    I haven't even looked yet :(

    It has been kinda cold here the past week and my garage isn't heated *excuses*

    but from what I have read I still have a bit of trimming

    whenever I get around to it, I'll tell you whatt I found and take some pics of where it hits

    that hump on rear of the LCA DEFINITELY needs cut off!

    I forgot to take a picture of the front hump but I still had like 3/4" or so before it hit...did anyone else cut this?

    here is my lower ball joint

    do you guys think the spindle will hit the LCA where I circled if I go lower?

    and last pic is of my upper ball joint--I am no suspension man so could anyone tell me if I am too close to trashing it? This is with the LCA hitting the frame so obviously it will get worse if I go lower.

    they are moog


    sorry for the quality of the pics

    that upper ball joint looks like it is under a lot of strain. you will probably have to pie cut it to corrrect the ball joint angle.

    to do that you will need to make some cuts into the upper arm toward the ball joint and then compress the suspension and let it bend the end of the arm so the balljoint is better, then weld it back up with it bent.
    Fully bagged with S10 3 link and F9000's behind and under.
