just picked up my parts from powdercoating. look pretty damn good. ill post picture up tomorrow sometime.

depending on how long i work on the truck tomorrow i should have the front back on and start on the rear with the drop shackle hangers which should level it out some.

alignment saturday and putting on a different muffler sunday

truck sits just about level now, about 1-2" lower in the rear instead of about 4" ha.
after i got it back together and took it for a test drive... ABS took a **** so that pissed me off and put me even more in debt with the damn truck ha.

my ABS still doesn't work since the spindle lift install. the front sensors aren't tight enough to the spindle; the abs light turns on the dash after 10-15 mph when they start to shake. maybe thats the problem with yours? (i dont really know what im talking about.) haha

i didnt want to trim the bumper any for tire clearance at the time. and i told myself im going to build a bumper for it soon... buuttt that never happened hah and since i leave for the navy in june i may just stick the stock one on there and trim it up a bit so my dad doesnt have to worry about hitting something with the radiator
