how much do you plan on lowing it. one thing is reverse eye spring and dearched the leaf packs, maybe even shorter shackles would help. one thing i do see is the they actually raise the steering box up on the frame to keep the drag link somewhat level. now i dont know if they cut and reweld the shaft to keep the steering wheel at stock height

The steering box actually attaches to the front of the main frame rail. There is a small bent metal piece that attaches to the nose piece that the steering box input to pitman arm runs through. I am thinking that an axle over spring is the best option but I also have been looking around on info of triangulated 4 link for the front and rear axles. Mostly in the process of making and repairing floors and nose first then we will work on lowering and driving.

Dale, What yard were you at? I need to find your hiding places. Plus I haven't been to any yard around here yet either.

Nate, If there is anything in the yards down here I'm sure we can get it to you.

I may make them but if something doesnt work out in making them then i may need the floors from another van or truck. I am going to give it a go since i have no front floor section at the moment and the floor around the front of the doghouse area is soon to com out as well.

Started making the floors for the dog house area with the multiple half moon shapes and the area around the master and also 2 reinforcement x pieces on either side. Slow going as there has been no time to do anything other then family things.

A guy where the nose is being done has been asking if it is for sale so i put a price of double what i have into it and see if he bites on it i guess. If it goes i may look for another with less work or sink it in the buggy or buy a drivable bug. Who knows i guess we will see what happens.
