Hey guys, just updating the surf situation.
The trail gear springs have settled in typical trail gear fashion.
I will try and move them left to right, but I think they are pretty much garbage.
The truck works great, but just has this ghetto lean.
I have thoroughly abused the truck, and it has performed flawlessly so far.
A selectable front locker would have been a nice touch, but I rarely have to stop and back up to make a turn, so I am fairly happy with the whole set up.
The longfields are amazing. Best addition by far.

Now that I have a real garage (2 actually) I plan on buying a welder and some other toys and get to work on this thing. I still need a rear tire carrier, and a full interior cage is on the list.














This rear shackle seems to lean to the side. Not sure if its because of the sag on the opposite side, or if the creeper joint has something to do with it.






On another note, I have removed the carpet and interior panels to spray in some boxliner.

Yah, I have the creeper joints in the rear.
It looks like both "driver side" springs are sagged out, front and rear.
I've read that lots of guys have trouble with the trail gear springs settling un-evenly.

I will either try and swap them around and change the packs up with some stock leafs, or I am considering changing the set up to marlin springs.

No heat in the garage is the biggest stopper right now.

do have any rubbing problems? id take them apart and make some custom packs and low the truck a bit.

make sure ur bump stops stop the springs for over flexing as well. i have always felt the bumps stops were inadequate with the lift kits...

I rub pretty hard on the drivers rear side at full flex.
It sits a little low in the back end, in these pics the fuel tank is 1/4 full, and no interior, rear seats, spare tire, etc..
Not so bad on the other rear side.
I can move the rear axle back one more hole.

The front works great, lots of room, no scrubbing, just sags on the drivers side.
It easily hits the bump stops in the front end over small bumps in the road.

I can probably lose an inch or more on the passenger side front with no negative consequences.

If I trim the rear fenders, move the axle back one hole, and get another half inch or so of lift on the drivers rear, it would be a start.

If I can get it an inch or so lower, I can kick the girlfriend out of the little garage because it wont fit through the door right now. Smile
