    As long as it isnt kinked at the bend it should be able to be straightened out. If not go get you a back half off another truck and weld it on there. You will see a weld and overlap on the frame closer to the cab, thats the rear half of the frame that can be replaced. Done a couple myself and insurance companies loves gm for that.

    cool thanks man. I also threw around the idea of fourlink and backhalfing it but idk if I want to that far just yet know that guys are running 9's with just shock relocation. Skeet, yea it does spool very quick, especially at interstate speeds.

    George you thinking ladder bars over 4 link? I know losing the leaf setup would lighten it up a good bit. Shawn, I plan on making some brackets for the seats. I'll take pictures as I go through it. Gotta get cage figured out first

    Allen once said to two of us this past yr

    " a 4 link has a thousand settings and only 2 work"

    ladder bar typically is setup once then shocks get slight adjustments


    4link= street/strip
    ladder bar= track winner

    Good deal! Ladder bar is simpler too. You think I would need a rear sway bar?

    9" with a anti roll bar or drag bar is what id use and that is what allen has

    his chassis is a work of art
