    Well thank you very much. I was indeed proud of myself. My lug of a body is a bit sore this morning haha.

    What you say makes sense - if you notice on my photos, theres a blue film on the studs which I presume is blue thread lock.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks - I'l see what I can do.
    But which shackles do you mean?
    Right now the stand is under the CV joint - which is akin to placing it directly under U bolt that holds the leaves.

    day 2:

    to get rid of the creaking : sprayed teflon lubricant between leaf springs & bushings

    used chemical guys nonsense all purpose cleaner to clean rims and tires

    the photos below are just cleaned tires
    no dressing

    the chemical guys product is not too bad
    but its not strong enough
    if I rubbed my finger hard - some grime comes off

    but good enough to add some tire polish (chemical guys VRP dressing)

    I'm only using chemical guys because thats what was quickly accessible to me

    later this afternoon i'll dress the wheels

    where the leaf springs attach at the rear to the frame. I’ve used that area to lift the truck with a jack. You can use the frame rails if you have really tall jack stands. If lifted from the frame you will get full leaf spring drop. 627BC716-AB23-4375-9A82-7DADDD08EEC6.jpeg

    Finally had time to mess around with the upfitter wiring that’s been driving me nuts. Pinned the pass through wires and 6 ground wires. On the other side of the plug I pinned 6 quick disconnect connectors. Makes it a little easier and cleaner. Probably a million better ways to do it but this is what I can up with.
    Also, the plug had a Christmas tree on it so I removed it and clipped into the fuse box cover. There is a empty retainer. Still have to finish wrapping up the wire.
