Front Suspension

The instructions state to lower the axle in order to fit the new springs and shocks in their new homes. We had no problem getting enough droop to fit the springs. However, the vent line for the front axle and the vacuum fittings for the CAD fork didn’t have enough droop. Once we got the truck back on the floor, we were able to get the very end of the factory breather back in the frame bracket with enough slack, but we had to add about six inches of vacuum tubing to get the front axle shift fork hooked back up again. The truck sits very near level with the front, maybe a fraction of an inch higher. We are hoping the new springs will settle a bit over time and level the truck back out.
