    I bought this about 3months ago and I've never installed it. Includes the mounts for the axle. New the kit was $165 + $20 for the axle mounts. It is for 73-91 K5s.

    Already painted obviously, Catepillar yellow. I even painted the drill pattern pieces before I realized what they are. :doah:

    The only thing not included is the hardware to bolt the bracket together and in the truck. Apparently I used them on something else. :crazy: It would require 14 bolt/nuts/washers that are 3/8" and 1" long bolts.

    I've decided not to use the kit because I moved the axle back 4.5". It's going to be more work to try and make this kit work versus custom fabbing something.

    Price: $130 + shipping ***SOLD***

    They'll still be inboarded, I'm just going to make my own crossmember and mount the shocks to the top of the axle tubes.

    It won't be as pretty as Kert's stuff, but it'll get the job done. Hopefully... :doah:
