  1. Here's what I use: https://www.kartek.com/parts/cbr-radiator-weld-on-mounting-kit-with-urethane-pads-will-also-fit-pwr-and-ron-davis-radiators.html I can't speak to the quality of these but they are cheap and narrow. You could probably keep it pretty low on the cage? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0829NN8TP/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B0829NN8TP&pd_rd_w=svI4O&pf_rd_p=45a72588-80f7-4414-9851-786f6c16d42b&pd_rd_wg=4zLxD&pf_rd_r=7KSNTKD38446GZJJPAXD&pd_rd_r=3300e87d-0e28-43e8-8a0b-4815a3d5d978&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyRU5XMlVRUzVMTE45JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzA5MzUwMlJUQTRCWTBXM0gyVCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNjUwMjk0Mk01S1UxUjFJUlAxNCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2RldGFpbCZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= ~jw
  2. Kartek sells some nice radiator mounts to put it on the rear cage behind the seats. It come with rubber pads and won’t crack the radiator when the chassis twists. I’ve used them on several cars. One of the board members on here did a couple VW to Honda swaps and used replacement jeep Cherokee radiators from amazon or eBay. They’re pretty cheap and come with three fans. Also, I use all silicone instead of rubber elbows and aluminum tubing for my coolant lines. They last forever and allow the radiator to move around in its mount a little. Rubber gets hard and brittle over time.
  3. Just got mine last week. Looks awesome. Haven't had a chance to put it on yet but very high quality. Thanks Jeff! ~jw
  4. I wouldn't. The spiral clips are super cheap on McMaster Carr.
  5. The sway bar was a game changer for my car. So much better. Would a sway bar that the arms come forward from the rear of the car work? Like a lot of the Ultra 4 cars or TT are running?
  6. Nope...he didn't buy it. Wanted way too much money for it.
  7. Two of my buddies have the new F150 ecoboost 3.5 w/ tow package. One tows a small toyhauler 10K loaded. The other tows a 22' enclosed w/ a 4 seat X3 in it. Both say powerwise, it pulls no problem with the 10 speed trans but it does sway quite a bit, especialy in the wind. They both run weight distribution hitches with sway control. I looked at replacing my 7.3 with one a while back. The 3.5 ecoboost is rated 13,200, and the 5.0 is rated at 11,500. I think if your towing less than 10K you'll be fine with the Ecoboost. They do make the 2.7 that tows quite a bit less.
  8. Looks like you have uni-balls upper and lower so you won't be able to adjust it much. Maybe a little from the heims on the arms at the bulkhead and A-pillar by moving them in or out? Does your car have a sway bar? Love the look of that thing!
  9. Mine used to do the same thing. How much caster do you run? I had like 11-12* stock. I think I changed it to 6* and it's still stable at over 100 mph. The sway bar really helped too. I run a 1 1/8" solid sway bar.
  10. Looks like 15" center to center on between the upper A arm pivots, and 8.5" center to center from the upper A arm pivot bolt to lower A arm pivot bolts. The 8.5" is what it was stock. The only one I changed was the distance between the upper pivots, which shortened my upper arms. That was the dimensions from Daves newer DD bulkhead design.
  11. I never got the file from my Buddy Tim who plugged the measurements into Solidworks. I don't think he has that file anymore because his computer quite working shortly after we did that project and he got a new one. I can take some measurements on my car if you need me to? I belive I kept the height the same as it was stock, but I moved them out about 7" or so. I might have even posted up the measurements on my thread...I'll have to go back through it and look.
  12. No...sorry Kevin. I've been doing a remodel so the attic is a disaster. They are buried up there somewhere. I'll be up there tonight and I'll look for them.
  13. Welcome to the addiction! Nice setup. As stated above....try to ride with someone or be within waking distance of a road or camp. Sh&*t happens....often at Glamis. Never go straight over anything....just assume it's straight down or someone is on the other side and you'll be fine. Have fun!! ~jw Oh ya....don't haul ass in the washes! You will find a berm track eventually!
  14. If you put the whole system back together and power bleed them you’ll be fine. If you don’t have access to a power bleeder just bleed them until the fluid is clean, then a little more.
  15. Gotcha...you'll be able to adjust it somewhat with the bias bar on the dual MC's.
