Speced the axels, I got some help from another member. He had already done his and mine measured the same. I had the shock mounts installed at Dexter and ordered them already welded on. If you want more info just shoot me a PM or e-mail I'll send you all the info I have.

TN-TUNDRA, the wheels shown on my blog are from trailertiresandwheels.com and fit great. I went with the quick lube not the never lubes.

Looks great! That is where I got my new wheels from also. I'll have to take some pics when I get back down there to install. For ref the shock option is
top shock mount option E-1492..
