Kerts SAS kit should come with bolts for the end of the springs.

I think I'll get it. I'll have to go buy bolts tomorrow so that means I won't be able to turn it around and do the shackle flip tonight. Kinda frustrating. It's not something you can reuse because there was no spring bolts taken out.

No oxy+torsion bars= the suck.

7 bolts hold on EACH front spring hangar.

No, he doesn't supply bolts becuase there are so many different combonations of springs that can be used, and they all take different sized bolts.

You can have it. Numbers in my profile. It's a 9.25 ifs. So heavy3/4 and 1 ton. Cvs seem alright. Upper ball joints are ****.

IFS parts.


Got one spring. Working on the other side. I have to cut more of the Y pipe for the new hangar to clear. Frame is as cleaned up as I care for it to be. Hopefully tomorrow I can get some brake lines and turn it around, then tart on the shackle flip. It's VERY obvious these frames are MUCH stronger then square body frames.

After the axles are in I have to pull the case and swap the 32 spline input into my psd 241. Gotta fix the floor. It's rusted, but not out by the rockers. It's weird. I'm going to pull the interior out and do it once. Replace what needs replaced the probably Rustoliem it. I understand the bed liner option, but I want sound deadening and some insulation wherever it helps.

The 1/2 ton burbs have a different front spring hangar so it sits lower. The *** end of thing was high from the start so hopefully I get enough lift out front.

Sounds good! I'll try and keep this updated. I'll start a thread on MSV forum tomorrow.

I need some sheet metal for the floors. Any hoods, doors, anything I can cut up would be helpful!

Gus, that blazer still there? Maybe I'll drive the burb out this weekend, cut some panels off, and use your fancy welder.

Sweet! Thanks mike. It will be a roller with the lift installed today.

Even with just the 36" tires, I think it will be to tall to fit in a 7 foot door.

Notice how I've avoided and shots from a distance? Gotta try and build the suspense up...
