Don't see why that wouldn't work.
dont worry, be happy!! =D
So, are you the only Texan not at HF?
Just about, I wanted too but I was gone on that 4 day ranch trip last weekend so no way I was getting away again this soon.
Oh yeah, I forgot about that.
I got mine from Total Chaos, but they are 1". You can get mine at a bunch of places on the web.
Make sure you get the right size and try to get stainless. All Pros current literature says they are using 1-1/4" FK balls, but all of my searches tonight do not show Fk making or selling a 1-1/4" ball.
Here are some links for 1-1/4" balls (Aurora balls - not fk):
Recent pricing from Camburg http://www.dezertrangers.com/vb/fab-shop/137331.htm#post2607812
AP is selling theirs for $49 which seems too cheap to be stainless with Teflon lining............hmhmhmh maybe they are a cheaper version http://www.allprooffroad.com/05tacomafrontsuspension/05upperaarms
You could also source them through Kartek or Poly Performance too.
I used 3.5" on my Tacoma and it worked great. 3" is a tight squeeze, but you can pull it off. Mine was tighter than anyone else's because my spring perches are further in. Here's how I managed to shoehorn it in
My favorite is Front Range, but Marlin and Trail Gear sell almost the same kit as All Pro.
Cool. What bolt diameter? 7/16", 1/2", 9/16"?
It's from Front Range, 9/16"
I found some 3.25" wide x 9/16" round bend u bolts online. The possible problem is that they are 10.5" long. I could always cut the tails off but I wonder if it would leave enough thread. The other problem is that they're $11.50 each. For that price I may as well just buy a kit.
Having some extra thread is nice just incase you add shims etc to the rear. I almost didn't have enough when I added the new shims because I had cut the extra off to far, and I still don't have enough for the relocation blocks.
Yup, I searched and couldn't find anything on the web. I guess I could of just asked someone here. I didn't wanna give them my money, but oh well.
