Rear suspension shackle box thing -

for the rear suspension, my shackle angle used to blow ass, and my leaf packs were way too stiff, so I had to do something about it.

I cut off the part of the shackle box that flares out -




drew out a flat pattern for my rear shackle box replacer thingy -


had my balding shop bitch cut it out for me -


had it formed up -


fit well -


drilled holes for plug welds -


kept the original bolt for extra strength? -


welded and ground -


made some tabs -


welded them on, boxed them in, and painted it -


much better shackle angle at ride height -



and my rear axle actually kinda flexed some!



all in all, I think I moved the bolt about 2" down and 3" or so (maybe 4"?) forward...

I also removed a leaf from each pack...

the ride is A LOT nicer...

I can't find a bald shop bitch that is balder then myself, so I have to be my own bitch, as usual.
