Some Maintenance

Finally got around to installing the new ball joints and 2" drop springs. Going to mod the suspension travel. Want a little more suspension travel up front. Have to lower the rear suspension a little more too.

Looks good Stu, I need to get another pair of those springs. Did it drop it the full 2"?

Cut those factory perches off and add these you can get them at advance or almost any parts store. The factory cup will hit the lower arm on bumps. With some long bars you could get pics of that rear tire tucked just cut one of the welds off the side of cup bend cup till other weld snaps grind flat ad there's a hole already there for you to use

Been there and done that and will tell you this is the solution to the bump problem and will save you a great deal of time.

About 1 1/2. Exactly where I wanted it to be.

Yep. That seems to be the easiest solution. Still have 3 1/2 shock travel.

Looking for some gas charged front shocks to help lift the front upon acceleration.

Find a set of 90/10 for the lowered length you will need they don't help lift bit they allow lift. Shocks are only to control spring oscillation.
