Thanks alot for the info and pictures! The instructions should really have some pictures. It turns out I had everthing mounted up right. I spoke with a TCI tech yesterday and he said that there is enought variation in these old trucks that sometimes they don't fit. I guess the rear crossmember is back farther than it should be. I also don't like how the springs are not parrallel with each other because the frame gets wider at the rear, so I will weld up some plates and mount the rear shackes where they should be and parrallel to each other. Fortunatly the front end installation has been covered by magazines, because the instruction are really terrible.
