    And shackle................Found this last weekend at the race. The truck in question is an old Walker Evans' Class 8 Straight Axle (hell ya!!!) Dodge beast. Talked to the owner for awhile and it wasn't about the race since the poor guy DNF before Lap 1 was over due to a split radiator. Anyway, he rebuilt the back end of the truck and these spring mounts and shackle caught my eye.......No booty fab here.......

    Yup. Don't have them uploaded yet.......

    And yes, the whole thing was spring under. The rear pack is Deaver, the owner said somewhere in the neighborhood of 19" of wheel travel. I'll have pics of the truck up tomorrow nite hopefully, though the action isn't all that good.
