    Here is my small pic whore. Hope you enjoy.



    These were taken when I still had a crappy shackle angle in the rear (20 degrees) and with the 4" TC springs up front. I have since fixed the shackle angle (55* to 65*) and am in the process of 57's up front tell me what you think.

    Looks like you need longer rear shackles.

    Is the rear wheel so far back because you lengthened the wheel base?

    Thanks MArk. I am glad that the TBI stuff worked out for you. I hated it but am missing it on hill climbs. They are 63's mounted as far back as the rear mount will go. I havent touched the front hanger. I need longer shackles. I am thinking about 2" longer than the stock 88-98 shackles. The rear shock mounts are done and the fronts will bhe done tonight when I finish the spring swap. (57's up front)

    The tank is now mounted on top of the frame and havent figured out what to do with the fuel fill (I will probably do like k5 newbie)

    I will post update pics this weekend after the swap.
