    QUESTION:

    I will be adding ORI struts to my current build and was wondering if anyone knew the best angle to mount them?

    For the fronts, Do i mount them:
    - straight up?
    - slight pitch to the back
    - Do i pitch them inwards or outwards towards the top?

    For the rears, i typically see them pitch back towards the top. Are there any hard numbers on how to set them up?....

    Front's will be mounted on hoops and the rears will be mounted on towers frenched into the frame...

    Cheers,
    RIP OD, YOU'LL BE MISSED.... BUT that's OK 'cuz you've been REPLACED !!!

    Nice build IIRC I remember watching a episode of extreme 4x4 and Ian was doing a build and said you want 4 inches of up travel
    so 5-6" might be enough.

    OD 2.0 - HEMI'd and LCG TJ on 42's ~ A multi-year affair

    So.. No pics right now.

    I am dealing with clearance issues..

    I cut out the lca axle brackets that were there on the rear and replaced them with 0 degree tmr brackets. When i tacked them in, i turned them down to about 35 degrees. I threaded out my lca's to compensate and that made a huge difference!!!! In essence i have about 8"of uptravel now and the tire fits right into the wheel well

    So, with that done i then started in on the ori mounts. What i quickly realized though was that due to the fact that this is a CC 14 bolt, i just dont have the clearance on the calipers for the oris... It appears i can get the upper shock towers in there, once they are frenched into the frame. For the lower shock mounts, the towers came with mounts tha jut out from the rear of the axle tubes, which will help with clearance, but no luck on the calipers..

    I have seen some articles on moving th calipers to the front of the axle... Has anyone done this? How does that work? Do i have to reverse them? Wont the bleed now be on the bottom if i move them to the front of the axle?

    Regardless, i will have to get new caliper brackets as the ones on there now are welded on as opposed to bolted to that square flange..

    Lots of work, it should look good when done. I would think you could get new brake brackets and then just swap the calipers left to right so the bleeders are still pointed up.

    Had a good morning!! Ended up trimming the hood to fit the highline fenders. Turned out not bad. Had to take about 3" all along the edge. Some of the cross channels then had to be sanded down to give proper clearance. I am just going to run door edge trim along the cut (Picked some up at Cdn Tire).


    Also was able to flip the caliper on one side of the 14 bolt. What a pain it was to get the existing caliper bracket off.. The new bracket bolted to the existing drum flange. Because i had already ground off the back of the flange to clear the rear shock mount, i had to cut off a bit of the bracket and only run 3 bolts to mount instead of 4. I don't see it has a problem though..

    At this point, the rear is done. I have full clearance, about 7" upwards and 7" downwards travel.

    I wanted to avoid a BL as much as possible but in the end i had no choice and went with a 1". The original driver was ATLAS clearance. Even with the BL, i still had to cut a hole in the floor. But now that i have the BL in place, i see where it has helped me clear the rear shock towers, front shock tower crossover brace, motor, definitely exhaust etc........

    Little update... So, i decided to spend my tax return on something i never would do. But in the end, i looked at how much work i had left and then looked at how much time i had coming up and with summer approaching...


    Front is done!! I decided to farm it out to National in Smith Falls for putting together the front end for me as I had little to no time to do so... Very very beef!!! Everythings just loosely bolted together and i have not yet set ride height... Those will come. For now, it is ready for full tear down again for hopefully the last time, fix the hole in the floor, start sanding/primer/paint basically everything, final welds, fuel, cooling, TC support bracket, flip the other rear caliper, sway bars, setup shifters for tranny and TC, start work on the engine wiring, tranny cooler, driveshafts, exhaust, finish hydro assist setup and a shit load of misc items... Yeah.... We're almost there !!!!
