Before I did any work on the front fenders I needed to decide what to do with my spare.
Leave the original spare.
Remove the spare and cover over the pocket.
Buy a new Torque Thruster and another T/A Radial.
I took pictures of all three with the hood open and closed and put them in my screen saver. By the time I needed to decide I had my answer TTO and T/A Radial.
I got a 5 x 15 TTO and had the largest diameter R/T Radial that I could have mounted on the wheel. I wanted to use as much as possible of the original fender pocket. I went with a 155 80 15.

I than determined where the links needed to be mounted. I fabricated the mounts out of some 2x2x angle iron. I mounted one inside the frame rail and the other to the underside of the rail sandwiching the rail between them. The links I made with some heavy walled pipe some 3/8 bolts and a connecting nut. I bought a new bushing kit for a S10. I will need to get some larger washers.

As I stated before I had already fabricated up the brackets for the sway bar for my S10 rear axle. I started with mounting the stock S10 sway bar to the front of the axle as opposed to the original mounting to the rear of the axle. My fuel tank sets between the frame rails and did not leave any room for arm links. I had some clearance issues with the differential so I spaced the bushings with a piece of flat stock.

I got everything painted yesterday and put it all together this morning. Not too bad if I have to say so myself. I hope this works. Did I mention that I had a power rack mounted to the rear of the axle, that is why I went forward. I want to thank Joe from the Stove Bolt page for his help.

The bushing brackets were a little long I trimmed them now they look much better. After a final mock up and off to paint.
