The subframe assy. Has the links mounts incorporated into it. The LJ chassis kit and the Ibex kit both use the subframe assembly I am using.

The axle mounts depend on the builder.

Or you can do like Cutler did on his commanche and just build off the subframe https://nc4x4.com/forum/threads/90s-throw-back-manche-build.170413/

Browse goatbuilts website and check out the different options. There are lots of drawings and some pdf's as well.

Mas welding, the rotisserie thing works pretty good for getting to hard to reach spots.

anybody have recommendations on a full overhaul gasket set for the 5.3? I took a look at kits online and Summit sells a lower end for $135, and a upper for $195. damn near fell outa my chair.

Also, who is the best for cam, lifters and springs?
