Hi Jeff,
love the progress on the 800B. What is the max tire diameter you think would fit with that suspension setup?

I'd say a set of 32x10.50 or 11.50 should fit comfortably. Earlier 800's and 80's May have a tougher time with the 32's as they sil about an 1" lower on the frame.

Jeff,
do you think a shackle reversal kit would give you any additional clearance? I have a 69 800a that I would like to do this to but would like to be able to run 33 x 12.50 tires. I too am excited to follow this build, since it seems similar to what I am trying to do with my sons for what will be their daily driver in a couple of years.

I don't think a reverse shackle kit will give any more lift than what it currently has. Stay tuned though as a CPT reverse shackle kit is in this Scout's future.

Why did International put the lowering block on the rear passanger side? Mine had the same, and after replacing the spring packs (and taking out the lowering block) the passanger side sits about an inch higher than the drivers side.

I don't have the answer as I wish I knew myself. I can only speculate but some day I hope to hear from an old IH factory worker who knows the actual correct answer.

Got my btl - built to last hood lift strut kit for the Scout 80/800 from my brother Isa. After installing the kit in just under a half hour I must say this kit is worth every penny. Nice directions with color pictures made the install a breeze. And as a plus the hood goes much higher than before. These kits are sold at Isa's IH Isa's International Harvester: Scout 80,800,a,b hood lift strut kit Or they are also available on our online store - hood lift strut kit for 61'-71' Scout 80/800 - International Scout partshere are some pictures of the conversion.

I have an 800B (in similar condition) which May be receiving all the same treatment. Not looking to crawl over any boulders, just looking to build a good looking daily driver.

Thanks for the play by play.

Jeff, I was hoping to have the 80 done before I deployed so I could do a product review for you on the CPT, but with problems with the sandblaster and other hold ups, it didn't happen.my early impression is; by following this thread I was able to bolt the system right on. With d27 axles there would not be a need to drill the plates for the larger u bolts. I did check my LST and found out I do have a d44 in the rear, that's why I needed the bigger u bolts. With the body and drive line installed the ride height is more aggressive then stock (obviously) and I have had a lot of positive comments. I have an old set of 33's on it now to make it a roller in the paint booth and they seem to fit fine, but I still have to bolt on the front clip and put in the dash. Not sure how much more she will settle. I hope to start a builders thread with photos while I am out here. Thanks for your help.

Been thinking about ordering this suspension kit for my 1967 800 and I just have a couple quick questions. Have you had any issues with bump steer once the kit was installed? Also, I have the d44 rear and d27 front. I'm assuming the u-bolts will work with those axles. Let me know if I need to order anything differently than what is listed on your site. Any updates on ride quality and performance? The stance looks great. I'm hoping to get enough height to clear 31's nicely. Got my eye on a set of swampers in the 9.5" width so I can keep the stock wheels.

Thanks!

Piglet,

just let them know when you order it what axles you have and they will send you the right parts. The mix up on mine was because we assumed that I had 27's front and back because it was an early Scout, but turned out that I had a d44 in the rear. Jeff sent the bigger u bolts out right away for me and answered all of my questions cheerfully.

I haven't driven mine yet (see deployment build up) so I can't say about the bump steer, but installation was a snap and the height is awesome! Not so high as to look like it is "lifted" so much but just right. Like they should have looked to begin with.

I love this kit and highly recommend it.

Doc

As docg posted just let us know what axle combination you have and we will supply the ubolts to go with.

As for ride quality and such I have put quite a few miles on Stumpy(the Scout featured in this build) and so far everything is holding up just fine. I haven't noticed any bumpsteer and the ride quality is decent for such a vehicle. Our shop is on a windy road and the Scout absolutely hugs the road just fine even with the extra weight of the v8 engine. As with any forward shackle Scout the ride is a bit choppy but a future reverse shackle kit install should cure most of that.

A 31" tire should fit fine but the super swampers are not the best road tire out there(in my opinion) so keep that in mind when shopping for tires.

Nice 800 to start a build Jeff!

I have a 63 s80 that was "bastardized" by an IH dealer and has a 266 v8 in it. It's set back like the 152 was and has a 13 leaf spring pack on the front and doubled rear springs that are side by side on the rear. I havent really got to doing anything with it yet, but its on the docket for being "brought back to life" in the near future. Since it has a 266 in it would the springs that you used on the 800 be a good match for my 80?

The springs will work on either a Scout 80 or 800. The online store somewhat breaks it down for you so that you can order your kit as needed.

Great post so much great info. I plan on doing this lift to my 80 soon with the reversal upfront. Im torn on weather to do the CPT long travel front with the 80/800 rear pr just stick with the 80/800 kit. Pros/bemmifits to eather or any info on helping make that choice from some experance would help. . I drive my 80 basically stock everyday and I'm sick of bouncing down there road its not a Bronco lol.
