Pics or diagrams would be a swell addition. And remember to type slow, I don't read that fast. Laughing

So the best and easiest way to achieve this is with leaf springs? Fabricating mounts to hang leaf sounds lots easier than trying to do coils.

That's what I figured looking around the web at other sites. A plan has been hatched in my head for a while about this, Just need some more knowledge, not even sure of the questions.

yep, main concerns with setting up a leaf suspension is just mounting brackets (which on a framed vehicle are simple) pinion angle, and caster angle for the front.
