Ok so I've had this set-up finished on my truck for about a month, and am just now getting around to taking pics of it. I will get better pics later when the bed is off, but a couple members asked some questions so i thought I'd post and see what kind of response i recieved. It was definetly a Daunting task for myself and my roomate who aren't exactly the Gieser Brothers, but we have some baisic fab :welder: know-how. Tube is all DOM with delrin as the arm bushing and 5/8" hiems for the links. I feel bad posting such rusty stuff, but the undercoating wore off when we went to the dez. The valving was difficult to get even close because its a 1.7:1.0 ratio so they are super stiff, which as most of you know transforms to heat...which is bad. I will be changing some stacks tomorrow night to try and button it up before this weekend. anyhow, any input would be great....things you like...things you don't like, I'd like to hear it all. Also I'd like to say thanks to the guys at True Off-Road for helping me out and pushing me to just sak up and do it. OH! and i almost forgot. I'm posting a pic of my driver side inner fenderwell. Yeah, thats a hole (from the castle nut), and the imprint of the UCA on the inner fender well. My roomate decided to go hit up some SX whoops at MACH 20 when he borrowed my truck....J/K (just Joshing ya AHHH HOTA...thats AJ in espanol)

SOOOO i tried to post the pics but they are like 1.38 MB
heres the link

Last time I talked to scott he didnt think much of it, saying that unlike some other spring companies, they keep really close track of where they get thier steel from, and because of this higher quality steel, fatigue is not such an issue as it is with other springs.
That's very interesting, because from what I've seen from many others' posts, the Deavers can be rather susceptible to fatigue/sagging. I have a used set of their 7-leaf packs that I have yet to install. They were on the previous owner's truck for about 1.5 years and lost quite a bit of their arch (determined via measuring during a phone call with Deaver). In fact, I will have to get them rebuilt/re-arched before installing them. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems that if you're throwing 'em into negative arch often, it would only accelerate the fatiguing.
