I am looking for any info on how to locate the proper positioning of the tubes through the frame for the rear shackle mounts i.e. how far between them and how long should the tube should be are things I am looking for. I hope big bad pete has done this already as it will be fresh in his mind. Although any info from anyone would be a great help. Thanks a bunch.

I'm going to live buggies in the rear, so I'm cutting my rearmost shackle mounts for the rear leafs off and using them for the rear mounts at the front. This means my shackle will be under my frame which, in my humble opinion, is the way to go. As for where to put them, that's a darn good question! Mike would you mind sending me those articles as well? Thanks a bunch.

I used allpro jigs too!! I was going to use the rear shackle under the frame but then you will have to much caster!! I run a droped hanger and 44044's and 1.5 longer than stock shackle and it gave me about 6" lift... I put ott cross over steering on and I had major bump steer!! I ended up getting Al from 4offrd to cut of my knuckles and rotate my housing 12 degrees!!!!! I now have no bump steer and perfect drive shaft angle and it flexes like a S.O.B!!!!!!!!
I put alot of $$ inot my truck to make it perform pefect and be very reliable... don't cheet yourself and cheep out! Any other q's just ask!! I'll help anyone out!

Hey poguebilt why do you think you had so much bumpsteer? I am going to run a 2" dropped hanger and 2" longer shackle with either 44044"s or stock waggies as I am only trying to clear 33"s. Do you think I will have the same problem.

hmm.. the hanger i used had bout 1 inch drop and the shackles are sleeved in the stock location and are only 1.5 inches longer than stock.... I used the 44044's and they moved my dif forward 2"! and I put in OTT crossover steering.... when I did it I though I wouldn't have any caster/ bump steer probs... but I did.... the other thing is you can get shims but as far as I know you can on;y get em in 2,4,6 deg. and I needed 12! so Im guessing it had to be the springs! I know that if you have stock hangers and 1.5 longer shackle in stock location with 5" skyjacker springs you will have no prob... but I wanted/needed the dif moved forward 2". I run 36 tslsx and also have 3" body and still run the corner of my fender under max flex....
other than that I really don't know what to say.... maybe someone else might know??

Sounds like you and Dan O have same or similar front setup's. Dan, are you having the same bump steer problems and if not, how is your setup different?

It means Solid Axle Swap. No need for you to worry about that though dude, yours came with one.

I have that exact same set up,my front hanger is 1 inch lower 1.5 inches forward then stock and a 1.75 inch longer then stock shackle.I havent notised(dammit I can't spell)any bump steer,I have had the ocasional shake,but my stock steering box mount(the one on top of the frame) has cracked off.I dident bother fixing it because I have to move the box forward anyways, the tierod just touches the pitman arm under full compression.I just found that out yesterday because I fillaly got a front drive shaft in.the angle sucks big time,4wd in high range over like 5 mph shakes the front end,low range is fine though.I would like to turn the knuckles but with the ammount of bracing I put on there it would be a bitch

Now when you guys say 1 or 2 inches lower do you mean 1" of actual lift lower (2" = 1" of lift of course) or just 1" more metal (which would be 0.5" of lift)?
