Now its time to rip out the axles, cut off the brackets and clean the frame.





I rented a plasma to aid in this. It was fast and a lot easier than a saw zall and angle grinders.
Now you have to bolt weld the truss into place.


We welded one side of the control arms up to get an idea of angles and to make measuring easier.

We swaped the calipers from side to side to make clearance a lot easier.
I mounted my lowers out as far as possible until it was a straight line between them and the frame mounts. Once they are tacked in place set your pinion angle again you have to measure for your control arms. Cut, weld, and bolt them in. Now you can cycle the suspension.
