    What is your old ratio? 3.50? Current tire size?

    Raptor Liner

    I’ve read good reviews on Raptor. Biggest thing with any DIY kit is the prep work. They will also never be as durable as professional installs such as Line-X due to difference of chemical make-up & method of spraying.

    Welcome! Only a couple lurking here. Sadly facebook has almost killed Forums. But I refuse to throw in the towel. Please share the word! I have some decals available, message me if interested. Be sure to start a build thread too!

    Did you already order parts? I bet I can beat that price on parts

    I know plenty using the Herculiner roll on kits. They hold up well.

    Can’t think of shop name but tech was Chuck at a shop in salem. Maybe the one you mentioned? Be prepared to pay though... gear setup is time intensive.

    Finally got around to scrubbing out & pressure washing the block. Started assembly with my new Edelbrock Cam, Clevite77 bearings & reinstalled the crank. Need to torque the main caps. Then check ring gaps, install rings, pistons with new clevite bearings... and so on.

    Shenandoah Machine did my radius arms, drilled & tapped up a size to 1/2x13. Install went along smooth from here minus the fact the bushing sleeve in the upper trackbar mount was siezed to the bolt. Some cutting & welding required!

    Sadly... no. Dropped off both arms & caps at Harman’s Machine Shop, should be ready in the morning

    Today was less productive... the front has been fighting with the radius arms.

    1978 Ford F-150 Custom

    Rolled in Thursday evening, really got started today, plan to wrap up tomorrow. Rear was simplest place to start as less parts to remove... I was pleasantly surprised at how easily everything came loose. Had rear apart and assembled (minus shocks) within 1 1/2hrs. The front brought on some hassle. All 4 lower spring retaining bolts broke off with mild torque applied. We had to head up the driver’s radius arm to get it’s 4 bolts loose & I suspect passenger side will be the same. More pictures & updates to come so stay tuned!!
