  1. I have this sitting in my garage if you're interested in it. It's the subframe blocks of a 2" sfd.
  2. Hasn't been touched since unfortunately. Between doing my thesis, BioChemistry, Physics and my Biology classes, I have no time to spare. Hopefully after graduation this May i'll have a decent break to finish the rear. On the bright side, I just bought a new welder to help with this project, so that ought to make it go by a little faster than the front end.
  3. Installing the same exact one on mine^^ brother ordered it for his tacoma, but there was an error in the production so they are sending him another for free
  4. thanks for the tip, I will look into it for sure!
  5. Yesterday I stripped down the rear end completely, and you are absolutely right. Im gonna need to lower the brackets. Maybeeeee not the lowers but the uppers are most definitely going to need to be moved down. I didn't realize how far back the brackets were. In my head i saw them as about 2 feet further forward, but in reality the uppers are like a foot away from the axle and the lowers maybe 30"+-. the links in the front are probably 45" so this is a huge difference. Time to change my approach to the rear end.

  7. Your points are very good. Im going to have to lay down under it it for a while taking measurements and seeing whats the best course of action.
  8. Thank you. I'd like to keep the mounting points original for the rear links. If i redo them to lower them, it spells a lot more work for me. Im gonna get some more heim joints and use some more dom to make new links. its got 2" ac coils currently, so ill probably put a decent spacer in there and call it a day, for now. If it doesn't work well, ill look for longer coils. I tried for a while to understand the LR coil charts but I gave up after a while. I was getting confused between which coils worked, the 90 or the 110... if im not mistaken, the longest one was 5-6" lift for the LR? idk The front driveshaft is gonna need double cordon joints id imagine. Ill figure that out down the line once everything has been tested. I just got the radiator for it today, so hopefully next weekend ill give it a spin.
  9. I really would like to use the stock brackets in the rear. A lot less work involved for me.
  10. They are originals form certain countries only. Many have imported them to the US.
  11. 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...)
