well i have been working on the rearend some lately. it is pretty much in place. deff not finished b/c my welder hates me. im going to get a new welder as soon as taxes come in and i pay off this damn washer and dryer, lol. im going to get a lincoln sp180t. i debated getting a powermig but im sure the sp180 will do great in comparison to the current one.. and i'll just save my splurging on a tig welder... later.

i started and basically welded only what i had to to get it to hold good. i will finish weld and reweld what has been done. i will also be redoing the front crossmember mounting plates once i get a decent welder.

i know the krugel kit uses the stock factory crossmember and bolts to it. but they switch to different upper control arms as well as have a much higher stance in the rear than i want. this new crossmember is much stronger, allows me to use factory links (so irs will work later on) and is up about 4" higher.
