Your looking off the tie rod mounting locations, did you actually check off the upper and lower ball joints? Maybe the kknuckles are slightly different but the actual location of the ball joints is the same...ie caster is actually the same in both sides.

No, you can see the c is twisted, it is obvious looking down on the balljoints.

The tierod mount just shows it by picture.

Drivers side, 5* back



Passenger side, 5* forward



Kinda hard to tell by pictures, but the passenger side is clearly rotated forward.

Typical dodge stuff, they have looser tolerances than others...

Got the axle twisted back, then I cleaned it up, pre heated it and welded the tubes to the housing. I left it at work under a welding blanket to cool.

Time to get materials to build a truss.

The cut lines are marks I put in it before I twisted it back...moved a long way

Had a good morning, got the rear shackle area built. The angle is a little steeper than I wanted, but I think it will be fine. Used a set of bushings, thanks thrill20, and some dom and boxed in the rear frame section.



Then I got a good start on the truss, I think I like the way this is going

Got a little more work done on the truss

Added a couple gussets on the inside



Then started plating the top



It's all made of 3/16. Think I am going to add a couple drains in the back. Think I should hole saw a few holes in it, maybe sleeve them for strength?
