I dont know the answer to your question but If you go any bigger I look into getting a custom swing set steering done.

skyjacker 6" is the biggest you can get. Fix your track bar like I told you and you'll be fine

Looks better but your upper track bar mount needs to be up higher ( theres too much drop in it )

NOT like that!!! Thats ttb superrunner suspension...you DO NOT need that. The link on the driver side of the track bar needs to be moved UP.

I'd drill another hole in that about an inch up. You might have to notch the mount ever so slightly but It wouldnt take long

Yea dude, just make SURE the track bar and drag link are parallel with each other. Then your front end will be more or less finished...then on to the rear...
