True, the space gained is great. the only reason I will keep mine is for ease of engine work, and space for moving things around.

The guy that did the welding on Cory's rig was VERY thankfull the BL was still on there. He wouldn't have gotten good welds on the top of the radius arm brackets.

if the links are adjusted and everything is square it should drive just fine... he needs to get it aligned and get the tires balanced as well as a few other things before its really road ready in my opinion but hey its his truck! like for a start it needs rear brakes in a bad way that thing is gonna stop like *** with just fronts

lol that is what i told him. rear brakes are a must.

Cory post your brake situation, maybe i can find you a rotor that is already 6 lug.


btw you should get this for balancing. you need 12 ounces per tire
