Last Night i started to Lift and Sas my truck, which is a 92 GMC Sonoma with a 4.3L V6 (non-vortec :( ) its being lifting 8-9"s with 36" TSL Swampers, swapping in 1979 Ford F150 Axles, Dana 44 up front, and a 9" Rear (posi), and soon to have 4.88's or 5.29 Gears. Right now i got the rear end set in place and bolted in and the pos IFS cut out.

looks pretty good

on your front radius arms/links you should have made them arc up and sit closer to the frame for more ground clearance but it should do alright the way it is now.

i appreciate the build up

Awesome! I never thought it would turn out anything like what you've done to it.... love it!

On a side note... I finally met your dad the other day, he was in my work buying stuff through our account, and I was like, who are you? Are you a Mathers? Why don't I know you!?
I may have scared him a little.
