that almost sounds fun!

thanks for the info guys!

yes i will be mounting the steering box behind the axle, with a drag link to the steering arm on the spindle, so my shackles must be foward of the leafspring.

this brings up another question, when a full load is placed on the done front end, in other instances the shackle should be at a 45 degree angle. is this true in this case? and im assuming that its 45 degrees to the rear of the car?

thanks again guys.
