I used the clear push-in style like you see on commercial rigs worst case you back into something and push one out they are cheap and for about 25-30 you can upgrade to led bulbs when you have cash.

Fasteners on international and the bearing shop across the street.

The rod ends were about 12$ each and the rod and nuts were like 7$

Lowered my *** end down and am running into some issues

What it looked like yesterday

The *** end sat about 1.5" higher

I swapped some stock shackles in and got this

Sits much better but now the shackles hit over bumps


I clearanced the shackle relocators when I got them so I can't move them a hole back.

Suggestions?

So I did a little more work and came up with this
The 1.5" shackles moved to the center hole


Shackle angle


Used my hi lift to test the compression to make sure it wouldn't bottom out.

Did you ever run on the highway with that light bar cover you had in the flipped up position ? Was wondering about massive wind noise .
