here's a couple from this morning.
still have to brace the link crossmember and upper link mounts. and weld all the suspension out and mount shocks
ride height

link crossmember is 1.75x.250" dom and is gonna be braced from the lower link moutns to the frame.
we tossed the links into the calculator and with adjusting the uppers got between 68% and 99%. it will probably stay in the 2nd lowest hold most of the time around 88%




that should tide ya over until later today

100% better than before but it looks kinda silly with the rear end a mile behind the buggy.

I like it, looks kinda neat. Plus, you could do wheelies with it! Well... if it wasn't a Toyota, I mean.

weighted it with a propane tank driveshaft box of bolts and heims and propane tank brackets and some random steel piled into the seats and got this


pretty happy. i think the weight bias to the driver side is cuz thers a bunch of steel in the seat as well as the muffler

The further out at the bottom the more stable if i'm not mistaken

Also need to spin them and point the schrader valve in

Edit: the tabs that are already on it would probably be your best bet

the tabs we put on dig into the top eyes almost at ride height. and im worried the hard hits will peel the tabs off or bend that tube.
the schrader valve is under the tube.
those zipties are chromoly!
