Fun stuff!!!

I know you've probably been told this before...but this:



Would make for a VERY bad day if you had a blowout on the freeway lol.  On top of that, the guy behind you would likely have a PRETTY DAMN HARD time stopping in time not to rear end you with all that oil on the road lol.

Stage 4 Got tired of jarring my fillings loose with the stupid IFS. Time for a real suspention.




RIP


I scored a 79 toyota 8" front straight axle from my uncle and began to make it as bad ass as I could.

Final specs on front end are:
High Pinion with electric locker and 4.88 gears
30 sp Longfield Super Axles (stronger at full turn than a Dana 60) check em out- http://www.longfieldsuperaxles.com/
79 housing offers the most ground clearance
Fully trussed with diff protection and shaved lower brackets for ubolt flip
Knuckleball gussets and Rock Rings
Hi Steer steering arms to put my tie rod above my leaf springs and 1 ton size tie rod ends
12" Landcruiser vented disk brakes so I could use my stock 4 piston calipers
Stock Aisin Hubs (because they are undebatably stronger than any aftermarket hub)

This isn't mine but here's a stocker. Stock the came with a front to back style steering (J arm). They suck and end up cracking in half.



working...


Here it is done. The High steer positions the tie rod high above the leaf springs and keeps the draglink angle very reasonable. I could not drop the pitman arm any because my springs have so much uptravel the tie rod almost hits at full compression.




High Pinion keeps driveline totally above the axle tube and my ujoints happy.


Most mount the steering stabilizer to the draglink, but the angles change as the suspension moves and that drives me nuts. I mounted mine directly above the housing behind the tie rod. I chose this because its totally protected, and does not change geometry as the suspension articulates.


Now I need shocks... ProComp MX6 adjustable monotubes... and the suspension uses every inch of them...


Shock Hoops to fit em... note the oil filter - happy Cris!?  Grin



AllPro 5" leaf springs. I positioned the front tire 1.5" forward from stock and angled the hoops so the shocks are inline with the travel of the front end as it compresses (up and back).

The cool thing is now that the 900 brackets are gone I have soooo much room for cool stuff. I have lots of header room now (my upper A-Arms used to kill me) and I can run a BIG oil pan.

The front springs and hangers gave me 2.5 more inches of lift and I planned on running 37's so now I had to address the rear

Trussed up the rear housing, installed 4.88 gears, Ubolt Flip, New shock mounts because the old ones bound up durring flex.


I ran the brake line in the valley above the truss so it was totally protected


I got AllPro 5" springs for the rear and got rid of the blocks. They are 9" longer than stock so I had to make a new spring hanger. Since this moves the hanger lower on the frame, its easy to get lots of lift with a flat soft spring.

I also haul stuff and tow junk and I didnt want my soft springs wearing out and sagging on me. I cant stand it when a truck sits low in the back, so I made some removable air bags that I can toss in and out in a snap. I sleeved the frame on top, and made a mount on the ubolt pads below and tossed in some poly bushings (so no clanking) and use big tractor pins. No tools, in and out in about 2 minutes. I have hauled massive amounts of crap with these and they work awesome. Now I can haul when I need to, and not limit suspention flex or deal with stiff springs.











Here is some pics of when this stuff was finished. I ended up getting 37x12.5 Goodyears on 15x10" rims






Sorry I probably went overboard on pics

Old style toyota topshift transfer case with 4.7 marlin crawler gears
Ford 9 rear end

I pulled the 289, toyota trans, toyota tcase and sold em all. Then I went to town on my frame. I eliminated two crossmembers. One was the stock transmission x-member that hangs really low. It will be replaced by the one thats bolted to my tcase. That will net me about 6" of clearance. The other was in the way, so I built one that worked better. At this point the only stuff on the frame that has not been completely rebuilt or seriously modified are the two frame rails. I cut off so many junk brackets for things it was rediculous. Actually if was quite liberating  Grin I have a 2" body lift so I decided to use it. I moved all my running gear up so it is flat with the bottom of the frame. Now nothing hangs down.





Top one is old x-member that mounted to fuel tank, bottom is old trans mount that bolted to bottom of frame


Gas tank used to hang about 3" below the frame


I had to cut a big ol' hole in the floor to make new openings for the trans and tcase.



I was trying to show that the trans sits completely under the dash. The back of the opening is inline with my throttle pedal. The heater even still fits- YESSS

Woody's got all my stuff to put the 418 together. We we seriously considered a 347, but Jay thought that for this particular application a 418w would be a better choice. I think that may have been in part because my transmission. I am happy with it, but did NOT have many choices. Jay helped  me a TON and went WAY above and beyond for me with my head and can selection.

Here's what was decided upon

418w
Probe 4.100 cast crank
Probe 4.030 forged pistons
Probe steel I beam rods courtesy of Fordstrokers.com
CI Billet hyd roller
Comp Link-Bars
Iron RHS 180's courtesy of Camshaft Innovations
Performer RPM AirGap
ProSystems 840 (950HP Holley)
RAM twin-disk clutch per Jay and RAM 

Cam and head combo should start making power right off idle and produce max tq around 4000 and max hp around 5000
