Question about the rear 4-link mounts on the axle in this pic:

I'm looking at this and seeing that the lower mounts have pivot points (at the joints) that's above the centerline of the axle tube/shaft.

I've not seen lower arm mounts attached to an axle that high before......

Any concern that the axle won't rotate sending the pinion upwards and possibly causing the lower arms to bind up against the upper arms - particularly when torque is applied - on an uphill climb - or similar?
Thanks Troy

As far as the links, no worry what so ever. There are quite a few build over on Pirate including Ashman that have used it and its worked great.

I think its a dang good idea. Ive seen it done before, and have not seen any issues with the design assuming the mounts are strong.

You should ask Vetteboy about his raised links=stress goes to infinity thoughts!
Haha I ain't even about to ask him about that

Re: Just Another XJ on tons, coilovers, 42's, etc. Build

Did you run the numbers on your upper link mounts for each location?
I have just about the same multi hole set up and the changes on the upper frame mount are HUGE!
You run from an instant center of 120 to somethink like 240 I'd bet.

And who the hell trusses a 14bolt? You will need a fork lift to move that bastard!

I don't know, Justin is pretty beefy. He can probably deadlift that.

Thing is, i've added maybe a total of 20-25 lbs to the whole axle... Hell my rear axle is quiiite a bit lighter than my front.

Re: Just Another XJ on tons, coilovers, 42's, etc. Build

I have seen one man carry a 14 bolt axle before. We had to lift it for him, but he carried it 20-30 feet with a towstrap around his neck and one in each hand.

(Ross (foxwar71) at the all-you-can-carry junkyard event a few weeks ago)

freerider15 - great build. As usual it makes me wish I had the fab skills, time, and money to put into a project like this.

Wow, awesome work! I really gotta learn how to weld one of these days. As you're demonstrating, the possibilities are nearly endless...

Can't believe your landlord had an issue with you doing that in your garage. You also mentioned it's back in your garage now, new place?

Yeah its in MY garage now, so I don't have to drive 10 minutes everytime I wanted to work on it. As well, I'll be able to work on it much earlier and later in the day. Yeah my old landlord or shall I say Realty company I could go on and on about the situation was so screwed up...guess thats one of the benefits of being a college student
