when i switch to my D44 i will move the mounts out about another inch for some extra space between the frame and the coil.
very well spoken,that is my exact intentions.

Remove the overloads from the chevy springs or they will never go negative on a light ranger. Change your steering to a crossover setup so you don't get bump steer like a ***** (which you will with your current set-up).

What are you welding with btw?

Use a 6011 rod thats plenty for what your doing 7018s are for a heavier duty steel then what your welding on 7018s are good for tractor buckets and Huge i beams.

Ya true, But 6011s are alot easier to weld with and im pretty sure they are cheaper than 7018s not sure on that though as i dont order our inventory lol.

I've never used a 6011 but I would say 98% of the welding I've done is with a 7018. It's the easiest rod I've ever used. I had to use 6010 during college for an assignment and it was a PITA.
