    You're pretty much maxed out without notching. I didn't see any mention of shackles... Are they still stock? Also don't forget that you can still redrill the front spring hangers for another tiny amount.

    You can even put slider shackles so that the leafs are practically on the frame for that ultra low.

    U got any more pics of that set up have? Yea my shackles are stock. I was wondering if they could be shorter or even get rid of them and bolt the leaf directly to the shackle mount?

    Cant bolt it directly to the mount. When a leaf spring compresses it flattens out and gets longer so it has to be able to move or it will bind. The slider system that BatryOpratedBoy mentioned is the closest thing to that.

    This is the most relevant picture I found dude. It was just a quick google search at 2am though haha.

    Here's a link to a kit. Just look up "leaf spring slider" There's a few threads on Jalopy Journal as well speaking about their reliability. Bearings are better than the Teflon block and don't seem to get affected by street use. YMMV. http://pitstopusa.com/i-5069101-afco-leaf-spring-slider-assembly.html

    Oh and make sure to account for Pinion Angle change when/if you do this.

    How does this rear set up ride and how much air do you run in the shocks? I want to do the same thing and hold out on a notch for a bit.
