I'll post pics of the double cardan joint Drive shaft. Should be ready on Wednesday. Also my brake lines will be longer as well!!!

 

The things that need tweaking:

 

Coil-overs, they're GARBAGE. Nuff said

I "should" get a sway bar :-)

Springs are a bit soft.Won't know for sure until I get the shocks to hold air.

Nice looking job. I'm soooooooo freaking jealous ! This might be my next step. If I bend another tie rod that might be my last straw any chance I could get those Staang fabed parts ?

is there a specific reason for using the expensive coilover or could an axle be setup the same as jeep cherokee front axles with spring buckets and seperate shocks?

I think you would have a hard time getting coils to fit with the limited amount of room both on the truck and axle.
