Question type: General

3 Answers


Did you weld on new leaf spring mounts to the top of the axle with centering pin or cut off the old ones and re-attach. These are required. After this is fixed and you still have axle wrap you can install a set of traction bars.

Replaced with new brackets and weled them on..any kind of torque on rear end twist up and driveshaft hits floor


Well something is not right. Can you take some pictures of the new brackets and the u-bolts.
