ya, i sorta copied clayton's arms except im using johnny joints on both ends.

Well heres a update, Ive got about 10 miles on the jeep and no DW so far.. im pretty sure its gone.. I have yet to hook up the steering stabilizer and sway bar..

i have not moved the track bar up to the steering height yet so i have major bump steer.

the Iron rock track bar bushings are a joke there so soft... I get about 1/4 inch movement at both ends when i move the steering wheel side to side. i'm going to machine some delrin bushings and install them instead of the poly.

i have some small bugs to work out with the front end, like when i steer full lock left my tie rod hits the inner wheel I.D. so i'm prob just going to take some of the bend out of that end.
cheers

Got the arms painted.

I removed the springs to measure the bump stops so i can make a taller set to keep the tires form chewing at the inner fender

I need 3" or 4" longer brake lines and shocks!
