The Lone Ranger – 60/14 Bolt swap – Bastard Pack

In an effort to try to get rid of some of the vibes I’ve been dealing with, and to get the truck to sit level again, I hacked up another set of chevy leaves to wrap up my bastard pack. In the past, I had already added an AAL ”Boosting the Rear” (Link), but it wasn’t quite enough.

So I took the stock pack that looked like this:
Sara L.: Build and Misc &emdash;

Cut down the second to the top leaf of another chevy pack:
Sara L.: Build and Misc &emdash;

Squeezed it into the leaf pack so that the cut down leaf is now 3rd from the top:
Sara L.: Build and Misc &emdash;

And now the truck sits more level, and actually rides a bit better and still flexes rather well. Unfortunately, it didn’t solve my vibration that I’ve been fighting, (wheel balance) so it looks like the next step will be to outboard the shocks. It’ll be pretty dang tight, but I think I can get it done.
