I just finished typing out a long ass blurb about what I've done to my rig to get it this far and when I went to post it the fucking thing had logged me out [27] [27] What a piss off. Sorry folks but you'll have to settle for some pics and a little Q&A as I'm not going to type out all that crap again, at least not right now. I put a couple pics of it beside my 4 door with a 2" lift to illustrate where I'm at with it. Sorry about the dirty pics but I'm fresh out of Armorall.[15]

SAS is and has been in the back of my mind for awhile now but I'm not done moddin the IFS yet. I would rather have a cv break and spend 15 minutes to replace it than have a ujoint or birf break and have a more involved trail repair. I'm not saying I won't sas but just not yet

what size lift on that, home brew?
I have a 3" home brew bodylift and a 2" Calmini susp lift that I tweaked to 4" in the front and Jeep XJ front coils in the rear with one complete loop cut off then squeezed down to fit the spring pad, works out to about 4". I built my own strut spacers and third link spacer to make it move better. I put in 3" drop brackets for the front diff and as you can see my cv angles are pretty good. I also widened the front susp to allow me to run the drivers side cv on the passenger side for easy trail side repairs.

They are pretty decent little machines and the ifs hasn't stopped me from going where I want as much as no front locker has. Even with just a welded rear it has surprised me a few times

looks neat, I wouldn't weld the front, those poor little cv would explode
but other than that looks pritty neat = )

I used to have a little sami, always liked suzuki, maybe oneday I will do a grand vatara

I don't plan on locking the front until I can get a steel housing then I'll play with different cv ideas. The welded rear has held up really well to DD use as well as pounding it on the trail.:D

The diff drop brackets are from a calmini 3" kit. The ifs suspension was just relocated but not dropped. I did make the strut spacers and the spacer for the rear third link though.

I'm planning on:
Front:
2" Coil Spacers
3" Strut Spacers
1" IFS drop like Calmini

Rear:
Ford AreoStar Coils or Nissan 180 SX coils
2wd Ford F-150 Rear shocks
3" diff/ball joint spacer

Possibly longer rear links for better flex.

Will be running 31x10.50x15 Mtr's with a LockRite Rear

Tell me what you think of my plan?

Front:
2" Coil Spacers
3" Strut Spacers
1" IFS drop like Calmini
You'll want to make your strut spacers match your coil spacers or your cv will be over extended and blow apart at the most inopertune time. You must mean a 1" diff drop as they don't offer an IFS drop. With the 1" diff drop and 2" coil and strut spacers you will have a front end that will be decent. This will give you close to 3" of lift in the front.

Rear:
Ford AreoStar Coils or Nissan 180 SX coils
2wd Ford F-150 Rear shocks
3" diff/ball joint spacer
I'm not familiar with either of those coils so I have no opinion. I used XJ front coils and cut them down to the size I wanted then heated and squeezed the bottom loop to fit the coil bucket on the axle. Again you want to make the diff spacer match the lift you are putting into the rear or you will create binding problems. For shocks I use the cheap blue monroe's, try part #32162 they have a decent length and stroke that will match that lift well.
Possibly longer rear links for better flex.
I wouldn't bother making longer lower links unless you plan on making the top one better at the same time as you will be maxing out the ball joint as it is.
Will be running 31x10.50x15 Mtr's with a LockRite Rear
31's are a good size for this setup and you would need further susp mods or heavy fender and floor bashing to go bigger. Keep in mind that if you stay with a skinny tire you can go taller and that's what really counts plus these trucks are not heavy enough to make a wide tire bite in.
Tell me what you think of my plan?
There's my two bits worth:D

that sounds good.

So I will go with a 2" strut spacer and maybe some different shocks.

do you think i could run some 32X9.50's with out trimming, i have a 3" body lift right now...

kick

32's are a guaranteed trim job unless you relocate the front susp.
You may even need to do a slight trim on the back of the front fenders with 31's depending on how the tires measure out and the offset of the rims. I would suggest a rim with nuetral offset, that is a 7" rim with 3.5" backspace or 8" with 4" bs. I've found that a 10.5 " wide tire works well on a 7" rim as it holds the bead better at low pressures.

I'm running 32x9.5 swampers on my 'kick with only a 3.5 inch body lift and some very minor trimming of the rear part of the front fenders. I have also removed the plastic bumper cover on the front and rear.

I am thinking about going with the calmini 3 inch lift if the lockrite I am installing in the rear doesnt keep up to the 2 jeeps that I run around with. They are both locked front and rear with lower gears and 33inch bfg a/t's.

How are your cv angles at full droop and full lock? tearing alot of cv boots?

CV angles are really good, only had one boot fail and it was old

kick
07-14-2006, 08:05 AM
I have calmini 2" lift lower control arms, stock springs, 2" coil spacers. I have 2.25" strut spacers with a mount flip. I'm also using 3" calmini diff drop brackets

youngun
07-14-2006, 11:44 AM
I'm going to run 2 1/8" coils spacers
2" strut Spacer
Calmini's diff drop bracket

if i have really good angles with the calmini diff drop i might flip the strut mount

ok, I just got 1/2 of a 2" Calmini lift. I got the rear springs, arms, struts, 4 rear shocks and maybe someother stuff. How hard would it be to modify the stock front diff hangers to drop/rotate them like calmini?

kick
07-27-2006, 09:49 PM
I would say that it would take a bit of work, I went the easy way and traded mine for 3" brackets:D
