    no the jack stands were set as high as they go and it fit real easy with the 10 bolt but now the jack wont slide under with the 14bb, the shakle flip and zero rat dropped the axel a littl bit and the new springs flex more alowing the axel to drop more

    time to buy a high lift j/k. Just borrow a small car jack
    to get it high enough for your jack. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
