    I just recently finsihed swapping in 3/4 ton axles and changing the rear leaves to stock with a cut through the hanger shackle flip.

    Here are the <a target="_blank" href=http://www.geocities.com/trcksr4me/flextest.htm>PICS</a>

    Found out I need longer shocks and brake lines, and front bump stops. I thought the truck did pretty well. 4" suspension lift with Rancho springs in front.

    you mean no improvement in flex from a tach, /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif. Damn, and I already sent the money. I was suprised I flexed as much as I did, haven't done that many mods. I think the shackle flip and losing the sway bar were the best things I did.
