I installed some 2" lift blocks and extended shackles to level out the truck. Now I'm going to have to make a new upper shock mount in the rear cause the factory one is too high in the frame so it limits droop.

The drivers rear tire is off the ground.

A couple of weeks ago well running at Bear Swamp is got stuck and when the tractor pulled me out the passager front tire was in a hole. It ending up bending the radius arm.




So I bought a set of radius arm off of frdtrckmnrch. They're 2" DOM and he ran them on his explorer on 38s and the held up.
I had to build some mount for then.

Testing them out with out shocks. I going to mount F250 shock mounts and have to measure for new shocks.

I'm a little behind on my updates.
A couple of weeks ago i got the front suspension finished up for now.
I mounted EB coil buckets and F250 shock mounts.

I had to put some plates under the lower coil mounts to stop them from bending.

Here's the radius arm mount and cross member.

It will just about collapse the spring and no more using the shock as a bump stop- the fender is now.

I have to trim the bumper now.

I also built a rear upper shock mount so that i can put the bed on with out the shocks sticking though the floor.
