Agreed. You can always fix. i would assume that the OEM brackets should be there yet. I would def go back to the OEM mounting points with some Adjustable control arms like TXST8tj stated. It will def be a better set up than you have now.

I will let the suspension gurus chime in, but you definitely have your work cut out for you. It would probably be easier to just go to a short arm suspension since it appears to have all the original brackets still in tact.

Well a few days ago I went outside of a gravel pit and ran the suspension up and down on some rock piles and nothing seemed to bind. I've got some squeaks from dry bushings and the quick discos make some noise but overall... It seems okay given the catastrophe I thought I was initially facing. The bump stop extensions work as they should, I have a wobble around 65... Not sure if that's geometry or the fact that the toe is off and the mud terrains are about as balanced as Oprahs diet. The only pressing issues I see myself tackling in the near future are tires, alignment, and tracking a leak in the line for the rear locker... Oh and lots, and lots of lube for the ca's.

Still no word on wtf happened to the company who built the ca's (or entire lift).
