ben made one a while back but i really sucked it up that night, first time on a drift track, and the axle was hopping around like a dope fiend.

so i did a little more work tonight after school heres my basic idea for the set up.
new shock hoop w/ brace bars to other crossmember
X brace to rear crossmember
bed bars to stop any bed flex
multiposition mounting for rear shocks






1. tonight i put the 5/8 to 1/2" shims inside the shocks
2. test fitted one of the shocks and cut all the metal the make the shock hoop tomorrow.
3. sat and drank a beer and stared at it

Check out a Nissan Desert Runner, the bed set up is pretty simple, they just welded corners from the bed to the floor to keep the sides from flexing.
