if you use fox air shocks ( nitorgen n20) then 2.0's are good in the front but not enough for the rear! need 2.5's for the rear.

if your spreading the frame then take the top main tubes to the nose and then you won't need the top 2 i drew.

here's a few that username big dave never posted lol i'm posting them in reference to the flat nose and shock hoop.












Looks like some facebook stocking going on.  :m LMAO

as funny as that is! no ...you text me those pics way back. that is the only pics i got from you and guessing they were taken with a cell. lol but hey i'm good with FB stocker  rofl rofl

Yesterday we spent a few hours at Jerry's house getting the front end ready to put on.  Jerry, Glenn, and Dan are the brains as well as the skill in this project.

A mill too.  It's the one with a cover over it.  Found them in some guys driveway and made a good deal.  Had some rust we had to deal with and the lathe is all  miteric but we can deal with that.  Use them quite a bit. 

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

We made a lot of progress today.  Having a couple metal-masters really helps out.

Are you talking about where the shock hoop is sitting on the top horizontal bar (in line with the vertical bar) or where the shock is in relation to the hoop?  I am trying to understand what the suggestion is.

where the shock hoop intersects or mounts on top of the new upright tube. i say this as the shock pushes up on the hoop it will pull on the upper frame so attached at this point you have a tube welded to the lower frame supporting the end of the shock hoop.
