PostSubject: "leveled" my truck   January 3rd 2012, 12:26

Well i finally got off my ass and installed some drop Shackles and removed the 1" lift block.
Got the shackles from vatozone awhile back and decided to install them.
It took me about 2 1/2 hours by myself.

I had my overload springs clamped prior and removed them because they caused uneven gaps in the back.

Both rear fender lips are 35.5" rear and 36" up front. Can't really tell, but i put a tape on them and know the fronts higher so i'll lower the front an inch or two.





So far ride is nice, and no pinion angle issues.

I'm going to post these pics on HPT and see if anyone can tell the back is lower than the front lol.

Thanks. I'm searching for either some drop struts or coil spring relocators to bring the front down 1" or two.

thats what the front drop struts are. I think Belltech has them for about 1bill each. Not sure what i want to do yet.
Id hate to get them and it mess up the ride quality.

I think the tires/struts play alot with ride quality. You plan on sticking to the 17s?

Nope, but if you can find some cheap it would help out alot! Sucks having to tighten those 8 bolts the extra 1"+ from where the block used to sit. Other than that very straight forward.
