    No, never had time to throw them on. But once I get beck in town, I'll put 'em on and data log a little bit.



    This is next on the list of future mods. I ran into a problem with my hangers tho. The hangers caltracs sent didn't work so I'm hunting down the appropriate hardware. It's only a matter of time before I get these bolted on. Can't wait to run these on the street......and the track

    If caltracs sent you the wrong stuff, shouldn't they be fixing the problem?

    They said those were the only type of hangers they had and that they didn't have anything else to send me. On a better note, I tracked down some bell tech shackles and hangers that I can modify to use the caltracs.

    The only thing wrong with the hangers was the ride height. I currently have a DJM 2/4 drop which uses lower A-arms up front and shackles/hangers in the rear. When I pulled off the DJM hanger and monuted the caltracs hanger, the bolt hole was about an inch lower - which would have raised the rear of the truck about an inch. I found some belltech hangers that will work with the caltracs. I might have to modify them a bit but they'll work. I'm thinking about doing a write-up when I go to install the caltracs with the new hangers.....

    I already returned the caltracs hangers. From what I have researched tho, these are the appropriate hangers for a 2/4 drop when using caltracs
