    Frame was too thin. Fixed and going to order some different hose fittings this week to fit two resiviors.

    Awesome build. I'd love something like this but nowhere to really use it around here. Subscribed

    Rebuilding rebuilding rebuilding
    Changed out the oil in the coilovers (the shock oil is suppose to be blue in the second pic fyi), redid all the hoses so 2 shocks fit, and replaced the cv boots while I was at it. Now waiting for new LCA bushing to start re assembly.

    Nice!

    What stacks are in the C/O and smooth body? I'm always curious to see what valving multiple shock setups use.

    Hahaha. I am compiling lots of old parts but nothing of interest. I bolts, resi hoses, hose ends, bolts, and body panels so far.
    I've only revalved the c/o once up to a fox 90 stack comp. when I took it out with that it still seems pretty soft. So just to test now I kept the 90 stack in the c/o and just bolted on the smooth body. I didn't measure the shims when I took it apart and it wasn't engraved on the cap for some reason but I'm guessing it should be the standard 50 stack. With the shocks pressurized just by hand I could tell the smooth body is valved lighter. I did also up my bump stop pressure to 300 psi. So that's plenty of changes to get out and test with and I'll see where I want to go from there.

    Moved the front straps cause they were rubbing on the shock body and were a pain to get to with the shock in there. I also let it droop out a touch more. cv angle is ~23 degrees now, and am just under 14" of travel.

    I love this thing so much. If I could afford it, I'd buy another truck to slam and go this direction with my ecsb. This is the only form of lifted truck I'd be interested in owning tbh.

    Little car meet at work today.
    Yes the far left is an airplane fuselage on a toyota frame with a ford v8 on nitrous and a beer keg as a gas tank rat rod. And what cant be seen to the left of the camero is a bar stool go cart powered by a yz80 dirtbike motor. I should have got more pics. The highboy has a big block in it and moves pretty good and the camaro won with voting from employees and customers throughout the day as the favorite. It's apple blossom festival this weekend in town so there is a good size car show going on torrmorrow so there is stuff like this rolling all around town this weekend.
