    They are quite simple, you will have to follow some of my old threads, or read some of the posts where we have discussed it in great detail. You will have to cut or remove the militar wrap leaf to clear the small spring hangers, and you will have to make longer shackles. The SD springs use larger fasteners so you will have to drill the hanger to 18mm or step up to 3/4" bolts. The shackles are gonna get drilled anyway, so you can go with the metric stuff or use 9/16" SAE.
    Bolt em up, and you are done.
    That easy.

    My set up on the red 74 (now its a 74, as I have since sold the 75. I had two identical trucks a coupe of years ago, and they sort of evolved into one truck) is a BDS 8" front spring pack with 2 leafs removed. Custom shackles to allow for additional travel, custom front shock mounts using 2.25" diamter smooth body shocks, 17" stroke.
    Rear is a bone stock 3500 series chebby silverado leaf pack with zero lift, stock 4 inch block and a shackle flip using stock hangers.
    Thats it, It clears 39.5" boggers. UNfortunately I do not run bump stops so my fenders take a beating and are always wrinkled.
    Works very well and has as much articulation as any other 1 ton out there. I dont see many with as much flex.
    Decent combo and rides awesome on the highway. I can set the cruise at 80 and she will stay there till it runs out of gas.
