Hell no Carol! Lul...

I'll post some pics when I get home... you'd be surprised what pinion angle I have right now... Course, its not set and welded yet but its mocked up.

Ty, my buddy used those springs on a sas for a dakota quad cab with the V8, and hasn't had any problems with sagging... and he's on 39.5's... so well see if they settle like you say lol... Is he running the super flex springs or the HD's?

Here's pics I've taken so far... Some pinion shots, some axle placement, some front ride height, and the bracket we made for the frenched frame, of course it's not all complete, but it's a good idea of what you're gonna see when it's done...

I don't think the shift forward has been stressed enough for the members... It serves a purpose. And it's late and I don't feel like explaining...

I didn't do it for ***** and gigs... With a leaf setup, you have to, there's no way around it with leafs.

Yeah... I have a few things I modified to work with the body lift, plus changing the slave out with a body lift is 10x easier and faster...

I know I've explained it twice already in this thread, so have others. It don't need to be repeated.
