    Mike,

    Don't take offense to what is being communicated, just take the advice.
    its not meant to be a put down, it is to help you get what you paid for and a working fun truck.

    Bias relocation bracket is easy. Made this one... 3.5" lift for my All-Pro Expo leaf pack (estimated 4.5" lift without any load, may make another 1/2" taller).


    Go buy the right shocks and relocate them properly. it will feel even better. IMO limit straps are not needed with a leaf spring rear unless if you're running into driveshaft angle limitations, but that isn't the case here.

    Since I'm such a nice guy... Here is a drawing to work from for a 3.5" lift. Shorten or lengthen the vertical dimensions for your lift height.

    Ignore the lack of dimension standards... I made this for myself.

    AHEM..
    EXCUSE ME...

    Don’t u know that’s incorrect!? To dimension each hole individually from the base????? So the further you go out the greater the effective tolerance limit exists!?!?

    Now please promptly delete your computer

    Greetings everyone... y'all aren't shy... what do you think about cutting off
    one of the muffler hangers and part of the frame?

    I cut off the rear most exhaust hanger (along with the pipe) when I got shackles.

    It was either grab a hacksaw or figure out a way to remount the exhaust so as to not interfere with the leaf.

    But I wouldn't cut into the frame... at least not unless you weld a reinforcement plate to compensate.

    Maybe. Fabricate a bracket that moves the mount over to not interfere.

    I really hope that someone who reads this thread will have, or know someone who has, King 153s on the rear
    of a 1st gen... I'd love to get a picture of the right side oriented like this of other installs...

    [​IMG]

    I've been on the phone with really nice people from King, and email too, they assure me nothing needs to be
    cut to install their shocks.

    Anywho... I talked with the (also nice) folks down at the shop that did the work on my truck today.
    Our plan is for me to bring the truck in on Friday, they'll put everything back to stock, including
    fixing the frame cut and the muffler hangers. When it is back to stock and sitting at full droop
    on their lift, we'll measure from the center of the top mounts to the center of the bottom mounts
    and special order kings that are that length when fully extended. The special order will
    take weeks, so we'll put my old shocks back on so that I can at least drive the truck
    back home... it has some kind of lift on it now, so it might be OK to drive it around as
    normal while I wait on the new shocks to come in.

    Here's the best picture of Kings + Deavers I've found so far:

    [​IMG]

    I reached out to the fellow whose truck is in the above picture through this site's "conversation" feature, and
    he got back with me today... his King shocks were special ordered to be several inches longer...
