After thinking it over I made my front hangers for the chevys out of square tubing. I placed the hangers ~7-2/1" forward.


Moved the rear shackle mount 1-1/2" to the rear due to the stock shackles hitting the aftermarket hitch mount that I cut for shackle clearance for my OEM leafs. Now the shackle angle is better and the springs can fully compress. I have yet to get longer shocks but will update when I do.

I moved my stock E-brake cable down to follow the springs. In the stock location, the cable would hinder full droop.


Short shocks at almost full droop.



Sitting next to a stock GMC Canyon.


Sitting on levelish ground.


Location of the tire at stuff.

I like what you did with the e-brake cable, I've been running into that problem...

Ah... its sucks adapters are so pricey for us to use the older pick-up t-cases.....

And NICE. That's a score with the hp 44... Are you going to go bigger even with the work you've already put into the waggy axle?

Not any time soon, it'll all depend on what/if I break stuff on the waggy so I'll be putting the waggy in with leafs for now and see how I like it.


Edit: I foresee an ARB and maybe RCV shafts.

I got bored so I started to get the front bumper ready for the swap. I wanted a bumper with a front receiver so I created one adding to my existing one. I chopped the mounts off of my plating and reworked the winch mounting pushing everything about 2" forward(no pics of the process). I took off my XRC8 to mount it in the rear bumper (whenever I get to making one) and replaced to with a Ramsey Profile 9500. I wanted to have an in-cab winch controller... So I made one.

Switch is to "arm" the system and is Ignition hot
Red button is "in" and black is "out". Just like the Ramsey winch controller.

Was pretty simple really.

Installed the billies and now I need to re-relocate my shackle hanger so I can get the most droop.

Up travel is good. Went and flexed the rear and the tires still had room to move. Still need to get pics but I need to wait until it stops snowing and the weather clears up a bit.


Sorry for the crappy cell pics.

Thanks. I was going to redo mine kinda like how yours is, but decided against it because the wheels go up as far as it did before when I flexed it up. Now I need to do what we were talking about with my rear shackle hangers for more droop. I'm happy with how it is, I'm not going to be jumping my truck.

4"?!! You mean 4" of up-travel? That's not bad..

But have you seen how close the shocks get to bottoming out when your on the bumpstops? That's what I want to know..
