This is noelsmykuya's truck. (on CT) I did the fully boxed weld in c- notch, the rear drop blocks with offset pins, and will be doing the front DJM arms tomorrow. He has the 4x4 leafs already in there. Plans are to go with the Sittin Sic drop coils a little later, (and possibly those spacers) as well as some 20" wheels.
This wasn't just a slap n go project, I really spent some time getting the rear of this truck dialed in just right as far as the drive shaft goes and also the 3rd member and the stuff above it that it comes sooo close to at full compression.
I made custom blocks that have the leaf pin set back 3/4" to keep the drive shaft from pushing into the trans too far and putting stress on the rubber carrier bearing. I also flipped the carrier bearing since the angle of both shafts were pretty bad. This things drives like a Caddy on glass, even at 80mph on the freeway.
I'll have finished pics up after tomorrow.
