I'm trashing everything up front no more coil springs. I'll sell the leveling kit
The ttb axle is coming out and the dana 30 and the leaf springs are going in. I'll have to make it sit how I want with the leaf springs and shackles

Got my axle in the shop today gonna start making my soa perches along with my ubolt eliminator plates. That should leave me with only having to make about 2 inch shackle and the Chevy shackles in the back. All my brackets are going to be made with 1/4 inch steel with plenty of gussets for strength.

Can't wait to get started wish I has time on my side

Worked on my axle tonight I am doing a spring over axle as well as a ubolt eliminator which basically uses grade 8 bolts and sandwiches the leaf between two 1/4 inch steel plates. I have them mocked up and welded in here now an stopped prior to making the top plates. All the perches I am using is 1/4 inch plate and tubing which I used for my perches.

They rub the front bumper pretty bad I'll probably pull it off till I get the axle in. They don't hit anything else thankfully
