I just finished this upgrade with the following: Calvert Racing split monoleafs, Cal Tracs and Rancho 9000 shocks. Also, I went with the SSBC break kit and welded on the back brace. I had the whole thing powder coated. Lessons learned: The Rancho Shocks will not mount correctly behind the housing with the back brace installed so, I had to swap the perches and turn them around so the shocks would mount in front of the housing, this works fine. I will be going to the track Friday to test it all.

Did you check for shock clearence through the full travel of the rear end. I would think that with the shocks in front thay would lean back towards the top mount. Keep us posted how it works out. Dave

Just a question, but did you use a jig for the diff when you welded on the brace? Wondering cause i was thinking about welding a brace on my 8 3/4 but didn't know if it will distort from the heat. Thanks
