oh ya. its just that i want my steering box farther forward...which would involve movin my radiator around, or cutting of a mounting bracket...

and installing a pillow bearing on the shaft since it has tons of play.

drives fine, but id just prefer the piece of mind and no clunk when turning fast.

ya i did notice in ur pics how far forward ur axle was. but i found a guy thats got a pair of 63" leafs out of a 1/2 ton for 50 bucks. should i go ahead and get these? and those are for the rear right? and did you just use stock ranger hangers and shackles for the rear? did you just weld those on as well?

if you use 63's, you will have to move the front of your rear hanger forward to compensate for the longer length leafs. i also dont remember how much longer these are but either way you will have to move your leaf hangers around to accomidate for them.

ok so its just the hangers i will have to re-locate. what size alcans are u running in the rear? all im doing now is waiting on my gears so i can get my axle re-geared. then the welding starts, then the assembly!
