With the front sitting 1.5 to 2" higher should I install an add a leaf in the rear to try and level it out again. How bad does it effect the ability for the springs to flex. Its still the stock rear spring with a ruff stuff shackle flip.I hope to install devers when I can afford them. Any help would be great.

My rear came out 3.5 inches lower in the rear than the front. Did you use 4 or 6" deavers?

To compensate i have 2 add a leafs, the lift block and the stock block in the rear. and its still pullin the gangsta lean, squattin 2 inches in the rear. I think im gonna get a set of 4" deavers for the front. it has 6 now.

oo and with two add a leafs in rear it feels fine. my buddy drove my bronco the other day and was quite jealous that it rides better than his 2003 STOCK f250. haha

Nice build. I'm also interesting in what springs you used. Did you build the steering and trac bar or buy a kit?

I used 6" devers up front the early ones, I do have slight coil spring bow but not to bad.. I think with the shackle flip if I add the add a leaf it will sit right at level.. Not sure if that's what I want to do yet..

Mine has a little coil bow as well. the coils actually bent the coil cups and made it bow like crazy, so i took them off beat them flat and put this piece of 1/4" steell under them so they wouldnt bend again. Hopefully yours wont bend since you bought the james duff ones. i didnt know this could potentially be an issues until after the fact.



But i didnt angle it as a shim. im gonna take it apart again and angle it to get rid of the bow. Ive been ridin mine for a couple months now doin the gangsta lean... idk i kinda like it.. haha
