  1. I think it's more of a question of if the upper ball joint can take the additional force.
    I'm thinking it's not a good idea now. Those uppers are not very beefy, and those little bolts arnt that strong

  7. A quick update. I sourced a 8.5 10 bolt to replace the goofy large 8 7/8.
    Then practiced a new skill. Installed 4.10 gears and a limited slip, because I could LOL

    And since the axle is out I inspected my crossmember I made to use the GM 4 link IMG_20181013_201229_164.jpeg 20181017_191309.jpeg 20181017_191340.jpeg

    That orange engine sitting by the car makes a fun contrast against the green, a red or orange wheel lip showing might be cool too, or not???
