Worried about stock blocks? I worry more about the rest of my Dodge hanging together sometimes.

There's 2-4" to be gained by creatively relocating your spring hangers. A good option if you have to replace yours anyway due to rust deterioration. My example has other mods thrown in, but you'll get the idea...

Lol. 😆 I've had to postpone my project till we get 1st cut on some hay fields. Rain has me backed up anyway. I'm itching to work on my truck as I moved my engine in the shop again today and it wasn't toward my truck. I hope when my conversion is done it all holds together but I've got to take it apart first and the delays are killin' me! Have a great Memorial Day weekend as we remember the loved and lost.... God Bless America

No progress. I'm already frustrated but will see this threw. Did change front and rear differential fluid as the front was leaking. Was happy that all looked like new in both axles. There is my bright side. Sorry for no updates but hopefully it will pick up.
