Finally got the 8" rear end back together and under the car. Alot more expense than I expected. When I removed the leaf springs, I found out that they were both broken. The ones off my parts car were also broken, so I ended up getting a set custom made. I installed a mini spool, and kept the 3.00 gears for now. I'll get a set of 3.80's next winter, along with the rear disc conversion when I have more money to throw around.
After 3 weeks in the air, it's nice to get tires back under the old girl!
