14 bolt mocked up, pushed it back about 4", might be too much because the gas tank in in the way, but we will see. I can move it on the centering pin an inch either way.

Made spring hangers



Gotta figure out what to do for shackles too, might sleeve the frame with a bushing, just gotta find some bushings.


Tire showing the stretch


clearance


I also cut the rockers off and did a small comp cut....thinking maybe a boat side...hmmm

just checked the garage, I have a few sets of bushings if you need them, no tube though.











If you think any of them will work, they're yours. There in my truck, you might be able to sweet talk Andy into swinging by and getting them for you. He's not far away.

I have some shackles too, but they're from a toyota so they are like 18mm bolts or something stupid like that. I'll throw those in too.

Like Kyle said I'm not too worried about being involved in this process. He is in charge of performance and I am in charge of appearance. I have nothing put faith in him that he will build me something great........because if its not up to my standards he knows darn well I will make him drive it and take over his truck.
