    Got it. When you get a chance to flex it out, post up some pictures. I like the angles and the clean install. With my 12" 7100s in the stock locations, I'm worried about binding, just like you. So, I figure, if you're safe, I might be too, after I get my orbit eyes.

    Thanks for the info.

    Will Do, I Figure If It's A Problem Poly Bushings Might Help, Otherwise I'll Have To tweak It. I doubt I'll Have A Chance To Test It For A While, Hurt My back At Work Yesterday.

    I want BAMF to finalize a 3 link rear kit for factory axles retaining the factory gas tank. Keeping leaves is a last resort.

    If thats not an option its time to see what can be accomplished with cantilever shock mounts and longer leafs still over axle.

    BAMF is doing his own SAS 1st gen with opposing three links as we speak. I am hoping he releases a kit for 2nd gen. Not holding breath but hoping.

    Im not doing custom suspension fab till truck is paid off. Stick with mid travel till then.

    Where is the middle going to go? The third link is what I'm talking about.

    Kind of thought so. Just checking. That is a pretty cool setup. Are you going to cut into the bed for the c/o?
