    Dizzam /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif! Those hangers are way offset, how long of a spring are you stuffing in there? Everything looks good but I am especially diggin' the rear shackles

    I thought that it didn't hurt to post the pics as long as they were supported by another site (like webshots). Or is the link method the best way to conserve bandwidth?

    Oh, they are way off set to stuff 56" in there, but the main thing is so if I ever want to hack the frame off right behind the hangers. This would give me a little shorter frame than if I used ORD's. All the steel was free from my uncle, and so was the use of his machine shop. So I made them free to me but my time and I learned while doing it (just learned to weld!)

    Thanks for drueling on my rear shackles. Hope I never bend them 3/8" puppies!

    Steve would liike us to link to pics versus displaying them in the post to save on bandwidth.

    There is nothing wrong with embeding pics from a different site, it uses no bandwidth here. The problem is that the other site does not want you using their bandwidth for remote linking (that's what it's called). So, for webshots and many others, it won't work when you try to embed the pic at another site, but links will work. Just use your ISP account and it will work fine without taking any of the CK5 bandwidth...

    BTW, looks great, especially for a new fabricator. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That's because the website where they are hosted does not allow remote linking. Right click on the "X", select "Properties", select the URL that you'll see in the dialog, copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl+C), choose file open in your browser, paste in the URL (Ctrl+V), hit "OK"...

    Thanks Baddog.I didn't get to try it though.He already had it linked.I am not to great with these computers.

    Weisel,Looks great.Watch your pinion angle on the front though.I did a 1" shackle lift on my old blazer and started binding the front u-joint.May need to shim the pinion back up a little,Brady /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Blueblaze,
    sure, let me find my camera and I'll take a pic of the "blue prints" so to speak.

    Baddog,
    how much did you have to shim the front pinion up?

    I said I started binding not Baddog.Anyway,I redrilled them and shortened them so it was only a 1/2" lift.I no problems after that.Also with the longer shackle,I notice the front tires scrubbed alot more.Brady

    my bad brady, college has gotten my speed reading too sloppy. I need to slow down, blazer stuff is important, not like that chemistry stuff. Wonder how much to shim them?

    looks great.
    what I do not under stand is why everyone continues to use the goofy shackle design when they are creating their own hangers.
    seems to me to be the perfect opportunity to make normal shackles.
