    I know you are running stock rear springs and a flip kit. My ? is about your 1 inch lift block and rear Driveshaft. I believe I read on another post you have an offset pin location on your block. If this is true what offset are you running and are you running the stock rear shaft with a conversion joint? Also with the offset what did you do on the upper mounting plates to make it work with the offset? Also how much did you drop the t-case? As I have told you before my 89 will be set up almost the same as the UAV so any info you can provide outside of what is in the write up about it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance Steve.

    Right now my offset is 1-3/4", but it is a little to much, an 1-1/4" would be perfect. I "curently" am running the stock driveshaft with the conversion u-joint. The upper spring plate will need to have a hole drilled in it to allow the center pin to come through. The tcase is dropped 1-1/2" right now. The off-set leaves will be my next product review.
