I was having a problem with my body mounts and new body mount bolts I got. Two of the body mounts/sleeves are larger then the others and 2 bolts are larger and when I put them in position #3 the bolts are to large so I assumed they go on the rad support but the factory bolts are smaller also so I'm at a loss for where they go. I'm switching bolt pattern because I'm using a 8.8 rear and it is easier to change the front hubs to match then it is to weaken the hat in the rear by drilling a new bolt pattern and the 5x114.3/115 has a wider option for wheels that I'm interested in.

So I got the right side UCA mounted (I know the brackets are ugly) but they aren't forever just a temp to get these things into place. Over all I think the right side needs to come out 1/4 inch but that's one side fellas.. and ladies! I'm really happy with how things are going and I'm setting a goal by the end of January I want both arms done and the rear braced so I have 4 days off to do so. I have been debating to start a YouTube channel but I am always caught up in what I'm doing I'm not sure if I'd be a good host. Would you guys tune in? Let me know I'm thinking about it. Anyways here's a couple photos

I would probably tune in.

How much travel are you going to get in the front with the setup? Planning on using the stock upper shock mount in the frame or do you have other plans?

It should do 14-15 inches of travel. I'm going to be making a shock tower but I'm wanting to go coilovers as a next upgrade as I'll be buying coilovers for the rear and fabricated Spindles. For now I'll be ruining regular s-10 3.5 inch lift coils in the front.

So I got one side done, I need to box the rear of the bracket but I'm waiting because I made it pretty damn tight so I may end up cutting one side off and shimming it abit so there is abit of play. I'm going to wait to elevate the other side. So I drilled through the frame to start bracing with my 1 5/8 Dom tubing, that will allow me to cut off the angle iron and put the body back down on the frame. I'm ordering hubs tonight so I'm the very near future the front end will have tires on!

So I put my brace in and when I was taking off the angle iron I ripped part of my frame open... so I have to fix that but the car is sitting back on the frame so I can finish my control arms and start building the rear of the frame. I'm not sure how I plan to do that honestly I'd really like to have an axle before I do anything I may regret. Regardless a lot to be done yet again so stay posted. Also I'm sorry the photos can be dark but I'm working with what I have and the garage is brand new and not wired for lights yet. That's a whole different project. Please bare with me though haha I promise it'll get better

Work today was great I honestly could of finished the driver side control arms but it was a long day and packed it in. It's elevated on the driver side and the brackets are cut I also figured out why my suspension wasn't cycling as much as it should and it was just a hunk of metal on the inside of the spindle so a little grinding and WAM solved that problem. I'm hoping my hubs will be here this week I may or may not finish the control arms today (January 16 2017) and then it's on to the rear of the car. I'm having a hell of a time trying to find a 94-04 mustang rear diff.

I finished all my brackets and my hubs are in the city should be delivered tomorrow so I'll have front tires on the car and I got the motor set in place for now but I'll be making my own engine mounts. I also got an email someone selling a 99 mustang 8.8 so if he messages me back I'll go pick it up tomorrow

I'm not entirely sure at the moment. I'll have a better idea once I get the coils and have the motor and body all set in place
