You can also simply remove the front shocks and put some 3/8" all thread replacing the shock and tighten it down lowering it to ride height as has been suggested.

NEW INTERIORS Looking good so far.. I see you also clipped the frontend... Just keep in mine your lower a-arm and your bottom bar should end up close to lever with the ground at ride height....

NEW INTERIORS When setting one up.. Take out all springs or coilover's And set the whole frame at ride height.. If you set everything up at ride height you shouldn't have to put the body on to do it... Frames are built this way everyday... Once you have the frame set up at right height, The added extra weight should be set back to where you started from..At ride height..

andrewakessler The links are adjustable.

The reason I started with the four link before adding the engine / cab was because I live in Maine and was hoping to move the frame & cab inside (together) for the winter. Doesn't look like it's going to happen.

I also won't be able to paint the frame until it warms up again in the spring, so it probably makes sense not to weld it up.

Thanks for the help,

Unless you have adjustable links, I would try to get everything together, check it out, then back apart for final welding, painting.

Burn In Triangulated Four Link?

So many questions from me these days...

I have tack welded my triangulated four link onto my frame, but did so by estimating the ride height. The cab and engine are currently not on the frame while they are being rebuilt. I'm wondering if I should finish burning in the four link or wait until I have the cab and engine mounted to confirm the correct ride height.

Thanks,

-A
