Had a question to you full sizers when it comes to the rear suspention have you guys ever put the leafs under the frame rather than the stock way were the leafs are offset to the outside of the frame can you put the leafs under the frame like a yota? Will it give you bad body roll? Any info would be great
Thanks guys!!

narowing the width between springs will definatly increase body roll
and possibly affect stability at speed or with a load
why are you thinking of doing this?? lift or tire clearance?

i would not recommend this in a full size with 63" chevy leafs, will be super super soft. The 63's are flexy on a toyota, let alone a full size with them in boarded

just my opinion

yeah thats what i was thinking, also thinking some good shocks would help with body roll. but more or less for body roll i suppose keeping it as low as possible

If your going to go threw all the trouble of adding leafs and moving them inboard you might as well just 4 link it and be done with it.

I wish! Can't afford the johny joints though
Just had the material Latin around the shop and though it would be cool
To run inboard but I may look into 4 linking and see
What the damage would be

What are you mainly going to use this truck for? Unless you are hard core rock crawling where you need as much flex as possible do like I did and most of the guys around here and run sleeves with bushings. I even know a guy that makes them:D
