    It is coming along nicely Tyler, I am jealous! Only concern I have is the front links and the amount of vertical separation. We have another club member with a similar setup and under torque he is breaking u-joints like twigs. We are having to separate his links to help this, he was only at around 12" to begin with, not sure where we will end up. The mastermind you are I am sure you have taken this into account and I trust your figures over mine, just throwing that out there for you

    Love you man, see you ASAP

    I'm around 16" separation at the axle. That should be plenty from what I figured. I'm hoping my little 90hp TDI can even turn the tires much less snap anything. We shall see. I miss all you guys up there.

    What conditions is he snapping ujoints in? Just acceleration? Flexed out? If it's under flex it's probably because the link geometry is rotating the pinion too much. If it's acceleration then there's likely slop somewhere. I did tons of research into four link design before I ordered parts. And plenty more during the mock up phase. Have him PM me if he has any questions or anything. Or you have my number too. I'd be more than happy to share what little I know.

    I got a little work done on the floors over the last two days. Turned out to be tougher than I thought it would be. But still not too bad. I wish I was further along on them but such is life. They are just sitting in there and will be for a while. I need to figure out if I'm going to weld the body mount bolts into the brace and leave the floor solid, drill holes in the floor so I can access the bolts or weld nuts into the braces and have the bolts come up from the bottom. I also need to finish weld the frame and get it all wrapped up before I can truly finish the floors. I didn't realize this until I got to this point. Maybe this weekend I can get the frame all wrapped up and go on with the tub. I gotta say, it's now much easier to put the seats in and make vroom vroom noises than when it was braces. Just figured I'd give a quick update. This is probably more floor than there was when I bought it. Right Puddin?
