Sitting nice & low now! The notch looks good, you gonna run bigger rims later on?
yeah im pretty sure ill get a bigger set of wheels later on. my buddy has a set of gmc sierra 17s that hed sell me for cheap.
damn thats nice, notch seems a little far back though, am i wrong?
the notch is set 3/8in forward of the axle centerline.

so you don't want it (the axle) to sit square in the middle of the notch?
no you dont.
im, in the future, goin to bag this truck. to do that im going to be using a triangulated 3 link. when you use any type of link system for suspension, radius problems arise. when i mount the axle on 2 parallel bars instead of a leaf spring, the axle is goin to travel in a semi-circular motion as the truck goes up and down.
now when the truck is layed out, the axle is goin to move forward anywhere from a 1/4in to 1/2in.
thats why the notch is set forward.
anyways, i went to the junkyard today and found what i think is an l16 exhaust manifold. they only want 20buck for it. so im gonna go pick it up tomorrow.
so hopefully by this weekend i can redo the exhaust so i can lower the truck some more!

Hey man, the truck looks great...how many leaves are left in the rear? It looks like there is only one...? How is the axle wrap when you romp on it from a stop light? I would like mine down more in the back, just wondering about the results for performance (cause an L16 is such an animal off the block!).
it has 2 leafs basically. ive got the main leaf and the thicker overload. thats all.
when i take off from a light i know that its torqing up, and it just makes the rear on the truck sqwat a bit.
im soon going to be flipping the main leafs, to get the back a little lower.
now im not sure how many leafs a 520/521 has, but i wouldnt monoleaf it if you dont have to. maybe take on leaf out and go with a 2, maybe 3inch lowering block.

anyways, i finally got a non emission exhaust manifold from a buddy of mine. so today i stated making the new head-pipe for it.
its not pretty but itll do what it needs to do...
im gonna clean it up some more when i get to building the pip part of it.
but at least i have the baseplate done.

heres what ive got so far...
what its gonna look like hopefully...
i left some material inside the pipe, so i might be able to weld it up on the inside of the pipe, so i have more room to get a socket on the nuts that hold it on the manifold.

oh yeah, ive had the truck for a little more than a year now! haha! and in that whole year i didnt have to do one single thing to it. it just ran and drove fine. untill like 3 weeks ago when it wouldnt hardly run.
so i pulled the fuel filters and they were full to the brim of nasty, concrete staining rust liquid.
so after 2 new filters it runs awesome again.
other than that i havnt done really anything else to it.
still tryin to get some money for the exhaust, and the parts for the 5 speed swap.
so that about it...
