The truck will support itself without jack stands tomorrow I hope

This is the lower plate, and bumpstop that is going to be mounted on it. Im using a single conduit u-bolt to hold the spring on.

Its hard to see the bump stop in there, but thats likely not where it will sit when finished. I'll have to space it up some to make it bottom out before the axle hits the fuel tank.

Their called timbrens, and are about 30 bucks each. I think I talked about them in this thread a while back? The larger sizes are pretty expensive though.

Yep, that's what I am running. But the larger ones. I went to price them out. $280 for a pair Those are some expensive bumpstops I have. Thanks Kurt. Where'd you get the small ones at? I tried to price some out I think the guy was pissed off cause I about had a heart attack when he told me how much they cost.

Not only is it a bump stop. But it keeps my spring from falling out.

Are you talking about the ones on the explorer? I found those bump stops on an old diesel truck out behind the shop and thought they would be perfect. $280? I'm sure Chad paid for them somehow.

ok, the bump stops...

They are Timbren AEON Rubber Springs and can be found at www.timbren.com

http://www.timbren.com/Aeon/aeon/tim_aeon.htm

I got the A520-75. They specs are as follows.

Held with a 1/2" bolt through one end of the "spring"
Bump Load Capacity - 4400 lbs each
Nominal Height (free length) - about 4"
Nominal O.D. - 2.375"
Max Deflected Height - 1.625"
Max Deflection - 2.3125"
Max Diameter (at max deflection) - 3.5 This should fit nicely inside an XJ spring without binding up on the inside of the coil when compressed.

I thought the next best thing would be the 530-65 (see above link for specs) but they are rated 1400 less per ea. on the bump capacity.

Do you ever have plans to run coilover shocks on the rear versus the plain coils? Just curious.

I can help you out with those. And you will not be paying 280 for a pair of small ones.

For sure. As soon as I can afford them!

I do want to see how the rear suspension works this way though... Last year I had one shock, mounted way up the control arm. This year, I will be running dual shocks, mounted at or near the axle. Should make a noticable difference in performance at higher speeds.

I got the lower spring mounts done today... the horizontal plate is 3/16 A36 plate, and the round gusset is 1/8" A36 flat bar. The half inch hole is for the shock mount in progress.

Upper shock mount... Plate is 1/8" A36, and the tube is 1" A53A Pipe (sch 40) Wish I had some lighter tubing for this kind of stuff, but oh well.

Shock mounts are done, save a few minutes of welding.

Fuel Tank extension stuff... The white cap is teflon, the black ring is some sort of rubber, and the rest is 6063 pipe and 6061 billet. I machine tubes down to 1.75" and left the "bump" at 1.9" to help retain the hose. Not like it matters, since this is a zero pressure system, but why not eh The hose pictured is just radiator hose, but Im looking for some 1.75" Tygon tubing. Not having any luck. I can only find 1.5" and 2". Guess I should have looked for the tubing before I designed and machined the barbed fittings.

Whered you score the hose..is that just universal rad. hose? How well will that work with fuel? I'm in need of a straight but flexible chunk, 4" long.

Looks awesome.

Its just radiator hose. I think it will work fine since it will not be submersed in fuel, but Im going to do some testing before running it though. Its from napa.
