solution:
grab the OME relocate bracket, chop it, or route it like this
Where's all the rust?

I am trying to remember what the hell we did...

But damn that is not good..

These are the best pics I have.

The tab on top of the headlight assembly is what came off the adjuster screw. It's never happened before and I did just have my friend's shop change my valve covers. But have no idea why the headlight would get knocked off the screw because of it.



You can see the tab sitting in the notch on the adjuster screw here:



This is the passenger side, but you get the idea

No... the tab on top of the headlight mounting bracket dislodged itself from that notch on the adjuster screw.

Yeah, I'll wait until after the lift is on and the headlights are properly adjusted.

Which sounds like it might not be happening for awhile.

I could try to schedule a mod day at my house and have some peeps come over. I'd feed them my famous ribs, shower them with beer, give them bro hugs and do my Buffalo Bill dance for them.

But I don't think I'd get any takers.

Sean, don't worry about your shackles. They'll definitely settle down. Here's a picture of mine right after I put the springs on with the same shackles. Yours are slightly more vertical than mine but that's because of the extra leaf. I didn't have the extra leaf at first. Cutting the tailpipe is a god idea. I ran the exhaust bracket for a while but it just kept getting in the way. Cutting was a simple solution and you never have to worry about it again.

And don't listen to mark, He's still chasing flex on his truck and my truck does just as good if not better than his with his garbage Chevy springs.
