that is quite the set up. how much higer is it from stock? what is the length of the truck axle from eye to eye?Yes you can. Not hard at all. Did mine that way. I didn't use a "kit" like most others do, though. Sourced parts myself, after doing some homework and some measuring. Used a '59 Chevy truck axle with CJ5 6" lift springs. On the frame, I used new CJ spring eye mounts at one end and '56/'57 car rear shackles w/fab'd shackle mounts at the other. Steering is easy to set up too, and there's a good thread on that here on this site.
