I noticed that, I just picked the wrong thread to reply to.
A moderator will be around and close this thread down soon.
Your welcome, I like to pass on some of the knowledge that I have picked up along my journey through this life. Sometimes the simple answer is the one we over look or as I often do over think a problem.
I have had projects on hold for days, weeks, months and in one case close to a year and a half. I keep going over scenarios, like a one person brainstorming session. I've got this hang up about having to make my stuff better than it was before the problem arose.
The correct track is a good start and I thought of going to it for 2reasons both my axels were bent needing aligment and I wanted to gain a couple of inches for tire clearance, to allow for an upsized tire. I kept putting it of, because I had found a tire that wore like iron.
I finally had to do something to fix the broken shackle mount that happened somewhere in the last few hundred miles from home, back from Alaska. Never lost a tire due to it neither.
Get home, I stop at our Sani-dump and see the carnage. After thinking it over for a few days, I opted to just upgrade my axels to 6K.
After all is said and done new axels and disk brakes, I have it all back together and looking at the finished product I wasn't happy with the spring hangers. Then comes the sheared off hanger from another member. I really liked his custom made heavy duty hanger. I'll be doing that in the spring and ask for 1" rise for that extra tire clearance.
I can't remember if Correct track includes wet bolts, but if your going that route, I highly recommend doing the wet bolt kit at the same time. The kit includes heavy duty shackles, greasable bolts and bronze bushing.
