my 2/3" lift. radius rod blocks??

Recommended Posts

i have my brat mostly lifted. 2 in rear, 2.5 in front.

but i cant figure out how the radius rod lift works out?

 

do i need 2 blocks, 1 per side? with 1 bolt per block?

cuz that is what i was given with my kit. but it seems

like i must need more blocks.

 

can anyone send me a clear pic of that area, on a lifted brat?

 

 

alos, if i am lifting my front body 2.5 inches, does my

steering shaft need extension? or will it work fine stock?

 

pics of front chassis area on lifted brat, please???

the swaybar/radius rod/tranny area. or ANYTHING.

Radius rod mounts with 3 blocks, or at least 1 long w/2 holes and 1 short(per side)

 

Steering shaft will definately need lengthed.

should i NOT keep the sway bar?

 

why wouldnt i want a swaybar?

 

i dont do much crawling. just, you know, 30mph logging road rally.

 

and the occasional curb hop, or 2'x2' ditch crossing. nothing extreme.

 

i do about 90 miles of street driving for every 10 miles of gravel or dirt or mud or snow.

the sway bar really kills wheel travel,so it will ride rougher on logging trails with it on there.

 

just without the swaybar it will handle like an old truck,with a low center of gravity.try it with and without the swaybar and see what way you like best.The swaybar is always the first thing to go on my subarus.

You will probably want to ditch the sway bar. I had to remove mine after my 2" lift simply because it didn't line up anymore with the control arms, and would also rub on my tires if I turned to full lock.
