Started on my custom rear leaf pack.  We'll see how it works out.  I am combining my stock 98 leafs with a set of 02 stock leafs.  The '02 leafs are supposed to be pretty new.  I was going to use the '02 for my new main leaf but the 98 main it isn't coming off with ease and I didn't buy new shackles so I will just leave it as is.

Not much more accomplished today

Any body have a resolution to the leaves fanning out so much.  I don't want to limit flex but I don't want too much strain and breakage.  The only thing that makes me think it would be okay is it's just unsprung weight so it really should only be holding up the weight of the axle and some added pressure from the flexed side transferred but idk, I'm no engineer.

Maxed out u-bolts:

Shackle Angle:


Flex Shots(seemed to flex better and better traction):


Fanning out leaves(I am worried that the main leaf will break, any comments fixes?):

Negative Arc(will be fixed with bump stops):



Rain...

Trimmed down u-bolts and leaf center bolt:

Bump Stop(mockup):
