Re: Rocky/Toyota Swap

Haven\'t had much time to work on it for the last couple weeks but I did get the rear axle mounted. I don\'t have a good picture of the way I got the pinion angle correct but what I did after I got the leaf springs in was jack up the Rocky under the leafs till it started to lift off the blocks then I took the angle finder and verified that the flat area where the perches bolt to was indeed 0 degrees. Then I took the axle on the floor and propped up the pinion until it was -2 degrees. From there I cut down the perches until I could weld on a 4\" long 1/4\" thick plate at 0 degrees.

I laid out the front axle this morning and it looks much easier than the rear. I\'d like to have it in by the end of the week so I can get the steering and shocks figured out this weekend.

A pic of all the brackets removed from the front.

Rear springs with Toyota under the Rocky. What I decided to do here was move the front spring mount forward 1 inch so that the rear shackle mounts wouldn\'t have to be moved further back (the stock one\'s are already at the very rear of the frame). This would mean that I\'d have to either redrill/punch the springs or just redrill the perch to compensate. I just redrilled the perch.

The new front spring mounts. 3/16\'s plate 6\" long with a 6\" long piece of 1.5\" angle. I may add gussets later.

The new rear shackle mounts. My mig was acting weird back here so the welds didn\'t look pretty so I spread a little body caulk after cleaning them up. I need to remove the gas tank to finish the top edge. The shackles on there now are just to hold it together for now. Once the front is in I\'ll make new ones to correct the height. Personally, I don\'t like the look of long shackles. I\'d rather add height by getting new springs or a body lift.

Hey, hey hey, that was a joke, don\'t go believing me!  :blush:

But I know it\'s not Hungarian, because I speak Hungarian. I don\'t think it\'s Finnish either, but I\'m not sure.

Acutally I think it\'s just a misspelling of the word \"interest\" .:pinch:

Now I ruined it.

But I just had to set the record straight. B)

Danke mein Freund.

It was just over 100 bucks for 3 mounts. I am using them right now. The lack of flex gives it a nice feel . Better control and throttle response is crisper. No complaints on vibrations.
