I did it, leafed rear suspension!


And I lost about a 1\4" of flex total, not enough to worry about for sure. Rear tire is off the ground.

looks great man, if the springs are new you might get that flex back after few runs.

Thanks, kinda what I am hoping for. They are not new, but I really don't think they have much use.

One thing that I cant tell for sure in your pic of the naked chassis, is the shackle straight up and down sitting with the weight of the truck on it? On most leaf setups its best to have just a bit of angle to them so they can flex both directions if looking at the truck from driver side the shackle should angle bit like this \ if yours is straight up and down that might gain you tiny bit of flex by just moving you upper bolt hole forward a bit.

Yeah the shackles are vertical. Misjudged the hole by 1\8" I plan on correcting the mounting and installing some 70 mm shocks in the morning. Might have to make some slightly longer shackles to correct my pinion angle.

Decided to do a bit of modifying, took the wood bed off and mocked up the new camper?
