    I bought Keith's Axle Locater kit and Leaf Spring Shackle Kit and couldn't be happier. The Leaf Spring Shackle kit was a dramatic improvement over my earlier mistake of using polyurethane bushings. I just assumed the rough ride was the leafs, but once I installed Keith's kit, my 70 Camaro has a totally different feel to it. No more harshness. The shocks can do their job now. I found out the poly bushings were binding real bad and preventing the suspension from doing its job. The installation of Keith's kit was easy and without issue.

    The axle locater was another great item. I installed them on a new Strange Engineering S60 with leaf mounts. The mounts from Strange were not quite as long as stock so I had to weld a 1/4" piece of flat iron at the end of each axle locator plate to take up the gap, but that was simple. I would not have had to do anything for a stock 10 or 12 bolt. The rear assembly dropped right onto the leafs and now they are set right where they belong.

    Thanks Keith! It's not often I get parts that fit so good as yours...installing your stuff was a breath of fresh air and they work great. Another set of issues solved!

    I have the same Delrin shackle kit and axle locator kit and was very pleased with the install and quality. I can't wait to actually see how the shackle kit performs.
