66 Mercury 1/2 Ton, 466, 550-600 H.P. Going to run a C-6, 9", CalTraks, and a Line lock, haven't decided on a trans. brake yet

What are you guys running for leaf springs? Mono leafs? Leaf packs? Do you run the conventional rear shackle? Axle over or under leaf spring? Never built a truck before, not sure where to go on this budget race truck.

How low do you want the truck to sit? If it were mine, spring under axle, mono-leaf with sliders on the rear, ladder bars and 50-50 shocks with a real light coil-over spring.

Thanks for your help, I'm new to the game.

I want the truck to sit high enough to clear a wider drag slick... Right now with 31x10.5-15's the tires tuck into the wheel well some.

Rear sliders? Haven't seen that. Got any info?
