Those look really good. No problems with the track bar hitting the front diff? Are those Lorenz towers?

Well the next projectat Titan machine is we are cutting off the old track bar mount at the frame and fabbing up a new mount and track bar . The shock towers are also made at Titan machines .I will get pic's of both when it is all done .

Are you guys going to be specializing in Dodge suspensions?

Be careful w/ 1" arms under 5-6" of lift. We had a guy w/ a Lorenz 2.25 SAW Suspension on his truck at Glamis. At full suspension cycle he mashed half of his driverside coil bucket w/ 1" CA's installed.

Just wanted to show another problem that arises if you move the axle foward 1" the sway bar has to be moved or the mounting bracket on the axle has to be moved I decide to move the mounting brtacket on the axle hopefully you can see by the pictures.

Im curious as to why you are going with 1" longer arms. We already know that 1/2" longer arms work great, so why are you going through all the extra work to gain another 1/2"? What are the benifits that you gain to offset the amount of work it takes to run them?

To answer your question I guess is I like a challenge and second of all when I first started this project I was trying to turn 33"x15.5"x18" on 10"x18" rims with only 2" of lift with out rubbing and with my after market front bumper I had a lot of room between the bumper and tire compared to backside of tire to fender .

why sleeve the bottoms and not the tops, or even sleeve them at all?
Truthfully I don't think they really need sleeved but when Titan Machines builds something I like to go the extra mile and build it for the WOW FACTOR

shock length does not determine lift - only coil spring length. Shocks are available in different lengths - not for adding lift, but to make sure that they are not the limiting factor in suspension travel.

The shock towers were designed so I could run the same part# of bilsteins that are in the front as I have in the rear .
