hey guys, I made up a "short" list of things that need to be acquired/done in order to make a good lift kit. Let me know if you think I'm missing anything. All this is for a 3" lift:
Deaver Springs for rear -- longer and 2.5" high.
Spring Over Conversion?
Longer Control Arms -- upper and lower.
Relocate torsion bar mounts?
Uniball ball joints or similar.
Longer axle shafts -- Summers Bros., chromoly?
cut front axle flanges
Porche 930 cv joints (got with flange cuts)
Stronger bearing cages
Sway-a-Way shocks - x 4 (that way you don't need two Bilsteins per side).
Rear shock hoop -- through the bed and anchored to frame.
Relocated shock mounts on bottom?
Front shock hoops.
Limiting straps - one for each corner, "just before" it bottoms out.
Stainless Steel brake lines.
Larger torsion bars
Fiber glass fenders. Bigger bulge bigger opening.
I have to be missing something here...
Let me know!
