    Hey!
    I just finished lifting my '75 K-10 4" front (spring) & 4" rear (block) to make room for those knarly 31" Mud Stags /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
    My problem lies in the fact the rear cables @ the wheel are too short when flexing. I've already flipped them to below the leaf spring & they work until I flex the rear (like today @ the local pit), so what are my options? Thanks!
    Doc

    There was a recent post about this, somebody found cables that might work. I just had new ones made, for $35 each.

    Control Cables They basically made 'em with a 24 hour turnaround and did a very nice job. If you use them, tell them you're part of CK5 so they get to know who we are. Maybe they'll advertise with Steve.
