you cut the center of the front cross member about 90% through from the top, then use a portapower or other means to open the cut you made up to the desired expansion, weld in steel in the gap, then mold it all in so you can claim it was never done,,,, :biggrin:
What's the purpose of doing it???

The reason you do this is so you can hop on 13's and you will not bottom out. ;)

you cut the crossmember bottom open and sides (slice shaped cuts) allmost all the way up to the top in the middle of the crossmember and bend it so it gets angeled. then you cut pieces to go in there and weld it together.

same effect as if you would drop the frame down on a big rock so it lands on the crossmember, -the frame would bend sidewise. lol
i think you know what i mean...

this makes the cylinders/springs stand more vertical down and not so much at an angle as they do og.

og the cylinders/springs is leaning alot more and that causes you to loose force when hopping. so it's a good idea...

you'll have to make new enginemounts and make everything line up again afterwards like the steering linkage and body mounts e.t.c, e.t.c but there's allways tricks to do all that...
