well I was installing my 3 Link today ...put the axle to ride height ...attached the driveshaft and started to do the pinion ...put the angle finder on top of the diff. bracket and started lifting the front and when I hit 0* the driveshaft started binding ...so tommorow I have to take it out ...how much of a cut am I going to be looking at??? ...

tell me if im doing this wrong ...

the frame under the cab is 13" from the ground ...so I put the bottom of my tires 10" from the ground ...is that what I am suppose to do ..?? ...maybe that can be a cause of my pinion problem

yeah man ya know the whole point of a proper link system is to allow your axle to have as much movement as possible and keep pinion angle change to a minimum so a complete cycle with jasons products will not produce much pinion angle change= 3/5 link owns! so within a couple inches of ride height is fine.

axle 4.5" roughly from bottom of frame where axle sits. your springs still in rear?

if it is a measurement of 1/2" or so should I just move the gas tank x-member closer to the rear 1/2" to not cut the driveshaft ...anybody ever do this or have pics???

you see in your other thread I posted you should seriuosly consider building a new back half if you can afford it, make the 3 link work with it..but with your idea of moving it back the problems you will have is the gas tank fitting correctly which is managable, and that your wheels might be obviuosly off center in the wheel wells cause I think 1/2" might be an understatement, but I am thinkin to get it shortened is around 100$
