well i found a little cash and decided to get a better lift on the ol jeep . bought a jks front track bar and I found some 12" king coilovers at a good price and then i said well how can i get them under the jeep well i want bolt on so i headed over to see bond at out law and got the alpha 1 front coilover set up and i picked up some evo c2 gussets
sense dodge just replaced my front end after the brake . well now i think i am done go home bolt those in and have a good day well i was wrong 1st i welded the c2 gussets
in after remove the old springs and shocks and track bar made some track bar support brackets and upper control arm supports
. then i set up the upper hoops and and marked all the holes to start drilling and bolt this in well you cant really see where to drill the holes in the spring perch so busted out the plasma cutter and blow some holes throw and then drilled up to make the holes the right side the rest of the hole where not a prob bolted the hoop in that was done no to work on the bottom . well the kits lower bracket does not work with the evo c2 gussets so we modified it and the welded it on in the place where it should be
not to bad then i set up the coil overs and when to put them in well the opening is to big for the coilover i need spacers call all over the place for king spacers cant find any well i have some dom the is the perfect size so i go and make the spacers and then install the coil overs nice they look great
so got every thing back together and set the track bar . so i started to drive home and there is a noise the tires are rubbing on some thing get out and look and there is no way they can do that so started to go again and same noise i get out and look and it is the drive shaft hitting the tranny skid damn so i call je reel and they made me a drive shaft the next day so i took it and the 5:13 gears i got from wood and had oc motorsports install them for 250 and axle was not to bad .
so now the front is about at 5" lift and the rear is still 2.5 puck so i went down and got some 4" rear springs and the jeep is almost level and i have some alinement issues well my wheel base is 2 inches short and my caster is at 9 degrees so i just ordered some lower control arms from rock krawler and i am going to cut and lengthen the upper arms a little .
i hope it all works out but it cost me a lot more then i thought it would but i can suffer financially for a bit .
