    Not gonna lie, i was just digging around for the thread with the land rover talk lol. heim joint rear end wouldn't be too bad, its like 175$ for an 8 kit on rockwell off road. + another 3$/foot for tubing. Figure another 225$ for heim joint rear vs 20$ for spliced rear. (excluding brake line, random metal costs, pan hard bracket, etc...)

    I put the jack stands under the car (right on the rail, in front of the lower trailing arm bracket). the back wheels are barely off the ground... So i'm either gonna have to put a foot of wood under the jack stands, or get ones that are a foot taller. Either way, its pretty annoying. Rear currently has 2" lift coils. The goal is to see if I cant get ahold of longer springs that fit this. That or longer springs and weld on a spacer.

    I saw some numbers/letters on the inside of the corner extension piece the other day. Ill try to get a picture of them as they might help find out what this bumper came off of originally.

    Got the car out and back into the shed so I can get working on the rear end. Really would like to extend the current 4 link with sleeves, but another part of me says heim joints all the way around... IDK yet! Here are a few pics I took while moving it around. Also, if you have any ideas/suggestions for the front or rear end, id love to hear them. Constructive criticism is great. I want to do a pinion brake setup.. but we'll see

    Diff drop - not SFD

    no because the rear axle was and is still the lowest part.

    Diff drop - not SFD

    The brackets themselves only took maybe an hour to make and 30 minutes to install. Yes. in order for mine to work, i relocated the control arms down 3-4". So when i dropped the diff down another 3-4" they stayed at the same angle.

    Diff drop - not SFD

    A 1-1.5" wouldn't work for my design. It has to be no less than 3ish inches. I don't have any pics

    Diff drop - not SFD

    although i am running a sfd, it wasn't related or installed because of the sfd. it was a lift i built, mocking an f150 crossmember drop lift. my diff is dropped 9-10" total. the only thing i ran into was the trans support crossmember. i notched it out a little bit and then the driveshaft cleared fine. depends on the type of suspension you are running

    Diff drop - not SFD

    I made a diff drop a few years ago for my r50. its not blocks. Its two brackets that bolt into the 8 diff bolts ( 4 on each side). Its a 3-4" drop. I did it because after the lift i made for my pathfinder the cv axles were a little steep. the diff drop brought them back to near parallel to the ground.

    Gonna try to use the stock location on the axle, i'll post some pics as soon as I get them setup. Looking like they'll go up onto the rail.

    Well here she sits "done". I need to go back to trim & adjust some little things, paint the links and some brackets, double check everything is tight, etc... I broke the radiator while cutting the brackets for the steering box off the rail, so once I get a new rad in, it'll be hitting the backyard for a test drive!

  15. I made a diff drop that was 3-4". it isn't giving me any lift, but with my suspension it was necessary to keep the CV axles flat. It may fit also as a POSSIBLE replacement for the 6 subframe blocks in the SFD application. Not sure the consequences of having the CV axles and control arms at a different angle however. Maybe they'd hit the control arm? maybe not. Someone should try them and report back.
