what parts i have:
EJ22 carbied motor
one locked 4.44 diff
one open 4.44 diff(i have an lsd for it, but it may get traded for something even cooler)
low mileage 5spd d/r
suzuki transfer case
6 inch bill omlin monster lift
several of my own lift pieces that i have been constructing to add into the suspension
umm.....thats basically the parts.
i will be adding some pics ,but most of them will be hosted on photobucket.
ok,so far i have started the engine crossmember...seen here
and i redrilled some front hubs so that i could have 6 lug all the way around
then today i started installing the lift for the front,i have the lower pieces inthe struts,and the steering rack crossmember down as well,i mounted some frame rail reinforcement to be able to weld the engine crossmember to something....
steering rack crossmember stuffs^^^^
strut extensions,i am adding some to the top to not only help with camber,but give me just a bit more.
i am still trying to decide how i want to mount the tranny,i left the radius rod plates/tranny crossmember mounts in the stock location as this is where i want the drivetrain to be.
the options at hand are to leave them where they are or lower them with smaller 2 inch lift blocks and run the subframe off of those blocks..and make new radius rods out of the originals with sleeves of schedule 40 or,make some new ones with .120 wall DOM like the big boys do it for their suspensions.
or, to use the 6 inch blocks and just use the radius rods as they are.
i am leaning towards "links",but i do not know if i will be able get the heims quick enough to accomplish it.we shall see.
welp,its official.:lol:cheers, brian
