    Sas spring rate

    When I did the waggy dana44 swap I used bds xj coils. They seem to be a little on the stiffer side. For you guy's that have done a sas what have you found to work good. Seems a good spring might be an early bronco.

    only 8.5 volts to reverse lights.

    As stated I am only getting 8.5 volts to the reverse lights. I tested the fuse and there was 12volts there. So is there something in the switch that would cause this? How does the reverse switch circuit work? I know the switch in the trans is just a ground "m5od" any ideas on where I could be...

    steering shaft slop.

    In the middle of my engine swap my A.D.D. kicked in and I started messing with the gear box and steering shaft. I found 90% of the slop/slack to be in the slip part between the rag joint and u-joint "89 ranger 4x4" So I pulled the whole shaft out to see whats loose. After pulling it apart I...

    My Steering build kinda like superrunner

    Ok This build is from my old ranger but it worked great. I am going to build another for my new ranger but there will be a few changes for the new one. This one has heims but could have used TREs. The biggest bad design in this is that the drag link TRE to the pitman arm was welded in the tube...

    v-8 Trans to use a 1354t-case ?

    So I have a project that has a 302. With I think an AOD and I know 1356 tcase. To sum a few things up I need to shorten my drive system and I know the 1354 is almost a full 3 inches shorter.
