    Thanks, been putting in a bunch of hours on it and now the weather's gone to crap. Just picked up a dropped axle for it. Gonna wheel it out to Dave Schiemanns and change axles out there

    Now this bitch sits right. First pic's are the way it was when I got it. Then the dropped pic's.
    Wheeled it out to my friends (Roadburner 1) and helped me install new true 3" dropped axle (from our own 296V8 Greg Haynes) Greg does great work and I would strongly recommend him. New spindles, dropped steering arms, kingpins etc. and got the front right but when I got it home the rear was to high and the front tires rubbed. Called Coker and ordered a set of 4.50/4.75-16 Firestone bias plys. Fixed the front.
    In the rear had a new reverse eye main leaf made and took out 2 leafs, added new Pete and Jake shackles while it was apart. That got the rear tires up just inside the wheel wells and left some rake.
    Goes to the upholstery shop Monday and be ready to cruise. Gary

  5. I'll be needing a dropped axle for the 38 soon as well! Hopefully I'll be diving into that project in the next few weeks.

    Your new stance looks GREAT! Looks like you'll have some good weather for it here real soon.

    Thanks, you should contact 296V8 here on the HAMB. His dropped axles are as good as it gets. Gary
