    My square is a 1976, 1/2 ton, 2WD, long bed. If anyone has a similar truck can you measure the distance between the rear, upper bump stop and the top of the axle housing please? I need this to to set my pinion angle with the ladder bars. TIA, Rick.

    Thanks 78C10. Just what I am after. I'll load it down to 4" as a starting point then recheck after chassis is loaded with all the body parts. I'm only running 6 leafs on mine.
