Well Doug, I hope your health improves. If you weren't so far away I'd offer to help you out. Can you send me a couple of pictures? I'd like to see it

Nice work so far. Got any more pics on that front axle? Pretty sweet. What did you use to weld it with?

The front suspension will be done this afternoon, after i get all the link tabs all burned in. ill post pics tonight. the only thing that i wont have done is the steering, i had to order a vega style box and convert to cross over steering. too much work trying to keep the stock steering set up.
As for air management, the only thing i have now are switches and bags, stuff i had laying around the shop from swap meet scores and old projects.

okay guys! i have the front suspension all in and air to it. I wanted to do a cantilever setup like i did in the rear but lifting all the weight of the truck from the front of the frame rails would have given me lots of frame flex and twist. so i went with a traditional bag over axle setup but i still kept the spider theme on the links and gussets. I'm not completely finished with the frame, i need to add a cross-member under the engine and add misc. brackets

I would definatly find some of the old roll plates that they are suposed to have on top and bottom. They might work for a while but airlift definatly switched to the newer bag for a reason. I worked for one of Airlifts biggest distributors for 7 years before coming to Ridetech.
