    The cage looks very similar to mine. Mine was custom built though. I hate the two rear bars that go through the "bed" area.

    Whats wrong with the shackle angle, go look at any k5 with lift springs and ORD hd shackles and the angle is the same. When compresed it move towards the b ack just fine. And yes the propane will be setup on the diesel soon just have to get everything else done.:confused:

    With your shackle at that angle your droop is restricted. That's what he is trying to tell you. :D

    My front shackle is the same, even have the ORD's. I like it though since I'm still using a stock CV (ground down the stops though) and if I drooped any more than I do now it would bind and break into tiny little pieces. I currently have 6" of front lift and am adding a 1" zero rate and moving it 1.5" foreward. Hopefully moving the diff foreward will help the angle a little. :confused:

    I'd rather be safe than sorry. I'm pushing 44's and about to add another inch of lift which would bring me to 7"-7.5" total. With my 4" lift I would have made it droop more but not with this combo. At least not until I get a better CV and a longer slip.
