Lift Springs install help
I have a pair of 6 inch Weldtec leaf springs on the way via fedex, supposed to be here the 20th. I will be removing the Reyco/Granning rear air suspension system and installing the leaf springs in its place.
I have all of the brackets, bolts, nuts, axle plates, U-bolts, ect... Only thing i dont have are the rear shocks because i dont know if 6 inches in the rear will be enough (i may have to add a 1 inch block).
Does anyone have any pointers to make the job go smoother or any issues i should watch out for? I will be doing it by myself and im told the springs weigh right at 100 pounds each. My rear axle weight is in excess of 7400 pounds.
Someone stold my 12 ton jackstands out from in front of my garage door so i had to buy new jackstands and i picked up a new heavy duty floor jack while i was at it. My old jack is aluminum and not rated for this heavy truck so it is on its last leg. My truck is a 2005 E350 Chinook.
