Roberts question

hey carl i had a listener write in and ask a question maybe you could help answer this its a little beyond my know how Don't hate me but I'm gutting the leaf springs in the front. I did not want to look at the crowded front bumper anymore.

Can I fabricate a curved upper link on a 3 link? I understand it will be heavier and harder to adjust since it will have to stay vertical. I see track bars bent to clear oil pans all the time. I want to fab the upper arm, it will give me 4 inches of more compression. Well worth the time....if it can be done?

Listener Feedback:

Hi Greg and Jeff,

You asked our opinion about upgrading your jeep's axles and tires. In episode 25 you mentioned that there is a kit to make your rear axle full float and your front full float with part time 4wd. I think this is a better idea than spending a lot of dollars on new axles. I would update your axles with the full float kit and run 37's.  You are only losing about 1 1/2 inches of ground clearance for a lot less money. Spend the money on skid plates, Rock sliders and a good winch.

Love the show. Keep up the good work
