Re: Project: over winter

Lol conversion van, folds out to a bed fer those drunken nights someone help? I'm 1" from laying up front, because my lower arms are up against the frame. Will getting the max travel balljoints help, or do I need new lowers? Trying to stick with stock spindles...

Re: Project: over winter

i went thru the whole thread and didnt see if you were on stock lowers or tubular lowers. If you're on stocks you dehumped them right?

Re: Project: over winter

Got them "fantastic" FBI arms bruh. I've notched the control arm pockets n what not to give them more travel, nothing else is rubbing but the arms :/

Re: Project: over winter

you may have to go to drop spiindles with those arms. i dont see the max travel bj's up top fixing your problem cuz like you said the lower control arm is already bottomed out on the frame. 2" spindles would solve it i think

Re: Project: over winter

That's what I figured...I think I'd rather get some mmw arms or something, and keep the stock spindles. For the same price, why not try loll

something about those old FBI arms pushes the spindles out i believe and i think thats why you're having this problem.. Im not 100% on if thats whats happening but i know i heard something a while back on the fbi arms being a pain in the
d!ck.
pretty sure if you get some other kind of flat plate or tubular lower youll be fine and if you're running stock uppers it would def be a good idea to have those max travell bj's from PP.
I actually have a set and just looked for them but cant find em would have hooked ya up as im running mmw uppers now

Hell spend the couple bucks and get spindles. What do you want to keep stocks?

Re: Project: over winter

Re: Project: over winter

I also have the FBI uppers. Plan is, keep the uppers, and get the mmw lowers for now. As far as flipping my calipers in the rear, do I just flip the bracket? And ima try to scoop a 7" summit booster and waylayed disc/disc prop in the next few weeks. If all goes well, should have this hog out of the garage late April, early may

Re: Project: over winter

I'm exactly 1" from ground front to back, and I might be 1/4" closer to the firewall than what's pictured. FBI arms,stock but modded spindles, tie rod notches, lower control arm mounts cut, and 245/35/20

Re: Project: over winter

ive never layed a 20 on a stock spindle but ima guess that firewalls gonna get cut. start eliminating things, pop the lower bj and see if it will lay, then put it back pop the upper bj and see if thats it so on and so forth

Re: Project: over winter

Been super busy with work and other people's projects, not much has been done to the blazer...but yesterday I did get all this done- my lowers are my cause of not laying, so they gots to go. I'm into my nice blower box and firewall with about 1/4" to frame. Front sheet metal back off, I'm getting mmw lowers this summer as well as that fancy lsoh kit ill love tab the firewall or cut if need be..also a pic of the cleaned up shop, brothers headliner I did, and cousins windows. All this was done yesterday I might add, hehe.

Yes you can do that but don't be fooled, there's still a ton of work that you will have to do.
