more done today, got the final box bolt ground off, and got the box off,
that let me get to the broken leaf spring,,
so it must come off,
off with the u bolts and mounting plate, ,
got it all apart on the passenger side, and laid the James Duff spring in close,
next will be take off the stock spring and get the James Duff springs and shocks on the back,
more in a day or 2 ,,
you broke the main leaf! wow, you really didnt screw around! i so wish i could be there to help on this
yeah i broke the main leaf right off completey, it was a major snap after i landed the 3 foot high jump, guess it didn't like that at all,
link to the facebook photo album with all the things i am doing
...What about pics for those of us who don't facebook?..
i am in the process of doing more, but have run into a snag,
i am in need of a torch to get some of the spring bolts cut off to get the old springs off so i can put on the new lift springs, when i get something going there will be more p;ics,,
anybody can look on this link , don't have to be a facebook member,,
so i did some more on this thing today,
ground of the spring mount rivets,
than fit the one spring in place,
front eye is close,
back eye not so much,
than i went around to do the other side the same,
so far the bumper is this high, should be higher when on the 35's,
guess that oil drum will not be tall enough soon,,
more to come soon, i am going to pick up new spring mounts and bolts for them tomorrow,
Looks like a good start Probably won't sit quite that high since you've got it at full droop right now plus the front end isn't lifted...or it doesn't appear to be.
should see how high it will be with the back done in the next few days.
I think the droop will be picked back up when the tires are on, or the body lift is bolted on.
Hoping i don't have to cut too much for the tires, but i do have some fender flares to go on too,
No the front is not done yet, after the back is done i will turn it around and get the front all apart,
I crashed hard the last couple of days to get this thing going , and got the back all done,
lots of clearance under there,
who is this guy ?
help, i have fallen , and i can't get up,,
long way up,
more to come, stay tuned,,
Crazy Canuak trying to be like steve,
Looking good, did the back end up being as high as you though it would?
it is pretty close, once the body lift is on it will be right where i want it,
what's this ???
Looks like rust:
Look forward to the build sir
Looks like a HEEP axle.
it is a Heep axle, but it's a Dana,, so,,
it should go in easy with this setup,,
So I was just messing with you
How's the truck coming along? -1 year late-
And, half the pics don't work anymore.
