I run the waggy springs in spring under configuration with a v8 and I don't get much axle wrap. I could definitely see the need for spring over though

2" BL, 4" stretch all on saggy waggy springs.

Worst case I will go with a RuffStuff anti wrap bar. Its not my DD.
It's a leaf spring thing they all wrap it just depends how bad. I ran a bar like that when I was SOA rear for awhile and it kept everything where its supposed to be. With the 2" springs you'll prob be fine from the added arch.

I ordered the springs the other day but Amazon only had 1 in stock. They still haven't updated and shipped my order so I think I'll cancel it and order through someone else. How weird is it that Amazon has them with Prime?
Screwed around with the brakes again this evening. I adjusted the booster rod a couple times to get rid of the slack in the pedal. It helped but I think i may need to thread it out a little farther. During some testing I can get the fronts to lock up quick in the dirt but the driver side locks up before the passenger. So I bled the passenger and didn't get any air out but I can definitely squeal them on concrete if I push hard enough. I don't think the 8.8 is grabbing much. I may follow The Goob's lead and mess with the prop valve.
A little update for anyone that is following. My 44044s should be here tomorrow. I think I am going to bolt them up with the short side forward so I can still run my driveshaft and pinion angle just to check them out. Once I get them broken in and see if I like my ride height, I will decide if I want to weld on my Ruffstuff hangers any farther back and get my driveshaft lengthened and re-weld my spring perches. Something interesting I found out: one end has bushings with a 1/4" flange to fit a 3" hanger, but the other end has 1/8" flanges to fit a 2.75" hanger. So I ordered some new bushings from Barnes4wd along with their rear crossmember bumper and frame tie ins. I figure I should get some recovery points in the rear before I regret it, and cover up my ugly crossmember. I think someone ripped a bumper off of it once upon a time.
