I may be gettin an 84 1ton dodge within the next week I want to get an idea of what kind of setup I want to run. I know that when leafs are done right they will flex every bit as much as coils. I plan on running atleast 38s, bare with me here Im an ex jeeper :flipoff2: Lets see what yall are running and how well you like the setup

well i got 8" skyjacker leafs up front and 5" superlift leafs in the rear with the stock 3" block. I HATE THESE SPRINGS!!!! im looking into a set of Alcans with a shackle reversal. what i got is stiff as hell it rides like a brick!!!! i made my shackle reversals from plans on ram charger central. i havent put them on yet cuz ive been to lazy to reset the pinion angle.

Index to some other write ups including stuff for the front nother linky

This is not my stuff and I haven't run it, but I've seen it work and it is a pretty cool setup for older fullsize Dodge.

I built my front suspension very similar to PJTPW's, and it works great.

I've also seen PJTPW's rig wheeling and his front and rear suspension work great.

For my own rear suspension, I used boxed RCC shackle flip brackets, mounted on the "wrong" sides to move the mounting point back and used longer 56" long Chevy springs with homemade 8" shackles. This also works very well for me.
