    No problem. Mine is coming along well. One thing I would recommend btw is use long trailing arms. Shorter ones will make the truck much more difficult to drive

    Mine are 6" eye to eye. If you go this long you will also be forced to fab your own upper links too. I think cycon makes and sells trailing arms...

    I am sorry but with upper links you mean on the chassis or on the axle

    No, springs/shocks mount to the lower arms. These are the 2 bars that mount to the top of the rear end

    The ones that go to the middle of the rear end.

    The ones that mount to the outer edge of the rear end are called trailing arms

    Thank you. I'm headed out for vacation at the end of this week. When I return I plan to knock it out. Gotta get back onto my full size projects with desert season on the horizon.
