    Scrounged around in my garage yesterday for scrap steel and lowered the front diff 2"1/4 to get the axles back to a normal position. Tested it out in the Mesa and all is well. I will drop the diff again to finish the welds and add more support, but for $1.50 in scrap, 3hrs of work and a prayer to the redneck gods.....I'd say I'm pleased. Now on to redesigning the upper control arms and replacing the cv boots.

    I like it!

    This guy here was always going to be my inspiration for when the time came.

    Here is my 99 expedition before and after removing the four corner air and doing torsion lift, 2in spacers, wheels and tires.

    Got some junk yard black NASCAR wheels from an F150 and put some 285/70r17 BFGs on them.

    I replaced the font/rear sway bar links and in the rear I drilled holes about 3 inches lower to make sway bar level with the ground and to keep it away from my trac bar.

    If all you want to do is take out the factory rake then you can adjust your torsion keys. After that adjust the camber.

    Almost bigger than the trailer.

    Also found another 4" lift (last one is going in the truck I'm flipping), this time rough country, going down to Everett next weekend and pulling it. $300 this time.

    Awesome, a fellow black and tan, though I've almost stripped all the old man tan.

    I really dig the sway bar idea, I've reached the stage of it being obnoxious and needed an idea.

    Thinking I'll use what you did for inspiration.
