    Hey there OC, sorry to bug you with this, but you seemed to be the best option for the "go-to" guy to answer my question. I commented that the new format has dumped all of my previous photos posted to my build page, etc. As the reply says, you might be able to help with an answer.

    BTW, I have looked at your build thread countless times since joining the forum, and your rig has been an inspiration for my humble build-up. Thanks for all of the ideas and the humor along the way!

    Best regards from Alaska,
    Maxxmoto

    here are my questions:
    will the 3" expeditions springs solve the limited up travel problem?
    how prone is the rear axle housing to damage? i've read of it being bent.
    how drastic is the loss of turning radius with the total chaos front kit?
    which option would be best for crawling? which for desert? which for both?
    am i opening a can of worms with the long travel option?

    like you i'm also traveling (working on wind turbines though) and will have metal tech doing the install on my next interim trip. it's gonna be a one and done job so i want to get it right so i can go out and enjoy it on my time off at home.

    so, what do you think is the best option for the best do it all set up that includes highway travel? i'll have the omegas in the back on either set up.

    thanks for any advice you can give and stay safe out there,

    buck

    greetings,
    i'm a new fj owner and have been reading these pages relentlessly for the last 6 months or so. i've noticed that you have gone through numerous (i'm being polite here) suspension changes and was hoping that you may be able to give me some advice.
    i'm building an expedition style rig. it won't be seeing the likes of the rubicon trail and i don't see the point in mudding. it'll see moderate trails, dunes, oregon/washington forests and high desert. everywhere in this forum i read, "decide what type of wheeling you will do and pick your suspension accordingly." nowhere does it say, "if you want to do this, get that." oregon really has a bit of everything. i was dead set on the following set up until i met LT in person yesterday at metaltech... stage 8 from icon, cdc front and omega rears. LT said this would be, "a great start." i'm pretty sold on long travel now. i'd be getting the total chaos kit in the front and metal tech rear with expedition springs.

    Florida Bronco- Back spacing would need to be checked against the spindles for clearance. Since all wheels are slightly different- I'd suggest a test fit. As for the UCA's- most are designed to allow for the new geometry of the raised suspension to be placed back into factory specs. This works for 33" tires but for 35", getting the caster ahead of +3.5 degrees is a must to avoid collision with the firewall/ body mount (even chopped).

    hey OC, a few suspension questions. I have read and read and understand most of the IFS lifting issues, but maybe you can help me. If I add aftermarket UCA's and extend my coil overs to the full 3" and add 35's with say 4.5 BS wheels do I still need wheel spacers ? also added positive caster, if I get adjustable UCA's and move them and lower ahead, will the caster stay near stock? should I get the non adjustable ones like camber ball joint non adj? thanks!
