    Nice. I haven't started on mine yet. I'm going to have a new workshop in my back yard in a few weeks and I will start tearing it apart.

    still working on it, I got the front put on perfectly, but I have had some problems with the rear. I got the rear leafs mounted up tonight, and i just need to put the ubolts on the axles and it will be finished. Hard to find time with work and school all the time but I hope to have it together tomorrow

    No, I also got their shocks. But I did do Leafs front and rear, no blocks or AAL

    you do not have to, i would suggest changing the brake lines though, they are pretty tight when you flex
