Just let it go, it's very ovious you just do not understand
just to clear it up, a lift does not lower the suspention it raises the body hince the words BODY LIFT

I need to take pictures and have my twin make up a web page.
It is not overly complicated to build the lift, takes a lot of dry fitting and tacking, cutting, measuring etc.
My lift has open 6 inch channel.. that way it has two bolts, one going into the top (body), and the other going into bottom (susp.). that way you will not have super long bolts breaking and flexing..
oh, all the bolts and nuts in my brat are courtesy of Henry Ford and the Norfolk F150 plant
Anyways.. Hassey is the originator, and if you have ideas that you think will improve it, then all the better, but as he said, you can go to far unneedlessly, as he has no flex, I have none, and I am going to do the coil over conversion this weekend.
anyways.. my input on this debate.

DOH!!! Sorry to put a bee in your bonnet with my question. I just made the mistake of assuming that by "stock position" you meant where Fuji put the motor and tranny but what you meant by "stock position" was "stock position relative to the components I have just moved." LOL.
As to whether I get it. I get it as often as I can Thats obvious. I am a parent after all

Honestly this is the last thing. I was last refering to your answer of Adams post. He used "stock location" as a reference to the relation of the body and motor. Your response to Adam is what I quoted. The motor doesn't move. I hope you can see where I got that idea though. Have a great night. See you in the rocks and dirt

And as for the body portion of my lift, it is basicly the Hassey lift with a few mods that I added. I had to notch and plate the front to clear the ER27 and I plated the inside of the blocks to stiffen them and provide mount points for my adjustable sway bars.

on the way home from my buds sat. night, the back end just broke!!, I mean it slammed down into the body... the torsion bar apparently broke.. it also broke the driveshaft.. in the middle of the downtown tunnel in portsmouth!!!!.. sparks coming out the back and everything!!!
well, the tunnel people are cool.. the came in and got a tow truck, first they had to turn it around cause they could not tow from front.. then the had to tow me out backward up the tube..
they parked me in a safe place.. bill and I made some strong rump roast brackets.. the strongest I have ever seen for a coil over conversion..
we installed them, but two of the lifting blocks broke.. and the driveshaft broke.. we limped it to his house..
anyways... it was a little fun and excitement!!!
Oh, Hassey... I can now attest, I broke a support,, we are gonna redo a couple of the back ones, and firm up a little.. we will take pics.

no, i had a 6 inch on trashwagon5. it was homemade. i took it out because it wasnt straight, i used too thin of metal.
so if you built a 6 inch, and have it now, then you WOULD be the ONLY one with a ea81 6inch, but not the FIRST:D
ant way you go, the only thing that cost me on my lift was saw blades and welding wire. and rent on the building.
but instead of using thru bolts, i used stock suspension bolts to hold one side up to the body, and leftover bolts from other soobs and lug nutz to hold the suspension to the lift
