    I've got some drawings I think. I don't have any pics yet but I'll look into getting some. It wasn't too bad to do. Sawzall and a grinder helped. 55Willy may be able to help you out with info to. He welded the new spring hangers on and helped me take the old ones off. Send me a PM with your e-mail address and I'll send off whatever pics/drawings I can find /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Not yet. I think I'll be able to get a few shots later this week. I had 1 but it turned out to dark to see anything. My job ends in two weeks so I'm not in a hurry to spend money on film and developing until I get something else lined up /forums/images/icons/smile.gif I'll see if I can get a few pics from a friends camera though..

    ok thank's for replying
    now that is all you did?? you don't have to do anything with the back of the spring??? now i have to see if this is going to be a legal problem. we have some screwy law's here. it's one thing to be to high but welding in part's could just get me impounded or parked for good.
    if it look's like i can do this, does anyone want to fab me one up?? sound's like to me trustyk5 made them, are you up to the callenge again??? looking at you're profile look's like you are more then qualified. so do you have to do anything with the rear spring hanger's and did you get a true 4"s out of this??? also anything negative about this????
    thank's alot....

    A user, I think metalhead, made extended shackles for me for the front. They're 3.5 or 4 inches longer than stock. For the rear springs I just cut the bottom of the shackle hanger out and dropeed it through. I did get a true 4 inches out of it. I have not wheeled on it yet but I don't anticipate any problems.

    Well it's not much of a challenge to make them...the problem I have is that I don't have a shop to do them in (anymore)

    Quite honestly any fab shop could throw one together in no time using Aaron's drawing.

    i printed the drawings, so if i decide to do this i have them. looking at it again it look's easy enough to build. but i am still a little confused and didn't get any pic's of the BACK of the front spring. how long of a shackel do you have? any pic's.
    also forgot in my last post, THANK YOU 55 willy for the pic's.. ok now if i can get a drawing or pic of the back (front) shackel i will let this post die.
    thank you again

    Sorry I don't have any pics of the extended shackles. If you look at the shackles on the front of your truck they're basically the same as those. The only difference is that mine have 3.5 inches more than yours do between the bolt holes. Mine also have a brace across the middle. If I can find a drawing I'll put it up.
