I don't think you can view the pics in Kieth's "Twinkie" build without being a member, but here is a link to his build thread. Rear end swap begins about post 108 or so. CLICKY

Yeah post number 108 has a really good picture of it you can see where the original holes are and how I moved the mount.

Check out the beginning of my build thread in my sig for some pics.
When swapping in 64" springs instead of 52" or 56" you need to relocate the front hanger 6" forward to keep the axle in its stock location.

excellent pictures Fred, but on the suburban it has a body mount right in the general area of where you moved the front mount forward too, just looking for a really clear pic on either side if people modded the mount or it fit and I'm just over-analyzing it. Need this truck for my small business so I can't have it down for a few weeks, and would like to knock it out in under 3 days at the most, lol....but things always pop up I know.

I took that mount out, its not even bolted to the body. I do plan on putting back it, but its just a support

oh ok, i wondered why your pics didn't match what was under my suburban lol. Although it looks like on the drivers side it did mount to the body, I'll have to double check that though.
