You did not say "you need more triangulation you @#$%", so it is all good... I am goood with criticism. The reason I have less triangulation is because of the panhard bar, I don't want it to eat up joints. I have about 1/2 inch on the axles still, if there is no binding when I cycle test everything I may break the tacks and try them out farther..?

Here are a couple pics. Getting everything tacked into place and starting the clearance/flex testing.. I guess I should have tested the tube insert before welding!!!!! One side had the wrong threads on it and the tube did not extend and contract it just worked it's self up and down the tube!!! And Tony the trackbar is not single shear, I just have not moved the other side of the bracket. ;D

Since we are on the topic of track bars, here is the frame side boogered into place.... You all must think I am a great welder because no one has commented.. I know I am not. Any thoughts or opinions? I still need to weld on the braces.

I got everything mocked up and flexed it to put on the upper shock mounts. Snapped a few poser pictures cuz it looks cool. Then I broke the tack welds on the trackbar checking clearances.. Seems the steering stabilizer is stronger than my track welds...... Also found out the tie rod and drive shaft don't flex so well..... (lost 5" of possible drop)
