    no motor or trans? Me thinks you will be sitting rear high. even if you put a rear radiator and fuel cell your puting more weight on the front end. I could be wrong, the rear springs could be really soft(63s I'm sure they are soft even if lift springs)

    hard to tell? the front tires are 28" tall rear are 32" so that makes the nose drop some. i plan on using a zero rate up front so that will help a bit. i will be running a 22 gal. fuel cell and optimas in the rear, also a tube framework to protect them but that in no way will counterbalance engine. also front will be narrowed and just skinned fenders so that will help! the rears are 5" lift but they flex a bunch!:D

    i moved the front hanger on the rear springs forward 22 inches with the longer springs that nets me 116" the 52's moved the axle forward 2" so i am up to 118" i have 2 sets of zero rates so i was gonna move the front axle forward. so that would be 119-1/2" i don't need more lift in the rear but if i were to use a zero rate in the back that would get me 121" but i think i may just leave the rear be and push the front forward the 1-1/2" and stay with the 118" cloae to the stock shortbed length :D
