Well, I'm back and I am looking for advice from the old guru's at orc on the new incarnation of the beaterchevy.
This shackle angle worries me, and I was wondering what you guys recommend I do to ensure that the final angle is where I want it.
Springs are custom, I asked for flex and about a 5", and its sitting at what seems to be ~10" right now.. no weight except the frame on the springs obviously, but that is what brings me here. Do you guys expect that the couple thousands pounds of weight that will be on that front axle will bring the shackle angle back past vertical and bring down the lift enough?
I'm hoping that with all the weight on it the front arch of the spring will flatten out quite a bit pushing the diff back towards being in its orignal position and cause the shackle to tilt back.. but I really don't know..
Specs will be 350 on propane/465/???-205 doubler.. shaved, welded, and disc braked 14bolt (done), posi D44, 3.73 gears, Q78L16 swampers, front/rear recievers, multimount 8274.
82 frame, 76 cab, 78 clip, and logger box.
