All I can say is there was a change. I spray painted the frame rails, ground off the old rivits. I welded a 1.5inch 90degree piece of angle ontop of the frame rails. It fit below the bed perfectly.
I moved the leaf carriers/holders up exactly 1 inch..
I have vibration now after 45mph and the truck is having shims done and the driveshaft balance checked. It wasn't ' severe ' , didn't make any thumps, but it changed almost 3 degrees.
*IF* I had stock size wheels/tires, I might have been able to get away with this, but with my smaller tires, present leafs and now relocating.. one thing added to another and press-tola, vibration.
Tomorrow I'm moving the shock locations up some so I don't start overcompressing shocks as well.
I'm starting to get good with this mig welder since helping with Joe's springs. Its amazing what you can learn when someone shows you the basics and having prior knowledge of what fouls
Anyone still sell rattle-cans of sonic blue paint?
