Hey Sean,I had been considering how to do the LBJ conversion with a stock spindle for a while. Nicely executed!
On the heim steering, what size joints did you use? I played around with some 3/4" and 7/8" but never got the bump steer dialed out enough to where I liked how it drove. I may need to revisit it though because I replaced some other components afterwards that could have caused the issues.
The UCA Pivot mod is also on my to do list, I like how you fabbed the locking tabs.
Have you tested the rock sliders yet? 0.120 seems on the thinner side but I have not tried it so it could be fine.
Hi Sean,Nice thanks for the reply.
On the steering, I thought I had read somwhere that the bms clevis adapter was slightly furter out than the than the oe inner tie rod end pivot but its been a while since I messed with it.
What bolt size did you use in the heims for the outer tie rod ends?
For the lower ball joint conversion, did you use a tapered bolt or just a straight shank where it bolts to the lca? I saw that you drilled the hole out but didn't see any other detail.
Hey Kpack,Nicely done so far. Your fab skills look impressive, especially on the LCA. A couple of questions just because I'm curious. What's the reason behind doing heim joints on the UCA's? Never seen or heard of that done before, and all experiences I've heard of with stock setup and polyurethane bushings seem to be positive (mine included).
How do you like the stand for the tablet? I've looked at different options and kept coming back to the kind that stand because it attached to seat mount bolt. I hate things that jiggle and squeak in my truck, so I'm curious as to how stable you find this stand.
Lastly, I'd love to see more of the mounts you made for the phone and GPS. It looks like you attached them to the top of the dash with double sided tape and screws? How's the stability? I'm looking at all solutions for my truck and like what you came up with.
Hey Tex,Love seeing all of the home brew stuff, great build thread. I am curious as what the headlight bracket/guards are for?
