    Jays68yak did this mount. 2" drop consructed of 3/16 and 1/4" I plan on making a set too to correct for camber issues with the 52" swap and longer shackles.

    Camber issues? You're axle bent? Or did you mean Caster?

    Haha, shweet...is it a problem of lack of wheel return/wandering or is it too quick return/quick response?

    Yeah it is the same as moving the L bracket in front of the body mount to do the 52" swap.



    I haven't done it yet. i have heard people say with the 7.25 shackles that the pinion angle is less than optimal. I figured this is a better fix than shims
