ok i looked closely at how the brackets/holes line up. i see how they work now, the journey brackets are lame
Looks very thin. I took a ton of orthographic photos of my front stock steel hangers with measurements before I mounted them. Building beefy adjustable fronts seems simple enough. I can't seem to locate a LONG through bushing like the stock hangers use. Journey's uses a solid DOM tube, no rubber or urethane.AstroWill said:What size steel did they use on those hangers from Journey's Offroad, possible to get dimensions from the front hanger?
Everything(basically) in their kits can be had as off the shelf parts except for the front hanger for the rear leaf springs on the higher lift kits. Want to save $140? It's a LOT cheaper to piece your own together.castlerox said:NICE Kit right in my local state… wish I knew! looks nice.
You mean the formed in/welded in things up in the van pan that the above pictured hangers bolt into? Those would be "just a little larger" in dimension L to R than the hangers. The hangers touch the mounts only on the sides. Front to back and top isn't critical.AstroWill said:I was wondering what the steel bracket dimensions were.
Of course.daddywalt said:...What about for the 4 inch lift? Can you still get everything off the shelf for that lift?
Don't feel guilty, the lift has been around from LONG before Journey's offroad.daddywalt said:I feel guilty looking at a kit package and buying all the parts separately.
I agree, I have their kit and am satisfied with it. I feel price is fair. If a person wants you can always build your own ANYTHING for less if you have the time and skill.dryhumor said:I haven't had a single problem with anything from Jouney's. The shackles and hangars have been on for a year with no issues. I wouldn't compare them to the crap at O'Reilly's. It's way better. I broke my traction bars and the hangars weren't even phased.
It's always good to have options and everyone can go the route they so choose.Jeepster09 said:I agree, I have their kit and am satisfied with it. I feel price is fair. If a person wants you can always build your own ANYTHING for less if you have the time and skill.
Why can't I see any of the attachments because this is exactly what I'm going to be doing and I want to see.Installed a 3" lift kit from Journeys Off Road. Journeys Off Road Only took about 3.5 hours. I didn't take many pictures, wanted to get it done so I could enjoy the rest of the weekend. Bought 4 Goodyear Wranglers 235/75 r15. I don't have to trim the any of the bumper or wheel well area at all. I have read a lot of people having vibration from pinion angles, my van actually rides a lot smoother now than before. Here are some before and after photos.
