Thanks for the comments.

As I said in the earlier post, new rear leaf springs.. 63" chevies from a Ttora member.



I ordered creeper joints from trail gear.



And front brackets from Ballistic fab. Bracket needed to be moved forward 7" in order to accomodate the longer springs.



Some good looking welds from my brother.





It was time for a new rear bumper as well, something that would actually be strong. 3x6" square tubeing .120wall.

Uber simple design..

Maybe a burr rubbing on it causing it to tear?

Possibly. Will get it into my friend's shop soon hopefully. It's their slow time of the year, so I'll have them do it. And I'll have them deal with my leak between my tranny and tcase.
