Why use shims on the rear axle, why not just redo (rotate) perches? Wider is better 8)

Why redo,?, there is nothing wrong with running a "steel" shim. which has become part of the spring pack 8)
and I think a 7" wider rear axle is wide enough for this rig... :wink:

Nice Shocks! I'm having shock envy! Mine aren't so long or so yellow? Just curious, why such long shocks in the rear? I have some 6 lug wheels if your interested, aluminum 15x 10", small holes like old-school mags.

They were what I bought (I got 10 of these brand new Rough Country gas shocks) off Craigslist for $200.00, awile ago, and sold 2 of them for $50.00, leaving me with the remaining 8 for this project so, I just made them fit,, :lol: I'll bend up some tubing to make a set of front dual shock hoops when I get to that point. 8)

and I'm liking your wheels, 8)
just have to see if you still have them after I get a few over time pay checks... :D

o.k. a little more done,! 8)
*****
got the Dana 44 installed up front with the Toyota rear springs
got the hangers and u-bolts at Ruff-Stuff
got the steel braided brake lines and HD tierod from Parts Mike
8) 8) 8) 8)

sits nice and tall (just like the 80's street truck mini's did LOL!.. :wink: :wink: )

next is to install the 1991 Isuzu Trooper p/s box (I opt'ed to go this route instead of the Topyota IFS box I had, due to the Trooper being basically a bolt-on and only $50.00 off Craigslist) ,and than I can fab up a steering shaft to mate the LUV to a Toyota rag joint, and buy a drag link,........
