Nice. Pay attention to the front axle drop bracket. It needs to be reinforced if they haven't already.

Bottom left bracket in this pic. Look it over good cause it is known to crack up at the top.

Ok. You will be fine on rotor size.

Not going to use them because they are from am expo but the guy sold it to me with the whole front end attached still, hubs rotors, calipers, extended brake lines, and even the cv axles

----------

One things I didn't notice u till I got home unfortunately is that is didn't come with the yoke for the front drive shaft to bolt to the transfer case. Do you happen to know what yoke is needed for that? Was trying to find the superlift p/n's but can find it separate from the entire shaft. If not I will take it down to my local 4x4 shop and see if they can get one.

I'm guessing you need this part?

This was the part number for that part when people built their own front shafts


Neapco CV Flange adapter N2-83-288X (Ford CV 6 bolt)

Yeah thats the one. finding parts diagrams with some 1354 transfer cases that have a normal u-joint yoke. Think it would be a direct fit if I took that 6 bolt mount out and got a yoke from a junkyard off another transfer case? Not sure if the innards are the same?

You would have to split the case open to swap output shafts. It'd be easier to just pick up the neapco adapter. I got mine from northern drivetrain for around 150 bucks.

That's what I was afraid of, looks like I'll be buying the adaptor and some lift springs here shortly then I'll start a build thread once I get going on installing everything.

Welcome to lifting. There is always something else to buy.

Can anyone running the FR36s springs let me if they will fully compress with stock shacoles or will I have to get longer shackles to prevent binding?
