That sailun pdf says the 16" sizes are for trailer applications only.

Where the LT tire falls short is at full load with the scrubbing of tandem/tridems. Torquing the tires sideways is really hard...

The wheels can be centered one way or the other. Not both ways. The hub is a few thousandths smaller, maybe even a ~1/4" smaller, to let the tapered seats do the job. 16x6" or 16x6.5" wheels are...

The real gain with more speeds is filling in the big gaps below 1:1. Take one gear each for granny, direct, and OD.... you still have 4 gears to play with. Set your axle ratio for the top speed you...

I paired the 7226S coils with a 33" tire in the rear only. Has as slight rake, but looks level.

Make sure the KYBs are for the 4000# front end or they will pull out out of the frame.

One of my setups work just as tcows describes. The other doesn't work... similar to yours. Will have to investigate what the problem is.

Those light metal straps on the ps hard lines is probably to help prevent vibration fatigue. There were on my '90 D250 too. I bet that stuff disappears the first time the lines are changed...

If I were to do my mods over again, I would have done the spring much sooner.

I suggest picking up a Bosch VE gasket kit. Good chance of tearing a gasket or it not sealing again. I got fed up...

Looks like the box has developed a bit of a dead spot in the middle. My recently installed 'good used' box is about the same.

Most likely nothing to worry about with stock leafs.

I have successfully run 3" lift and 5" shackles by grinding/smoothing the stock Saginaw CV... or a stock Spicer (2ndgen) CV works unmodified.

Replace any parts with obvious/generous play in them, and make sure you have at least 5 caster. (Stock/factory spec is not enough.)

The reason I suggested the tuner isn't specifically to have more power for towing. Some of them give you gauges and tune the transmission also.

The cummins D250's sticker should read 3830# front and 5450# rear. (What my '90 says)

Most of the parts I buy on rockauto (that fit) are listed as for the 4000# front and 9000# rear.

I know those items exist.... kind of a bandaid, IMO, for a tweaked housing, weak/worn kingpins, etc. Camber tends not be a problem unless its so bad its directly causing uneven tire wear.

I caution against re-preloading used bearings - it can earn you an unscheduled towtruck ride. Only shim enough to take up the slack. ;)
