Made some frame plates to reinforce the shackle hangers. Made some offset shackles. Drilled the webbing on the D60 for the upright u-bolts. Installed some 3* shims under the springs to point the pinion up. Now caster is at 4*, not sure if I’ll settle for that or get some smaller shims. Next I’ll make the drag link and tie rod. Fun stuff. Cheers!

Looks good. Keep the 4* for now till you get front shaft in. Then lock up hubs and drive it to check for front shaft vibes, I think you'll be ok with the 4*

I know, I know. Stupid work keeps getting in the way. And then the damn lawn needs mowing again...
I did get some 2* caster shims to put on, and a pair of furd shock towers for when I get a chance to wrench on it some more.

Here ya go J.J.
Gonna notch the 3x3 tubing to the frame and make the bumpstops centered on the spring plates. The shock tower isn’t as close to the steering shaft as it looks. Looking at 14” bilsteins. 4” to 5” of uptravel and 9”-10” down travel.

Looks great Caz! Those are Super Duty towers, right? Seems like I was looking at those for my '74 100 at one time. Like $16 new?

Thanks, J.J.
I’m not sure of the model application, the part number is E5TZ-18183-A
I got them from WFO Concepts, with Labor Day sale they were $20 each. WFO has become one of my favorite sources for parts now. They have things that are hard to find, and great service too.

I wasn’t happy with the pinion and caster angles, so took the springs out for the third time and bolted in some 2* shims. Now it’s perfect and I can move on.

Okay, not much to update on this one, unfortunately. Been a couple years but I did get the steering and suspension dialed in, just need to go over everything and torque all the bolts. I lifted the rear with blocks, pretty happy with the stance. Last week I went to tinker on the brakes and I got stumped on the rear Dana 70. I need a vent bolt that holds down the brake tee. I got one for a Furd, it was a 5/16” fine thread, but apparently I need a coarse tread one. I may try and make one if I have to. Other than that I’ve been working on Clover, finishing up a complete new dual exhaust system now. Cheers, Caz

That's an oddball size vent bolt. Good to hear you're still at. Keep me in mind if you ever decide to sell.
