The truck look fantastic. I'm a keep-it-stock kinda guy, BUT you really did a classy job on that truck. If I was to mod mine, that's what I'd strive for. Again, REALLY NICE.

[QUOTE=teking;277111]Here are some pics of the passenger side spring under for the Chevy D60. Bolts are not trimmed yet.

In the last pic you can see where they used a square U bolt to go over the old mount. Unfortunately I see in the pic a little daylight between the U bolt and the mount. Will need to fix that. But basically it 1 u-bolt, 1 Square u-bolt, a ground out bottom mounting bracket and a bottom plate.

The trick was knowing where to grind on the pumpkin case. You can see it was notched for the bottom bracket to fit.

Thanks for the follow-up. I didn't like cutting a small piece of pumpkin out, but like you said it was a necessary evil to make it work. Going SUA was worth the extra effort in my opinion. The only part I regret is that my better half has a 78 CJ7 that sits slightly higher that my truck. And yes she's measured it several times to prove it and says that I have a "baby" truck. Oh well C'est la vie.

Your truck looks great
