Lower Link Mount

With the lower links mounted higher but still not too steep, we realized that the separation at the frame end of the links was pretty close. We wanted at least 4 inches for flat links to better transfer the forward drive power of the axles, but only had 21⁄2 inches of separation between the centers of the rod ends. To raise them on a normal TJ would be a problem, as they would hit the tub, but since our Jeep is going to be a truck we felt we could move them up above the framerails. First we had to cut off the L-bracket of the mount.
