\"SLEEPER Samurai Project updated!

Project "SLEEPER Samurai" updated today. Progress today includes building a funky custom oil pan for the 1998 1.6 16 valve Tracker motor. It is a Samurai/Tracker HYBRID pan because the 1998 tracker is bit different from the older style oil pans. Plenty of pic's and info.

Re: \"SLEEPER Samurai Project updated!

Robert.
It looks like you have been busy. Your Zuk is looking good! So how does it handle with the new Tracker/Kick power steering setup?...and ride with the rears in the front and CJ's in the rear. Are those the 33X12.50 Hi-Tech retreads on it? You should post some of your build up pic's. You know everyone would love to see them!

I really like the power steering set up! No more "Popeye" arms! The 33" Hi-Techs @ 20psi w/the spring swap and shocks result in a nice ride! There is no tire rubbing, but the z bar does bind on a spring with a hard left turn.
I was thinking of posting some build up pics, but I think its been done to death already.

Rear springs up front

Robert: What method did you use to mount the rears up front. Did you have to position the axle forward to get wheel well clearance on the 33"s? How far forward can you position the front axle before you have to make other modifications? Do you know of any kit to extend the frame without missing links? Thanks for any help.

Re: Rear springs up front

Father. I used the RRO kit and 2" lift boomerang shackles.The RRO kit was a no brainer to install. I used the boomerang shackles for the little extra spring length out the front. I think they look better than the straight shackles. If your using your bumpstops the boomerangs won't bottom out. I added the bottom two helper spring leafs from the Samurais front springs and added them to the rear springs being used up front. This helps balance the lift with the CJ springs used in the rear.
I have moved the axle forward about an inch. Any further and there can be problems with steering components binding. I had to cut some metal from the front bumper to allow clearance for the tires when turning.
I don't know of any kits to extend a frame. The CSC Wrangler spring conversion has the frame extentions intergrated into the kit. You may be able to fab something something similar.
