Frame boxing looks good. I'm sure you're planning on doing more to the shackle pivot but just to be safe make sure you do some gusseting that goes over the top of the pivot tube.

Agreed, I have some plate work on mine up both sides, that plus something wrapped all the way over the top should work. How it is now will rip your frame up for sure.

Those leafs set up correctly and valved correctly can out run a shitty link set up in the rough stuff.

Plus a link set up is more time, money, and room for error when your a green fabricator.


*I'm not calling pinky a bad fabricator but he might know enought about Link set ups yet*

Matt Helton is the current 1450 champ and he runs deaver leaf springs in the rear. Of course they are set up and tuned propperly. He beat out many other trucks that were linked in the rear. Obviously high end trophy trucks do have properly set up links not to mention center mounted a amrs and so on, but if properly tuned deaver 62's and a set of bypass shocks can do just as well as a linked truck.

Hopefully mine will be going on next week with a cantilever setup, 18 inches of travel all under the bed with 10 inch shocks.

yes picks needed cause I'm on the fence with either a canti setup or run 12's and limit the travel to about 14 when I go 62's.




Bob your dumb, I was obviously referring to a Toyota or other production truck.

But in the late 80's class 8's where the faster vehicles in the desert and had to run what the truck had stock IE it came with leafs you needed leafs. To get around this guys ran a elliptical spring off the front of the axle kinda as lower links and then ran coilovers and shocks on top of the axle.

Actually a quarter-elliptical setup doesn't use coilovers, the upside-down leafs running off a roller on the axle support the weight of the truck, and bypasses coming off of the axle or trailing arms control the damping. Basically a 3 or 4 link setup but instead of coilovers on the trailing arms they used a large (like 23 or 24 something leafs) leaf pack cut in half and ran upside down. Pretty funky setup, but pretty sweet when setup right.

biggest problem with this set-up was the leafs would always break.

Yeah I understand, I was following the convo perfectly fine. Mike was saying how it was a sweet set-up with the cut leafs (23-24 pack) and you said they break, then I said I've never seen 62" Deavers break which is good news for the way Pinky is set-up

Sweet! he does great work even though some of it is on rock crawlers! Check out his 05 if you get a chance, first one I had seen with 62's in the rear and 2.5's.

My nickname is Pinky, to clear things up. ya ya i know, i need to put up some more pics. We finally got some new lower shock mounts taken care of and got the shackle mounts completely gusseted. I am also gettin a 32 gallon Fuel Safe, in the next couple days. Hopefully we can get to the cage work this weekend and start making it look like a truck again.

My current DD while my truck is in the shop is a piece of shit 98 galant with no air conditioning and the windows wont roll down. It is a total sketchy car. It is so bad that cops trail me all the time. Now that is dedication!

Slow progress but we are starting to get everything together. Being poor and building trucks dont mix! The cage work will start tomarrow and the fuel safe comes in next week. Let me know what you guys think.
