Following the web consensus I welded my front hangers 9" forward of factory





Replacing the nasty old bushings:





Took an air hammer and cutting wheels and one of those three armed press thingies to get it all done

Hung the springs and they were 3" too far back. Dang internets always lying.



So I cut it all off moved it way up got everything all welded in place. And here's how it looked

I decided to go with ball joint spacers in front for now, so upper a-arm grinding begins



And here's the stance so far:

Looks great so far!

How much did you have to pay that professional photographer to take all those pictures of you?

Almost forgot to say thanks to Shotshell for the indispensable help and photography.

Got more done on the truck. Shocks all welded in and front put together. The rear brakes are super spongy still so bleeding is a must and an alignment is as well. BUT it's drivable so Travis and I flexed it out:











With the RTT on it I will probably get waaaay more flex.

Justin, what are you running in the front of that for an idler arm and lower a-arm brace?

If you don't have any, I have an old school NWOR idler arm brace and Sonoran Steel rear arm brace sitting in my garage that I need to get rid of. I had the brace on until I went 35's and upgraded to the TC arm.

I ask because the BJ spacers kill idlers quick offroad (only trashed 4 before I bought the brace ). The Brace combined with brass bushings is the best set up short of the TC arm.

I'd take some beers for em if you are interested, if you don't mind picking em up. I'd love to get them out of my garage.

Happy camper IPA is always a plus! I'm out camping this weekend, but around the next. Give a ring when you want to meet up!
