My new leaf spring bracket.

So the forth one finally rusted out. And instead of paying 60 bucks for one front leaf bracket like last time, I decided to just make one. Computer work and cutting it took about an hour, adjusting it and welding it took about an hour as well.

It worked out good, the top two wholes lined up fine, the bottom to had to be drilled out a bit, nothing major. The truck is almost perfectly level still, Within a half inch.

My brand new cheap tsc grinder gave out in a minute of being used, after being replaced once already. So I still had to buy a grinder. but better than buying both the grinder and the bracket i guess.
