    So my lift is done but the front sits about 3/4 of an inch lower. I have a ord shackle flip in the rear with the axle moved back one inch with a zero rate. The front is a 4 inch tough country with the axle moved foward one inch with a zero rate. So I was thinking of a 1 inch longer shackle in the front what do you guys think?? Also bryan where are you getting your drivelines extended, with the front fully extended it is still about 2 inches away from the yolk. Landis cant do them so I am planning on going to reno.

    If all you are is 3/4" lower in the front I would let it be. Once you load it with all your gear and tools it will level out. Mine sat level after the lift but loaded it sags just a tad so I am going to add a zero rate to the back. I will then have 2 more inches in the rear then I do in the front. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    Fill your gas tank..... that should help. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif


    Seriously, it looks pretty good in the pics. I would drive it for a week or two before making any more changes. Things may settle out slightly.

    You are right I forgot my gas tank is empty and the gear will probably drop it./forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif But this one will only have a spare and clothes because it will be my little ladys rig once I finish (or so she thinks) . Man now I feel dumb /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
