I don't know of any shops in SA doing cut and turns. That doesn't mean it's not happening but I am not sure I would let them do my truck. Lol

If you wanna ship it(bare housing). You just tell me the exact castor, w respect to pinion angle, you want.

I can only build what you request. I don't have a stock 80 front setup to accommodate mockups. If you have it all sorted, I'm game.

Shipping kinda sucks, but if there's nobody over there...

I dunno if it's worth it, but if it is let me know. Whatever you tell me is what you get. Sort out the panhard area as well...

Just make sure you know EXACTLY where you want the pinion. The mod is simple on a leaf sprung rig, but a gigantic PITA on a linked/coil sprung. Carving loose all those factory brackets and coil mounts is so cumbersome(because they need to be salvaged and reattached) that buying aftermarket pieces to replace is absolutely worth discussing.

Warrants a good discussion on doing just that.

Gimme the cliff note version:)

You can have this^ if you want, but it's incredibly hard to weld on your truck when it's 1500 miles away:) I can put anything you want on a bare axle housing you sent me, but you need to grab a mud member with a 220v welder in Texas for the frame side mods(which are somewhat involved for shock placement if coilovers).

Thanks man i appreciate it , and soon you'll be getting the axle housing to do the relocations of brackets , and new ones , i'll wait to move into coilovers , maybe in the future , but as of right now i should b good running the flexis
