So after more or less all day of measuring stuff,sketching stuff into autocad. I think I have come up with a front crossmember with revised suspension mounts that after I convert to a twin A arm suspension and coil over it should theoretically have 11.5" of front wheel travel with 8.25 of up travel and 2.75" of down travel.I could have better down travel if I wanted to run control arms that were flat at ride height,but I like some ground clearance. Clearancing the body enough for 31" tires to travel up that far ,however, might be a bit of a kicker.For now though the plan is to lay the foundation for long travel, and get it rolling with the stock struts while I collect the coilovers and other bits for long travel.On the plus side, the revised suspension geometry should make it so that the ea81 axles live a long life at the 1.5-2" of suspension lift it will end up running.
