Digging the contrast of the body and the mechanicals right nowDave-coParticipantMay 27, 2021 at 3:30 pmPost count: 78
Pat stay at about 27 degrees, yes you might be able to get more but you will be more when everything seats in. make sure you have axle plunge very important which means grab axle and make sure it moves in and out. Not sure if you know about clocking the cv jponts but make sure the cv bolts are not aliened you want then off on each axle turns them into universal and takes bind out. Any questions just ask I will check backPat KModeratorJune 2, 2021 at 7:38 amPost count: 2160
Worked on this over the weekend. Mocked the IRS pivots up.
Pass side setup has excessive plunge at 0° and then binds at 24°. I need to order a 1” longer axle to make this side work due to the offset in the trans itself.
Drivers side looks like it will work with the 19 1/4” axle length.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KModeratorJuly 14, 2021 at 9:49 pmPost count: 2160
Worked on this a couple of hours all but one night last week and the whole weekend.
The new longer pass side axle was great on the fallout but a bit too long at 0°. Trimmed 3/16 off each end and cut new snap rig groves on the lathe.
Good to go at 0° but now missing full drop by 1° because I cut it down. Fix was to plunge cut the snap ring side of the center stars to gain back what I needed for full drop.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KModeratorJuly 15, 2021 at 9:03 amPost count: 2160
All together and cycling fully. Alignment and toe were great.
Tacked pivots in finally!!!
Getting 12” of travel so far. I think I can get a little more up with some trimming.
We will build it if it comes.VwfoolParticipantJuly 15, 2021 at 10:33 amPost count: 502
