A pain. Had to cut old brackets off and ran out of oxy in the torch so used a grinder. Had to make rear brackets and weld them on it sucked

You guy make me want to SAS so bad lol, but I need to wait for a while after college. I also need a d44 bc I want to run 35s-40 inch tires..
The biggest problem I have with SAS is my truck drives so straight and I don't want to change that
