Got 6 of 10 boxes today. Going to do a little more plasma cutting this weekend and then start putting things on!

It's pretty intimidating now that I've checked everything out. Maybe it's just the volume of parts. I don't know......

This is the guy that takes a plasma torch to his front end and asks questions later? It's a bit late for second thoughts.

Haha. Yeah. The front end was tired. I'm not giving up. Just got a bunch of stuff! This is going to happen, just got to put a plan together on the next order of things to do.

I'm thinking just get right to mounting the front spring hangers. I already took a torch and hammer to the bulge in the frame. Everything looks level. I will need to fill the gap between the spring hanger and frame with something. I have plenty of flat stock for it.

I'm pretty sure my welder will handle this too. I'm going to Load up flux core wire for more heat and even pre heat too.

I was silly to think I'd get it done quickly. But I've got the space for it to sit for a few weeks.

I was going to make a joke along the lines of, "that's how I roll"

But clearly I won't be rolling in this thing anytime soon. Lol

1988 SAS build - need advice for beginning

Came across this while researching. I like the idea and had thought about it, maybe just going in a half inch for my build. Puts the whole hanger flush rather than leaving a 1/8+ gap under the cross member. Thoughts?

Its a good way to get it a little lower, but youll never be able to use an off the shelf bumper. Just make sure you have enough room under your steering box

I like it. Toyota did my SAS for me, but when I get around to rebuilding the stock hangars in front on the '85 I hope to do something similar.

Lower is more better.

Yeah. The guy calls it frenching in his thread on yota tech. At the least I'm going to go enough to close the gap in the crossmember.

You would be better served using a bumper reinforcement plate to fix the gap and strengthen your front crossmember. Unless you just want to go lower.

Perhaps. I'm still waiting on the rest of my kit. I believe there's a reinforcement plate in there as well somewhere. That may solve it, we'll see

The tg kit doesn't come with this, but this is what you're talking about right?
