Hey brent, the way you have the kit is that how its installed with the allen screws facing towards the front or is it swapped ? Kind of a dumb question but just me test fitting it i had it the other way and it seemed to close ??
In that picture he posted you would be looking towards the kit from the rear of the vehicle.

thanks get low, thats how mine is installed, it just seems so close to the spring pockets and you have to install the lower bolts for the control arms in before or get a shorter bolt, atleast on my first gen thats how it is

Yeah, like Jordan said, that would be what is tucked up against the engine crossmember. I took the pic that way so you can see the heims and allen head bolts and stuff.

But because of the downward angle of the steering box and pittman arm you couldn't even install it the other way because the linkage would hit the frame due to the crazy backward angle it would be sitting at

Sounds good! I might try to make it out because the wife was actually thinking of having the baby's 18mo pics taken at The Picture People in Orland. I'm assuming it's an indoors show?

And a small amount of progress for today. A guy from my work has a double hole saw adapter where you can use a smaller hole saw as a guide for a larger one. On my lunch break I used a 1" and 2" to notch the ends of my Speedway arms to be able to weld on 2" SD cross shaft bushings so that I can use either SD cross shafts or my custom Wheels Centered ones

A little more progress, but no pics. Seals for the steering kit came in last night so I spent some time installing them. I really like the way they look... definitely a quality product that should aide in protecting the heims on my daily driver.

Also, since there's no football or Supercross this Sat I'm hoping to spend a good bit of time in the garage getting stuff done, so that maybe next weekend I can finally get this beast lifted

You and me both Jordan!

Also, I picked up a set of 20" KMC Stealths off of jwehunt on here (I think he's 1low4x4 now tho) for summer cruising, so those should be arriving sometime within this next week. Originally I thought I'd put them on the '91 but I don't know that they'll fit with the offset that they are, so most likely they'll be for this ride when it switches back to being layed. I may throw them on with the current drop suspension just for some pics before I tear it all apart and lift it :)

Well, the Stealths arrived today :) I was hoping to load my jack and impact in my truck last night so as to swap them on the truck on my lunch break to get some pics, but I wasn't feeling well last night so I didn't get a chance to :( Plus the truck is all dirty and I had to run errands on my lunch break. So unless we get another 45° day here soon you'll probably have to wait til spring/summer to see them on the truck.

But it will be worth the wait because by then the big brakes will be on and I will remove the inner fenders so that with my Wheels Centered UCAs on I will be able to lay the front 1.5" off the ground without tubbing the firewall, and with a 3/4" notch out back it will sit level without having to cut into the bed at all :)


Stay tuned for more info on the lift... hope to work on that more this weekend, as we're technically only 1 month into winter (even though it's essentially just seemed like November non-stop for the past 3 months lol)

Well we had a 45° day yesterday that lasted through last night and now it's supposed to be nearing 60° today! So last night I threw the wheels on so I could get some pics for you guys. Unfortunately the best I could do was to go to a gas station and hope the lights there were bright enough. The bad part is... my camera can't take a non-blurry picture to save it's life when you turn the flash off :( So here's the pics I got... they'll have to tide you guys over until springtime when it sits a tick bit lower and I can get some daytime pics :)
