the spindles have been changed out...cuz whether or not theres a half stack or a full stack the suspension is gonna travel the same exact distance...that lock up i believe the spindles have been changed if not the upper A arms as well

mine locks up that high with the stock spindles. just put the balljoint extenders at 2 inches and it looks just like that. but the high lock up is not my taste, i keep them at 1 inch.

the more coil you have doesnt mean you're gonna lockup higher, it will just make you sit higher when dropped :cool:

yes the balljoints that extend to 2 inches will let you lock up like that :0

the balljoint extenders will let you lockup that high at 2 inches, which is what that pic looks like to me :0

i believe the spindle is the same size or the lincolns is a bit bigger. i do not believe it changes things.

if you use the extenders AND mount the ball joints on the bottom side you will achieve a very high lockup like that but if you ever hop at all its not recommended

mine is off and i do notice a minimum swerve but only when its locked up and drving on the highway, but as far as safety i been having it like that for 3yrs and no problem. :0 are you going with the spindle swap or balljoint extensions?
