Ooops! Need bigger tires ?!?
 
Er.. I thought I'd get a little lift but now I'm stuck in my own garage. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Is this normal? Do I like need some 35s now? Those are 33s on there. Maybe I just get some 44 slicks for the rear and leave the front as it is. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Big 8.8 is in now, what do you think of this pinion angle? (20 degrees) Is this normal?

well you want the pinion aimed at the transcase for the CV type set-up that you have right? i see you have SOA and the pinion does look steep but if it is aimed correctly then that's what you want. i still have the stock axle and spring under with 12 degree shims. you're not running shims right? you still have stock axle in front? going SOA there also right? looks like the SYE isn't leaking now! say what kind of rear bumper/spare swing-out do you have? that's what i am looking for now.

I think the important question is how are ya gonna get it outta the garage now [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]??? Looks good though, a little larger tire probably wouldn't hurt [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Ooops! Need bigger tires ?!?
 
Since it's a new rear axle I just rotated it to point at the tcase yoke, -2 deg. The driveline will be at 20 deg. I'm actually counting on a little spring sag. The rc D30 front will also go SOA soon. I'm a little worried about using a CV rear shaft with an offset pumpkin (compound angles). Sorry, the bumper/tire carrier is home made. Check my web page if interested. As for getting it out of the garge I hope if I get the tires down to 3 psi I'll loose a few inches. If not then I have to disconnect the rear shackles and let it sit on the springs while backing out. Ouchh!! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

1. Take the rollbar off and fold the windshield.
2. Use the hi-lift to raise the garage.
3. Just give it some gas and crash through the garage. (hey kool-aid)

just use a floor jack. take the wheels off and lower it down until it will go under.. If it is still too tall then i dunno.. just my $.02

Just drop the air pressure to about 2 pounds, back it out, and air it up.

If the air pressure thing isn't enough, then get some of those rachet straps and compress your suspension. Get the axle on the frame and that should get you out.

Now this idea might work <blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr>

. Just give it some gas and crash through the garage.

Looks like a lot of hard work is paying off.
Did you narrow the 8.8 or are you going full size front and rear?
Are those lift springs or stock?
