    Hi Ingo,


    Nice to hear from you. It sounds like you have some good plans for your truck.


    Yes I have an adjustable 4-bar with coilovers from T.C.I.


    I recently replaced my "donated 9" and third member with a new unit from Currie enterprises, with a 3.0 trac loc differential. It really helps when I want to get off the line a little faster. I also upgraded to ford explorer rear disc brakes while I was at it.


    I haven't been doing many shows lately, just taking a break and trying to enjoy just driving my truck when I can.


    Yes please keep me posted with your progress on your truck.


    Your Friend


    Wayne


    P.S. my email is ctweedt@roadrunner.com

    Thanks WillyG, My control arms are nearly level, with them being slightly higher than horizontal at the inboard end, maybe a 1/2". This is after the break-in period and the springs are set.

    As far as the rake goes, it is 3" measured from the bottom front of front fender and the rear bottom of rear fender. At the bumpers it is 12 1/2" and 7", but I raised and tucked the rear bumper and tucked the front bumper about 1 1/2".

    Remember that your springs will sag about 1 1/2"to 2 "after about 500 Mi.

    B/B Ford, i left you a comment in a thread then realized that you may never go back there so here is what I was wondering:
    I like your stance of your truck. I'm using the Mustang 2 with stock spindles, my question for you, is your upper control arm level with the ground or is it slightly angled down with all the front clip on?
    Mine right now is that way but I don't have all the sheet metal on yet. When I stand on the front frame horn with my girlie 200 lbs the upper control arm is almost level on that side. The other question I have is your rake on your truck about 3" back to front ?

    Thanks

    my comments were in no way mean or confrontational. they were merely an opinion. Ranger429 voiced his opinion, i voiced mine and said nothing more then what others have said. i'm sorry you misinterpreted my posts...
