    Hi,
    I am in the Richardson/Dallas area
    Looking for someone to who can help with this project and has some experience. I want to be hands on as much as possible if that is ok..

    I have an 8 3/4 already installed, it has two sets of perches. I need to do the bracket relocation and widen the tubs a little.

    I am not sure how much time this really involves.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    How much clearance are you looking for ? I just did the offset shackle kit on mine and I got a 255/60/15 under there with good clearance all around and
    was very simple to do.

    I could probably get away with the offset shackles, but don't I still need to cut the perches and put a new set on?

    I just slotted the hole a bit in the shock mounts and moved it over and brought the mounts to work and had the welder re weld the elongated hole. Didn't touch the perches.
