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.

Isn't there supposed to be a rubber or poly body bushing in there anyway?
