you should be fine with two pumps, four dumps, six batteries, six solenoids. this is a nice street set up, since you said your new to juice. as for the three wheelin', it would be best to reinforce the rear arches, upper & lower a-arms, crossmember, and the upper a-arm mounts. best way to do so is with 3/16" or 1/4" steel. make a template of the part to be wraped then tranfer it to the steel. cut it out and start welding it to the frame, bending it as you go. its a real pain in the ass with the body on the frame, therefore i would take it to a shop for the install and reinforcements. if your wanting to do a standing 3 you'll prabally need a chain bridge, unless you want to run a shit load of batteries for weight. in that case you'll need that much more reinforcement.


my opinion would be to start simple and get use to it. you can always upgrade later. :cool:

6" front, 10" rear. your going to want a coil over rear set up regardless. its just far superior to the old school coil under. i'll be nice and post a couple of links in a minute. :biggrin:

:uh: dude 12"s with a decent spring will bind up the drive shaft, let alone 14"s. you can three with 8"s in the back, you just have to be bustin a corner. it all just depends on how wild you want to go with it. such as slip driveshaft, adjustable upper and, or lower trailing arms, ect. :0

:uh: hmm i guess i dont know my fords then.....guess that LTD wont have the same suspension as my lincoln.........not............10s will bind the shaft just as much as 12s or 14s.....with stock arms and stock shaft with powerballs you will only get 9" of lift out of the cylinder.....you cant 3 wheel these big cars on 8s...for 1 its retarted to even consider a cylinder that small back there...and 2 my linc would bearly roll a 3 on 12s.....this isnt no gbody were talking about here...fords are fucking picky.....ask anyone else with a ford....if you want a 3 wheel they will tell you 12" min 14 recommend......you dont drive with the rear complelty locked anyway.......you lock up..then dump it a little....thats all you need to do...click 1 of the vid links in my sig....14s...stock arms, stock driveshaft, powerballs,...NO coil at all.....with coil the 3 wheel is even bigger..but i ride with accumes in the back so i dont need coils.............................


to the guy with the ltd........get atleast 12s...but like i said if you want a good 3 wheel and plan to do it alot....get prohopper comp 14" cylinders and your good to go...also run power balls with a coil over setup
