    Maybe this'll get more exposure thank the ORD section... If I buy 4 of those zero-rate add a leaves, for the sole purpose of using them to relocate the axles, how much work is involved. I'm sure there is quite a bit more work to be done in the front, right? Does anybody know all the steps you must go through? And does the 2-3 inches you gain in wheelbase make any noticable difference to the person behind the wheel?

    K10/15 shortbox will get 5.5" over a K5 without having to go to the trouble.

    spend less, lear more about your truck and re-drill your spring packs.
    front and rear. you can re-drill them up to 1 and 3/8 in ethier direction.

    I'm just gonna get some ORD zero rates since those are in my price range. What I meant to ask was if it was worth it for the 2 inches you'll gain and what else must be modified as far as drive shafts go and such
