The axle shouldn't move at all this makes me think the radius arm bushings are bad, allowing the axle to move forward when the truck is in reverse. Making the front end sag even worse and would most definitely screw with the alignment.

darthice is starting off with a positive reputation.
it isnt moving forward at all the kinetic energy forcing the weight on the front end down upon backing up it doesnt go back up due to the springs I know the bushings are alright because i just put them in they are brand new and torqued to spec

That's good to know. The original poster won't know though. This thread was started 12 years ago. Again thanks for the info. I'm going to use the diesel springs since I plan on raising the rear end another 2 or 3 so that's exactly what I need to know.
