    My pleasure to help out, and it will be even more of a pleasure to own one of your systems for myself, hopefully in the near future. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It looks like the logo got a little bit FUBAR, I'll PM you about it... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    *edit*

    I had to upload the logo in it's proper form, the messed up one is buggin me. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Marv decided to pass the torch on to us, so we will be using the same drawings/design.

    Ok we are going to keep Marv's pricing on this kit. Which is:

    Complete Kit - $533.00 plus S&H
    Partial kit - $373.00 plus S&H

    With the partial kit you will need to find and modify F-150 springs. Instruction would be provided. By going with this route you may be able to find springs cheaper and shipping would be considerably less. The modifying involved is adding a leaf to the spring pack which can be made out of a leaf from your existing spring pack that too saves a little money.

    To some it up it's basically 24" of bolt on droop /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I will try to get some pictures up later on today. Also feel free to PM Marv Springer about this since it is his design. Marv if your reading this feel free to share your wisdom.

    Normal

    Extended
    A picture is worth a thousand words. See in the bottom pic how the bracket drops down. In the top pic it shows its normal position.
