    What are the specs on the kit? What all are you doing to the truck? Looks good so far.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Acctually there is no positive caster in it. It just looks like it in that picture. It lays back 7 degrees through the entire cycle.

    The kit is pulling 26" of travel with a 12" shock. Has 1 degree of camber change at droop and 8 a bump. The truck will be getting a roll cage, tube/plate rear half, and 4 link with our trailing arm and rearend housing.

    no i meant 26" running a taller spindle with the upper tabs higher and more torwards the center of the truck allowed for 26" with minimal camber change.

    Holy Sh@* 26"!! How wide is it going to be?? Bumps running on the lower arms or off of the shock mount onto the spindle?

    Thanks,
