    About your 52" spring swap...

    Is it really as simple as just moving the front mount forward a bit? How far foward does this move the axle? I know I read how much in one of your posts, but I don't feel like searching again. How did you deal with the different bushing width's? Did you just fab a new front hanger to match the springs? Or did ya modify the stock one? Can you use an offset zero rate to move the exle forward even more? You left the overload right? Hmm...Lots-o questions.. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    And finally....Can ya post some good, close up pictures of your front spring hanger set-up? Pleeeaaase? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I need to deal with this problem-

    OK.... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Most of this got talked about: HERE.

    Some pics are: HERE.

    I love this mod. I also redrilled to move the axle forward again as I didnt want to go any higher on the lift.

    Let me know if you have any more questions. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
