Thanks JIMG I am glad they still have plates available as they really help with problems like high tread tires and over size widths. I dont know about second one as its hard to sell a part for one half of a quality sourse? Looks the same BUT??

The picture's too small to decipher what the small parts are, but Jake's includes brackets for the new shock mounts. I emailed the other one with a question about that subject, and maybe they'll answer...

i have one from la concepts. it is hard to screw up 6061 t6 aluminum. mine came with shock hardware, but no instructions. it was pretty east to figure out though. I do think the jakes have a better bottom bracket for the shocks, from the pictures i have seen.

actually i have had 2 of them. one on a lifted cart and one on a stocker. both are holding up well after years of use.

Are you able to add about a 3" spacer between the leaf spring and frame to lift the front without a lift kit. Does this throw the camber off by not having any adjustments. This is the first time I have seen a spacer added so I am just curious.

I solved the short term problem by just shimming the leaf spring down another 7/8" - the unusual dimension is because I used a piece of oak. I'll probably go with Jake's extension plate unless I decide to make one myself. I'm always looking for excused to buy new tools (i.e. milling machine and spool gun).

I have no idea who/where/how my lift kit was done. It has what look like a spindle lift (i.e. the spindles are on the ends of 6" arms below the pivots. It also had a 1" shim between the frame and the leaf spring. I added another 7/8" and it eliminated all of the rubbing except on an extreme right turn. It still has the camber adjustment, although the eccentric bolt is long gone, but you can still slide the leaf spring to port or starboard.

The biggest problem with adding shims of any thickness between springs and frame is you cannot get proper camber unless you change the the heighth of the upper control arm mount to a equal amount, or I have added length to upper control arm. Both are not easy unless you have the ability to cut and weld and fabricate parts? I did see a very clever fix by one fellow that added a spacer to the delta upper clevis to allow proper alignment. I had my doubts as it looked like too much leverage on a already weak Clevis? In my opinion the clevis is poorly made from factory to start with but by offsetting even more is looking for a complete failure? I would have rather made a new HD clevis to solve both problems?

You just need to make a stop to keep the wheels from turning so far.
