So is that the steering link rod going over top of the leaf spring...? and the drag link going under...?

That seems like it could be a problem with flex.

Nice build by the way.

Well that was a complex modification. Lotsa details to consider.

oh enough of that crap... how the hell could you have overlooked something like that?

nope, drag link on top of leafs, tie rod underneath. tie rod flex's with axle so no issue there, and i measured everything out on the drag link and that wont hit the leafs under full articulation. so its all good

I've been wanting to ask this question since you started your build thread... What the hell does SAS mean? and is it like S. A. S. or is it like a full word? haha. But anyway, the truck looks good. I like it. I'd put the valance back on if you can. but it's still a pretty tits truck man.

I'm pretty sure with the shackles in the back, it'll have better ride quality.

Think about going over a bump, the axle can travel backwards and over. Otherwise it would have to go forward and over. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure it's right lol
