Neenigan,
what a beautiful set up.
Please let me know if I can every get in on that "light offroading" you mentioned in a previous post :D

Same concept as the bushings. Instead of playing with the bushings trying to get the camber to spec, you instead would move the whole control arm via those welded slots instead. If you ever need to replace control arms, you don't need to worry about buying a new set of bushings with new control arms. Any control arm would work.
Yeah, makes total sense now. Thanks for the explanation. Maybe I should have gone that way. But my bushings are going in today, so I am committed now. I will let you guys know how it turns out.

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, for sure. If you are in the Western NC area, there are some beautiful areas. Old NC 105 gets busy on weekends but it is a beautiful place to see the Linville Gorge and a lot of free camping. The road is an easy pass for 4x4 Pathfinders. In fact, you probably only need 4wd when it rains. Then it can be a mess.

There are also Trans America Trail sections around Linville, Mortimer and Linville Falls areas. Stunning scenery especially at this time of year. I also want to try Hurricane Creek next year and there are many areas in the Pisgah National Forest. Some of them, you are better to go in group depending on how off road crazy you want to go!

Posted this picture in the general picture thread, but figured I would put it here too. The old logging road up to our hand made, private campsite triggered the desire for a mild lift. There is a specific area where there is a natural flow of water across the road that through erosion over time, has created a significant dip in the road. The departure angle without the lift was not sufficient so I would clip the spare tire and the hitch receiver going over that section. There are also sections where the ruts are deep and I would rub the front skid plate at times. The lift solved both problems. Here is the private campsite that we built.
