Hey guys I just updated my journal so new pics are in there. DD I did some more measuring and found the new rearend to be within 1" of the original and the spring perches are within 1/2". I am wondering if I can use the spring perches were they are? I might have to fab a wider plate for them to sit on and weld it on the existing perch. This would keep me from having to cut the old ones off and weld a new on on. Hey all you guys let me know what you think of this idea.

I removed the bed and the cab today. I power washed the frame and the cab. I really got into the cab plenum to get rid of all the dirt and stuff there.
I found rust in the rear corners, which I expected. I also will have to straighten the "step" at the drivers side door. It is bent down a bit.

Kim...looks like your doing a great job on that truck..
