Re: Long travel Front control arms
If you're talking about a 2WD, then yes, Fabtech and some other companies make them. They don't get as much wheel travel as the "other trucks", but it's something
If you're talking about a 4x4, you're out of luck. If you get impatient, then you can always do some cu$tom work. It'll cost you more money than you probably care to spend.
I was cited before when I asked about this that the S-series "aren't as popular as the Toyotas or FordS". So it's not worth a fabricator's time and money to make a kit that not many people would buy. Well, I know of at least four people now on this board alone that want a kit like that! Me, Sandman, wtiger and 88Blazer. Anyone else?
When I was going to do the same thing to my Toyota, it turned out to cost me roughly $5000 for the entire setup. This included shocks, shock hoops, fiberglass fenders, control arms, bushings, rear springs, S/S brake lines, heavier torsion bars, mild welding, T-100 axle stubs, 930 CV joints and chromoly bearing cages, cutting the flange off the front axle ends and "re-flanging" it to accept the new CV's. Oh and putting in racing seats and some four-point harnesses.
If ANYONE could point us to a GOOD fabricator who can do something like this for a good price (as opposed to VERY CHEAP -- I believe very cheap prices equate to cheap service at times with fabbing), please post on this board!
