While waiting for the tires and wheels to arrive I did a preliminary trail fitting of the rear end and suspension to see where the leaf spring mounts would land on the frame and how close to the needed width I would be. After the fit up I ordered the needed mounts and slide brackets from Speedway Motors along with a axle to spring mount kit. I will need to have the tires and wheels in order to get a better idea of where the total width is going to layout. I will also need to mount the body back on with the rear fenders off to get the definitive layout before I decide on narrowing the rear end and ordering fiberglass fenders if I need to cut them.
