since the front end was being looked at........
full stuff. bumpstop "engaged", strut near compressed(-1/8"?).note cv angles.
dropped. looks excessive, but I've had no problems.......
except for the wheel fitment problem suzi has, this may be the best useful articulation using mostly stock parts and stock mount locations. swinging the rear of the a-arm out(to move the wheel forward) wouldn't change function much.
hmmm... lotta work making axles fit. hmmm......
think i'll look at the other end for a while.
the fuel tank has been smacked a bit. mabe a bit more thru the rubicon and dusy-ershim.
i had raised the tank a bit in the past.
perhaps if i cut out that brace that the current front tank mounts are on......
i did cut that brace out. i think i can move the tank up about 1 3/4" more, refit(& weld) the brace/mount, then figure some shield.
i now see why i couldn't put much more than 10 gallons in the tank. perhaps i can get the volume back.
couple of washers to drop the bumpstop a smidge.... might have been compressing enough to touch the end of the strut.
reassembled w/4door spings- we'll see.
gas tank project moving along.
