    Suspension lift information

    I have had all 3 UCA's side by side. Stock, AC and Rough Country/Superlift. The AC arms do not correct the BJ angle. They market them that way so they can sell more. In fact, they're even flatter than stock arms are, which makes the BJ angles WORSE than stock. Idiots.

  3. Hey man, where did you score those Chev 2500 KYB shocks? Cannot find them anywhere...

    Anyone With Strobes?

    I would go with the white LED strobes first. The 8-strobe kit is only 20 watts per tube, which isn't all that bright IMHO. If you really want to be noticed, a Whelen 60 watt kit would be good, but spendy. +/- $300 IIRC.

    Damn, man. Jared was a good soul. He was nice to everyone and always tried to help out in arguments. We'll miss him and I'm sorry to hear of this.

    Missing Pictures Thread

    Hi... LTNS, NPORA. I somewhat recently had my hosting package canceled due to a mix-up with debit card numbers and expiration dates, so allllllll of the pics I had hosted for NPORA went away with the hosting package. To quote Charlie Brown, "AAAAAUUGGH!" >.< I got the account fixed and re-uploaded 99% of all the pics that were missing. Problem is, when I uploaded the backups I neglected to keep the capital letters in the filenames (dammit) so if a pic had a capital letter in the name originally and I re-uploaded it in all lower case it won't show up. If you find more missing pics of mine in any how-to's or important threads, please post here and let me know. -88
  7. Like the topic says, 4WheelParts.com has 2" by 20' Smittybilt tow straps on sale for $16.99 WITH FREE SHIPPING. That's a NICE price on a heavy duty tow strap! http://www.4wheelparts.com/Winches-Winch-Accessories/Smittybilt-Recovery-Strap.aspx?t_c=18&t_s=124&t_pt=5083&t_pl=5836

    Working on my Pathy again - Good stuff

    I already tried the Aerostar coils, they're WAY too soft. If the AS springs you found are progressive rate, the upper coils will all collapse on each other just from the weight of the Pathy. Here's a test pic I took.

    87 Pathfinder Lift question

    You can't crank the front end up that high without making problems for your CV axles. They're still stock axles and they still have a stock range of angularity/movement. You need about 1/2" between the UCA and the upper bumpstop at least. There's really no way to match maximum front lift to rear lift with these things due to the IFS front suspension setup. Ball joint spacers are not good in general if you intend to wheel your Pathy. Did you find the 1/2" spacers? I had a set on my Pathy and they nearly immediately broke my front suspension when I went wheeling. On the JGC springs, you HAVE to measure them. The spring wire thickness is key. They also need to be 9 coils tall. I found some at a local junkyard that are .58" thick, which gave me about 3" of lift.
