Due to the high shipping charges and different setup on my truck due to yearly automobile inspection over here in Belgium I built my own instead of buying Keith's set.
I used to run a homebuilt version of the caltracs but due the system design and some mistakes on my part while building I was left with slack in the suspension and it rattled which was very annoying.
I reused the rear caltrac setup, it's based of the bottom U bolt plate instead of a seperate welded clamp like keith uses. This way I can easily remove the entire thing and swap in a different plate for the yearly inspection.
Because of the fact that I used the u bolt plate, the bars were not in line with the frame and I had to use a offset bracket. I opted to use bolts instead of welding it to the frame again for the yearly inspection, hopefully they won't notice the holes in the frame.
Point of no return
Sleeve tube in to prevent the frame from buckling when tightening the bolts
Ready for paint
Side mount bracket, recently bought a set of dimple dies and really wanted to use them lol
, did put them in wrong, the bulge should be down lol. Did al the bending of the plate with my 20 ton press, worked perfectly.
Bracket in place, the bars are nice n close to the frame, but hopefully not too close so that they touch when the suspension bottoms out, time will tell.
Thanks for watching
