    Nice looking RC!!!
    The pickup & RCs are a little different on spring mounting points so keep that in mind.
    Jim

    Sent you a PM yesterday about these and some other stuff. Thanks - Travis

    PM Sent - I will probably have more questions.....

    I am replacing skyjacker 2"lift "leveling" springs (installed 1994) with new Alcan springs.  The skyjackers are pushing the front "rear" shackle up against the frame while sitting on flat ground and the springs are pretty flat.  Local shop said that is causing road wandering due to caster issues from wore out springs - is that a correct diagnosis?  One nut on the front shackle drivers side is cracked noticeably.  Thinking I want to replace all bushings and maybe shackles too.

    Randy,
    Yes that does sound correct & I would guess it's a CTD also.

    A lot of guys run this hanger because you can slide the spring forward so it does not hit the frame in the rear.

    I do not think my PM's are making it through. 

    Is CTD Cummins Turbo Diesel?  If so, yes, I have a cummins, W250. 

    I am wondering if my wandering problem can be solved with new shackles and bushings or if I have to get new springs also.  I am 4 hours ahead of East Coast (I am in Alaska).  My springs are flat and the rear shackle on the front spring is hitting the frame with the truck sitting on flat pavement.  I am concerned that this is causing my caster to be off and worse yet, that it may cause issues with breaking stuff I don't want broken.  Our frost heaves in the winter time get pretty bad and I tow quite a bit.....
    My phone number is 907-602-4002.

    Real question is - If I drop the shackles down, will the springs quit bottoming out on the frame? 

    How does a shackle drop or a front connection move affect the caster on these old trucks?

    Would stopping the binding give back a little bit of suspension?

    I am probably going to put all new springs, shackles, bolts, ubolts, shocks on the front and new shocks on the back but if I can just lengthen the shackles and put on new shocks that would save me a lot.  Shipping is cost prohibitive up here in Alaska......

    This kit drops both end of the front spring to keep the steering geometry correct. Yes it will move the spring away from the frame.

    With this kit you will need the HD frame bushing because of the bigger 5/8" grease bolts.

    I'll send you a PM after I get out of Work.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Perfect - thank you.  I'd still like to chat to see if there would be any harm in waiting until winter is over to put the new springs on this truck.

    Yes that is SPECIAL!!

    I have the front hanger in stock height,1" lift,2" lift & 3" lift in stock.
    With the lift hangers you will need the HD frame bushing kit so you can use the 5/8" grease bolt setup.
