1]"and beefed up TTB drop bracket"

2]"I lifted the rear with Chevy 64" springs and ext shackles."

Hi PlumCrazy,

1]I was wondering if I could cut and turn at the pivot point without using a drop bracket, kind of an L shape.
The quick look I took I don't see any interference.

2]What year, make, and model do I look for?

Thanks,
Richard

People do to a "cut and turn" to gain a little clearance, but they are far from an L shape. They dont angle it any more than 45* if that.

The 64" leaves came on 88-98 full size Chevy's 2 or 4 wheel drive. Best to go with springs from a 1500 to get the right spring rate. You have to move the front hanger 6" forward on a Ranger.

I wonder why? I'm building this truck for short course, the course has some fairly big jumps. So, I'm trying to get some travel numbers without spending. I have the tools and skills to fab though, but not the knowledge of what to do. Learning as I go :)
