Pics, finally, as promised:


2WD main leaf, de-arced 3"
4WD second leaf, de-arced to match
2WD second leaf, bobbed and de-arced to match
2WD main overload, flattened (Canadian trucks have two overloads)
4WD second overload, flipped
3" blocks, machined to 2" with 4 taper
Relocated shackle mount
Nissan Quest shocks

I'm done with this.

Noticing a lot of rubbery vibration in light acceleration in 1st gear, less so under hard acceleration.

Feels like I had too much angle in the blocks, so I pulled them out and re-machined to 4. Initial drive seems good, but I'll bet 3 would have been fine too.

Not liking how poorly BellTech extruded aluminum blocks hold up to galvanic corrosion. I may build my own blocks out of steel...

Re-machined to 2 taper, but still just the teensiest hint of rubbery vibration. Wondering if I didn't need angled blocks at all....

rkyclrk made 4wd leafs work by merely re-drilling the center pin hole in the leaf springs. It provided a 3-1/2" drop with a re-drill and the shackle looks good:

Follow his work here: 4wd leafs on 2wd

Altered the thread to take photos off my own website, not Photobucket.

Yeah, Photobucket is the worst right now. Soooo many threads are pictureless now unless I pay $100/year. F* em for holding the pictures hostage.
