U Bolt Flip

To secure the rear axle we performed a U-bolt flip and had a custom set of U-bolts made then fabricated a 1/2-inch-thick spring plate from some old scrap plate we had sitting around. Once we had the pinion angle properly positioned we welded the spring perches in place and plugged the 1/2-ton's factory tone ring sensor into the top of the differential housing.
