    Getting there. Barnes 4wd towers cut to fit. The lowers will be modified link/shock combo brackets to fit on the stub side. Prep for steering box relo. Will move up a half set of bolts. Track bar bracket will move forward about the same.

    Wow, build is looking great. I'd love to come by the shop again sometime and check out you and Tom's rigs.

    Thanks Andy. Was great to meet Ringer the master fabricator himself! Hope I get to check out your work in person at some point.

    Plugged in my front geometry trying to figure out anti-dive and oversteer/understeer. Using the 3 link calculator usually used for the rear. Can I replace anti-squat for anti-dive? Assume I'd want the anti dive to be about 100%?
    Also wondering why the oversteer is almost 9deg. It seems the only way to get it to zero is triangulating the lowers considerably at the frame. Does the oversteer apply to a front end setup?

    Thanks for help guys

    Not sure if you can even read the numbers on this photo... Damn it

    Well, was able to get my oversteer down to 2.5 degrees or so up front by moving my upper links to the crossmember. got the links and coilovers in and cycled everything. Looks like I've got a few things to figure out. Not enough up travel and need to widen the mounting locations of the coilovers at the axle.

    Looks like it's coming along well. Are your shocks hitting the frame at one driver side stuff and passenger full droop?

    Yes the coils hit at full droop. The shock body barely clears. Thinking of mounting the shock tabs to the inner C somehow and lower. Gotta think about this.

    No. You can only run a drag link with a trackbar-ed setup. With a triangulated front, you will have purely vertical axle travel, but the drag link of hydro assist will still want to travel in an arc. Essentially that equals lots of bump steer. Either full hydro, or you've got to keep the trackbar.

    Where are you putting your bottom tabs now? You could tie them to the corner of the tube and upper inner c, but you would lose some uptravel if you currently have them behind the axle.

    A little late! Yeah I get it. Was just talking it out with yogurt. Hadn't thought about at that point.

    And yes that's what I said about mounting the lower coilover mounts. I'm currently on top of the lower links. Not much room to play on the D60 stub side and can't afford to lose up travel so a few things to figure out.

    Cool cool. Wish I could get out to the shop soon but I couldn't tell you when my next free weekend is.

    How long is the body on those RK coilovers? I feel like that's some of the issues you're running into. They're so damn fat and long.

    I hope to get my frame clearance done tonight on the passenger side where I am having issues. I will shoot you some pics as well as better ones of my mounts.

    They're like 36" long I think. 2" coilovers would probably have cleared. Would be great to have u around the shop for a day or two.

    Thanks was thinking to do the same if I can't outboard the lower mounts more.
