No I have a weak 4" RCD lift. A 2" lift in the rear. I have glass fenders and the bedsides are pulled. I shaved the bump stops also more compression travel.
My wheels dont spin at full drop I need limiting straps. Or I can get my cv joints machined until they dont bind anymore who can do that?
How much is it?
Can I do it with a disc grinder?
Why not spend the $$$ for a 930 cv? I dunno if it would work...but I can't imagine a VW IRS axle being much smaller/ larger than the chevy IFS axles. Machining the CV's themselves for more clearance seems way risky to me...
I would go with a 930 cv conversion but there is no way I can dish out the cash for that right now. I just bought rebuilt ones for $230 by the time there done I will probably do the 930cv conversion. What about machining?
Not knowing the max angle for the stock cheby cv's I really can't tell what the increase would be. What you need is the axle lenght and max operating angles for both cv's to determin the increase. Some 930's have more travel than others depending on the cage and what work has been done it.

How much travel does the RCD kit give you? I know that it can't be much. How much travel could you get out of it if it was converted to 930 or 934 CV's? Just curious, I have a 94 Z-71 that is begging for a long travel system once I get enough money and convince someone to fab it up.
If it doesn't fit, force it; if it breaks, it needed replacement anyway
Not sure how I could measure the amount of front wheel travel I have with the RCD kit. I can measure the rear but if anybody has a good idea how to measure the front tell me. I know its crap for travel but im curious.
With the torsion bars it is hard to make a long travel system you need a coil. I cant afford all that so I have to work with what I got.
Is it ok to mount my limiting straps to a 1/4" (maybe less) steel part of my frame?
Beard and mastercraft that ive seen readily available. I like the beards better because they have this metal thing where the tab and the strap meet. ( iknow that probally makes no sense, but if you can compare the two side by side you will see what i mean)
