    im still on the fence on this one, especially considering i dont have bushings for either set of springs yet, nor do i have a front clip on my rig. if i run 52s, it will move my axle forward, i understand that. how do you mount your shocks from there? i have a set of Ford towers, but it seems that the steering shaft would be in the way. any ideas on how to get around this? also, those of you who have done it, did you move your shackle mounts? i know KidJethro did, and he's having problems with the springs hitting the frame. if i left them in the stock position (moving the front hanger of course) would i be able to keep myself from running into this problem? any help or advice is greatly appreciated. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    please please please do a search, i know i have answered this question, and so have others. I run the stock lengrh shackle with the shackle in the stock location and DO NOT have any problems. i have answered the shock question too, and there is no reason why ford towers wont work in the normal location running a long ass shokc with the travel needed for these springs.
