I have an 02 sport 2wd and a tiny budget. I also have a lot of time and some resources. I hope to do most of the work in my driveway... any advice would be great. I'm about ready to start buying parts. I have pictures of it but they're on my phone and I'm lazy. basically has no front suspension and minor hinge pillar damage. I will probably use as many junkyard parts as possible.

Tiny budget ........I wouldn't even try it if you have a limited amount of money ,would need lots of resources to start, IMO.
Of course a tiny budget to me is under 1000. Yours maybe $24,987.00 :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Need and Necessity can take you a long way. The salvage yards are full of stuff, choose your parts wisely… There is tons of info on this site ask the master tjkj has the best info on parts….

Read a lot! I think it could be done for around 5-7 thousand dollars if you have the resources and reading this forum for a few years. [SMILING FACE WITH OPEN MOUTH AND TIGHTLY-CLOSED EYES] what I'm hoping for at least. Unless I go the mt ifs that I'm dreaming of.

My budget is what ever I have in my bank account lol. I just bought axles to get the build going I have a d44hp and a Ford 9" from a 78 ranger. Advice would be great. I'm now looking for coil overs. I'm thinking 2.0 x 14" fox emulsion but I saw how cheap FOA are and I'm intrigued. Any ideas?

I don't want to spend a grand on a prefab 4link kit. But it gives me a general idea. Questions:
1- Does anyone have 3x8 and/or 3x6 tabular steel laying around?
2- Anyone have a cheaper way to get DOM other that paying outrageous shipping?
3- should I use rod ends, ballistic's bushings, or regular bushings for the link ends?

Hey, Kav's a cool dude in my book. I like where he is going and he's thinking outside of the box here. That's a good thing........ It's that group he mentioned :banghead:. :dizzy:

I only hope, for the love of god, that he's not actually taking ANY build/mechanic help from anyone over there on his project. A few good guys there might steer him in the right direction but 99% of them have no clue what they are doing and are the ones that usually get listened too.
