    Well the FErd had no shocks or drive shafts and had to be lifted with a fork lift. It may not has as much flex once those parts get put on. That truck is drivable and had that much flex.

    Acutally I'm worried about steering linkages more than anything... the front shock mounting may take a bit of creativity, but nothing too hard... Driveshafts are easy with the doubler

    So, what shocks will you be running and have you got them and the d-shafts in yet? Will they limit any suspension travel?

    I have 9012s now, they should work on the rear no problem, the front is going to take a little trickery... if we can't get them angled enuff to work, I have another little trick up my sleeve to make them work... unless I find a longer shock really soon...
    Driveshafts are no problem, front is 38", rear is 48", plenty of length, 1350 joints & 16" spline... it'll take the expansion & contraction fine, hoping the joints will work with the angle, if not I'll switch it all over to 1410 (probably should have used that in the first place)
