Default My Slow Armada Build -- Juiced on 26's -- HYDROHOLICS Style

I made a little progress on my Armada over the weekend. It will lay rear frame and front crossmember when it's complete. The Armada running boards will be replaced with QX56 running boards since they don't hang down as low. It took some time, but I was able to keep everything pretty low, only having to raise the floor an inch. Rear end has been swapped out to an 04 Chevy soild axle and will ride on a cantilever hydraulic/coilover setup. I still need to fabricate the watts link and pivot for the coilver, but it's finally coming together. Here are a few pics...I'm working my butt off to get this thing done by WCN....I just work really slow.












By creating a template of my frame I was able to mock up a working model of my suspension to achieve only 1/4" variance from center with a 16" upper bar and 30" lower bar (keeping it under my floor).
