Default Martz rear chasis install

Installastion took about 2 days. Mostly because the direction might as well been blank. Had to measure and figure a lot out on our own. Cross members were not a perfect fit either. Had to weld some metal plates up as spacers to get the cross members to be a snug fit. We pretty much then fabbed up the whole assembly with the leaf springs still on so we could get good measurements for the existing pinion angle and such. Exhaust had to be cut off as well. that really pissed me off becuse i loved the look and sound of my exhaust and now will have to change it up.
