Haven't done too much to the truck.....mainly use it, which is what I love doing.

Tuned the rear suspension a little to maximize up travel. Gained about 1"-2" of up travel. Still trying to work out a shackle flip.

I posted my opinions on his thread on TTORA......his design is shhit.....I already have something else in the works. We'll see how that turns out.

It will be a out boarded plate with a TG shackle kit with creeper joints mounted on it...

That's a great pic Larry. It really helps explain why so many think his design won't work. I didn't realize there would be that much side flex, and can see how his design won't allow much of that twist to happen.

The twisting is just the creeper joint.........


His design only alows the use of the stock shackle just flipped around......the thing with that is that aftermarket springs are different lengths than stock. So if you run an aftermarket spring with the stock shackle when the hangers are designed for an ideal shackle angle with the stock leafs then the shackle angle with the aftermarket leafs will not be ideal and it will bind.

The way I'm gonna do it will allow me to run any size shackle I need to obtain the ideal shackle angle and get the most out of the rear suspension.

larry dont do those jointed hangers... I had them on toby and they do some weird things when you side start spinning. the axle hops side to side. I took them off mine and use poly bushings in a TG mount. Much more comforting feeling.

Thanks for the advise.........I already have the kit here. So I'll try it and see. It wouldn't be to hard to swap to the bushings.
