack mount on them sometime?

Jim wanted them to help keep things in place in the back, he used a net back there previously and this should help keep things stored on the wheel well, on the wheel well.

it also provides an "oh shit" bar for the rear passengers in the future.
