    I'm in the same position, I'm building mine, the torkbox is a problem. I'll be using Calvert monoleaf springs and would like to connect the rear frame rails.

    I'm using the front frame rails going back then with a tie to the rocker panel under the front spring hangers then the rear rails. The debate is weather to put an 8 point in it or not.

    In your case what do you use for a front suspension mount point?

    i see what you are saying about mounting to the frame rails in the front then it has to go over to rocker and end up at rear torque box i guess ill have to cut these parts up just thought i was missing something in the instructions

    I've seen pictures of them and I don't think they are enough, you might want to tie the front of them to the rockers as well.
