I got out and worked on my truck, WHOOOO HOOOOO!

I noticed that the cab was lower in the rear, then I noticed that the frigging cab is hitting the running board apron and dented it! Man am I glad it's not painted, that would SUCK. Anyway, I removed the bolts and jacked up the cab to proper height and it needs a friggin half inch spacer on the shackle to the cab.

I don't get it, as far as I know these bolt in like I had it. They "settled" I guess but how in the world can I make up for that half inch without making a spacer. Which isn't a big deal, I just don't get why I would need to.

I also got my kitty stairs made from stratch, including going and getting the materials, did the whole thing, I am apparently better at making kitty stairs than custom trucks.
