    Dang Scott! Ya beat me to it :D

    Yes, this is the new look of our shackles. Sometimes is nice to put a fresh spin on an old part.

    I haven't posted up about them in the Vendor section yet as we are still working with our laser cutter (and the rest of our suppliers where possible) for new pricing. They definitely won't cost any more, but as always, we are trying to get them cheaper.

    Wait till you see our disc brake brackets. They'll cut you if you aren't careful :D

    Either way, folks will have a chance to win a complete set of w/ hardware soon in an upcoming giveaway. Prolly gonna give away a set of brackets/hardware too.

    Hey this goes out to MrK5 or any one else that knows the answer. in one of the pictures of the front end of your truck there is a yellow piece of metal that seems to be moving your leafsprings closer to the front. I was just wondering if anyone knows what those are. I dont know if its a stock part or not, the yellow paint is telling me it isnt.

    I fabbed up a crossmember and new front spring hangers when I swapped in the 52s in the front. The actual hangers are a piece from Ruffstuff that I welded to my crossmember.

    Is that what you're asking about?

    I did some more recent testing. Updated pics here: http://coloradok5.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1873454&postcount=100

    I still think it has more, but that was as far as I can go on that dirt hill.

    Hey mrk5, what are the yellow parts in the very front of your car for? Under the headlights in the last picture of your last post?

    Looking good Scott. The paintwork sets them off too. No problems with fumes in the cab with that exhaust?

    (no not 'Fumes and his goat...exhaust fumes!)
