    Agreed, and don’t you have the motor and trans out of the truck? I’m thinking When it all settles the axle will have to be Re-centered again no?

    Lash, you swap axles like I change socks! Must be the attraction for the transverse spring axles you have!

    That looks hot. When the motor sets it down slightly it will be even hotter.

    Thanks guys...but to be honest I am not in love with the way I did it...I should have made the scoop bubble sit level and not slopped following the hood line, plus I should have done the same with the paint top line on the bubble

    Almost pulled the trigger

    on lowering the truck down on the frame by cutting the lift spacers...down to 1" from 3"'s so I spent some time making a list of every thing that I would have to do to achieve this...well the list was long remake bumper brackets front and rear, pull filler neck from tank and shorten it, remove the seats, pull up sill plates and kick panels to remove carpet, lift cab and bed to replace body puck spacers,,but the deal breaker was to have to pull the bed all
    the way off so I can flip the leaf spring hangers back over in the back,they would hit the bottom of the bed if not flipped back..it is to damn cold out to do that one...then after really looking at it I realized that it appears much higher in pics due to the fact it is sitting on an uphill grade when in my drive way...so I think I am going to lift the back up by going one hole down on my rear shackles...and see how that looks...it is getting short on pictures here so here are some
