PMF Build Thread (Pics-a-plenty)

I have a thread in the Suspension sub-forum but its pretty quiet up there, was more of a couple questions so I posted there.

Ill start a thread and update as I go down here for those interested
Got started on Saturday and just doing it down where I work, no lift but have forklift, floor jack and a overhead crane. Also note Im not an expert lift installer so alot is trial and error and r&r...

Anyways, started on the rear doing the traction blocks. Just removing the wheels/spacers is a job itself

Here are some pics after I got blocks in place. Looked to me like axle was to far rearward and my ubolts were a bit too short.







On Sunday I went and removed the overload spring and block and moved the leaf springs back a hole on the blocks in attemps to center axle some.
I also got the bars attached to blocks but not how I wanted them.







Continued....

Today after work I got the frame mount bracket holes drilled and installed and removed bars to re-adjust threads to line up better with frame mount bracket.

Still looks to me like the drivers side wheels are more centered than the passenger side...







Not sure If ill get anywhere tomorrow or not, but I may try and get carrier bearing drop in. Im also going to take out sway bar links, cut em and get a buddy to weld in a couple inch section for me so I can keep the sway bar, rather than buy new links.

The as$ end of your rig looks sick. Nothing beats some wide tires on a dually.

Got the carrier drop installed today, that was about it. Took out pass side sway bar link, didnt feel like the driver side, its tight with the fuel tank n ***t right there...

Get started on the front pretty quick here though.

Edit: Pics of drop
