Adam burned these on today (and a few other things).

I think we decided we are going to replace this crossmember too. Bend it up out of some DOM, if we bend and angle it up and back we can gain easily 2” for shocks.

I have had a pile of these OEM 70-series rubber bushes for awhile. Pretty happy they match up the OME leaves, I am going to run them on the shackle side up front.

Are you going to use 18mm bolts? I machined up some sleeves to take up the space between the standard 9/16" ruffstuff bolts and the 18mm bushing ID.

Yup 18mm bolts.

Drilled the RS shackles to suit. Grade 10.9 bolts, super strong. In the past I have gotten bolts drilled with a grease zirk to do this but with the OEM rubbers they don’t need regular greasing. I would honestly prefer to run OEM rubber bushes all around but don’t think we are doing that, just front shackle side.

Are you planning to place the front axle in the stock location or are you moving it forward?
