Re: Att:WillysWanter or 4-link Experts!!
Ok. So Jason what your saying to do is make up the bracket first for the pumkin side and have it fallow the contour of the spring pad/perch? Just curious if this is what you mean because there is alot of gussets and stuff coming down off the pumkin to the axle tube right under the spring bad. On the lower side there is also the spot where the U-bolt would have been to fasten on the leaf springs. What do you think would happen if I were to cut off the spring pad on the pumkin and also some of that gusset untill I have it smoothed out a little more than it is now? then just make my brakets and Tig Weld everything on? I doubt I would lose much streghth wise.
And also...your brakets to bolt onto the links on the axle...are they out the side toward the drive shaft or out the front? reason I ask is because I have seen both and I think if the brackets were to wrap around on front side(bumper side of the truck) it would be stonger and easier on the axle and tubes.
