The knuckle's were tacked into place and checked for proper alignment.









With the alignment set the knuckles were welded permanently into place. Darren did the welding while Chad slowly rotated the housing.



The housing was then reinstalled and mock-up of the steering began.

I'll do my best paul to get not only this build but two others caught up this weekend. I plan on sitting in front of the computer all day tomorrow playing the role of book keeper & web dude updater! Stay tuned!

Default Re: PD's Drivetrain Upgrade

Getting back to the front suspension the next thing we needed to do was come up with a strong and simple hoop for the coilover that would work on both the left and right sides. On the driver side we have the steering box and shaft in the way and on the passenger side the alternator was going to be problem. So a pair of hoops were bent up with the driver side being slightly different but mounting points of the coilover are the same.







For extra strength both sides of the frame were drilled so that the hoop would pass thru the entire frame.





Not sure why I don't have any pictures of the driver side hoop but I will with the next update. Also, oval mounting plates will be added to the frame around each tube for additional strength.

These next few pictures are for paul so that he can see how wide the front axle is. Total axle width is 68" and the wheel that is on the Scout is a 15" x 10" wide w/ 3.75" of back spacing.







We will probably go with wheels that have either a 4.5" or 5" of back spacing.

Some more parts have come in as well. We got in a wider curry rockjock60 since we initially planned on 63" and ended up at 68". We ordered this housing without ends this time in order to keep the final product as straight as can be. Once all the brackets, truss, etc are welded on we will then center and weld the ends in place.



Ctm's showed up this week for the front axle.



A set of dynatrac dynaloc hubs were ordered in instead of the usual warn's since these are a low-clearance type hub when compared to the warn. Since we plan on 4.5"+ of back spacing we want to try to keep the hub in the wheel as much as possible.







And finally we ordered in some Bilstein air bumps and mounting cans. These will be mounted above the kingpin right next to the coilover.





Stay tuned as we continue on with the front suspension and axle this next week.

The axles and ctm's were put together.



Darren made up the struts to hold the back of the engine up. By putting these extra struts in it takes a lot of weight off of the 700r4 transmission bellhousing.


Next up was to set the suspension height so that 37" tires would clear. We have yet to install a 1" bodylift which will help with tire clearance but May not be enough with 37's.





With max height set the air bumps were mounted in place. The suspension was then flexed out in different directions to make sure there were no clearance issues.

Default Re: PD's Drivetrain Upgrade

The same was done on the driver side except this hoop was a little wider in order to go around the steering box.



With the hoops main structure built they were removed from the frame and welded up. Gussets to the airbump can will be added later.



The hoops were reinstalled and for the first time the Scout was set down in the front on its new suspension.







This coming week gussets will be added to the towers/airbump cans and a crossover bar tying the two hoops together will be added in.

Extra tubing was added to the bumpstop cans to help strengthen the entire setup.







Teflon pads are going to be added to the top of the kingpin plates to help keep the bumpstops quiet when coming in contact.



A removable crossover bar was added next to again add additional strength and support the front coilover reservoirs.







The front hoop system was then painted and installed.

The shock hoop assembly was prepainted and then permenately welded into the frame.









A tubular straight steer was bent up and welded into place as well.



The psc hydrualic steering assist ram was mounted to the axle.



Darren came up with a great idea on the rear shock mounts and reservoir mounts and went ahead and fabbed everything up.

We stopped fabbing long enough to deal with the rust issues the Scout had. A quarter panel patch was installed on the driver side quarter panel and both rear lower quarters were reapainted as they had rust bubbling under the paint.













As usual Mike did a fantastic job on the body work!

Fender flares were mocked up. They were trimmed to go around the side molding. We have not decided whether the flares will stay black or get trimmed.







Check back next week as we get more done.

Seeing that its been months since I've updated any threads I thought I would lock myself in a room with my computer and start updating threads. So here is the conclusion of this build which is almost done at the time of this posting.

A few more parts rolled in like the limit straps and bumpstops for the rear.





Darren made some special bolts that will both hold the rear coil spring in place and the bumpstop.



Darren then notched the frame and welded in the rear swaybar mounts.







Darren assembled the remaining rear suspension to perform another test of all parts.

Default Re: PD's Drivetrain Upgrade

With the designing and mock-up of the rear suspension complete Darren removed the housing, finished welding all the brackets, and then set the alignment bar thru the housing and welded on the housing ends.





The rear axle truss was welded up as well and tied into the rear diffy cover.



After that the Yukon gears and ARB were installed.





One thing that caught us off guard was the fitting of the RuffStuff cover to the housing once everything inside was assembled. The bearing caps on the curry housings sits up a little higher than a stock Dana 60 so the cover was modified some more for additional clearance.



With the housing completed it was reinstalled under the Scout and all the suspension components were bolted on for the last time.

With the rear axle back in place Darren finished it off by sliding in the curry axles and installing the wilwood disc brakes.





At this point tires were mounted on the Scout and it was rolled in the shop for the first time in six months. Even though at this point we were far from done it was nice to actually see it roll.



Next to be installed was the front swaybar setup. Darren notched the frame for the custom machined bushing holders and mounted in the front swaybar. From there the suspension was cycled to make sure all components cleared.













With all clearances set Darren welded in the swaybar mounts and added gussets.
