Rear discs and twin sticks

Just a bit of an update for anyone still kicking around,

Rear suspensions sorta pinned down, disc'd, shaved, welded, etc.

Rear hanger is from a 1/2ton suburban if I remember correctly. FYI there are 3 different heights of front hangers you can use for the shackle flip. Think they are about 4"-6"-8" of bolt center to bolt center drop in the spread. Short ones are 2wd 3/4T, medium is 1/2T sub, and long is 3/4T 4x4.

Springs are 57" 3 leaf+overload F150 springs with a leaf from my custom front pack jimmied two down from the main.

They seem SOFT. I can bounce on them pretty substantially.

And the twinsticked 205.

Shifters are from JKL Off-road, easy install, smooth shifting, quick responses and shipping. Recommend anyone thinking about doing the twinstick mod to check him out. The time it would take to figure out a setup as smooth as this would not be worth it in mho, i paid 150 canadian too my door.

Does JKL have a website, and are they a Canadian company?
Can't wait to see more updates... [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Rear discs and twin sticks

Twin stick transfer case set up allows you to choose hi or low
range for either axle. so you could have 2w low on the rear axle, and nutral for the front axle.
Hope this helps

Re: Rear discs and twin sticks

Wow this is an old post eh.

Anyways ya the twinstick is one of my favorite mods. Very easy to do and made my case shift way better than before. rearwheeldrive lowrange is useful as is front wheel drive lowrange.

All you have to do is pull the range rod out (the shift rod that is closest to the input gear) and move the marks at each end in 7/16" of an inch keeping the same profile at the end of the grind. Search for twinstick 205 on google and you'll find the picture that shows you how to do it.

As to replacing the 10 spline input gear its a simple job just watch out for the needle bearings between the input gear and the rear output shaft.





These are what they should look like curtosy of Bgreen and www.akfabshop.com

Anyways. Heres a little newer pic of the beast.
