Default Ladder bar heims ~~~

The Heims are 3/4" with 5/8 unidirectional fittings and bolts they are pretty beefy.

Sure , I would have been surprised if you had used inadequate parts at those stress points , I was straining my eyes to see what size they might have been but I think my blurry old eyes deceived me , Ha !!

Back at it again before I drive up the CA, OR coast line to Seattle for as long I want to stay and get out of the blast furnace called Arizona. I thought I would catch the Concourse de Elegance at Pebble Beach until I saw the ticket prices $375, I don't think so I was bitching about $70 for Barrett Jackson.

I got the front suspension installed with a few minor hurdles:

- Front steer with 3100 truck axle, what a beast.
- Borgeson short shaft Vega steering box with 4X4 truck mount.
- Custom leaf springs, custom 3/8" shackles.
- Polyurethane bushings with gun drilled sized sleeves "no slop here", #8 greaseable bolts and custom steering arm.
- Speedway king pins, tie rod, drag link and disc brake conversion kit.
- Wilwood hubs and rotors coming.
- Viking adjustable shocks coming.

Default Az heat : )

Stewart , There are many thousands of valley dwellers that would give about anything to escape the summer meltdown as you are privileged to be able to do : ) My family moved to Phx . in 1956 and I know the heat wasn't as bad back then but soon came all the building and expansion and
explosion of growth and with it turned the valley into a heat sink of asphalt and concrete and the temps went up , all the orange groves and other agriculture went away for housing developments and associated wonderful growth Phoooey !! I live at 4800' elevation here north of the valley and on the weekends streams of burnt up overheated humans come up through here to try and escape that blast furnace for just a little while , downside they all have to go back to get ready for the next week : (

Oh and more importantly !! The frame looks really amazing and safe travel on your trip up the coast and enjoy the time you have away from the extreme heat . Also Diesel the dog will be appreciating being in a cooler climate , right now he's wishing he could take off that heavy overcoat !!!!

Very nice work on the front suspension! Those 3100 axles are beefy, but I like that. You got a couple more holes in your axle than I've been getting, and it looks great! Haven't drilled mine yet, but now I'm going to try to lay it out to get 15 holes also. Do you recall your spacing? Holes look like maybe 7/8"-1" or about that size?

Luckily I live in North Snottsdale up by Pinnacle Peak at 3,000 feet its about 10 degrees cooler than the valley we even get snow every couple years. Unfortunately your right the developers including ourselves are building at a ferocious pace and replacing the desert rapidly with pavement and rooftops I think Maricopa County (Phoenix) is still first in population growth.

The lighting holes in the axle are 1.0" and the spacing is .75" hole to hole edge. You may recall I was starting out with an Econoline axle much lighter but the 3100 was just more practical for a Trifive. Val, please critique anything I post there is not many with real world experience out there. Its your advice that the shackles are on the back on a front steer setup, thanks.

All I can say so far is your build looks great! I think I've done 2.5" centers using a 1/2 conduit holesaw that cuts 7/8" holes, just because that's what I had lots of laying around. But I'm going to go to a 1.75" spacing, and get the extra holes you got when I put the 3100 axle under my '39 Chev coupe. Just looks better with more holes!
Yes, shackles on opposite side you steer is always better. Just less deflection as the drag link pushes on the fixed side to turn.

What’s the height on the spring from perch to eyelets ? LOOKS Awesome and I especially like the gussets on the front and the way you tied the shackles together in the rear from side to side. Bunch of great little details all adding up to a sweet build
