RCSB driveshaft clearance modified crossmember
I went with my original shackles which gave about 6 inch drop.
The rear came out too low/lower than front.
Had to get the Firestone airbags from SOS to bring it up to level.
Here is a picture of the Notch that is necessary for a RCSB to not bend the driveshaft.
Now I ride on 2-3 inches of air then the last 2 inches of air and springs.
We just cut it out except for the top lip, then welded tabs on both ends, then welded it back in higher. It's ugly but looked better with some new black paint. I couldn't find any pictures anywhere so hope this helps someone.
