Yea well I definatley think you should make them.. in different styles too because I'm sure people are looking for a variety of the older chevys. Suburban, Blazer, Crewcab Dually, Singlecab Dually, Crewcab, Singlecab Short Bed, Crewcab Long Bed and even just the Dually fenders themselves.. for attachment to whatever you wish. I've seen Suburbans with dually fenders and I thinkit's actually kinda cool. I would buy one I know that. Other than that, can't wait to see more progress! Lookin great so far. Oh and do you have the measurements on your frame?

so what more than 10 minutes whatever. i did this just for you and i have a tubing bender in my garage that was like 75 bucks fron northern tool n equipment. basically a harbor freight. this stuff is so easy to bend you dont need to heat it. you can do it between two hard places like a vise but thats pretty tricky. then when it was still one piece i hammered out the bend marks so it was perfectly flat, then i cut it and it warped and then i bent it back flat. here ya go
keep in mind it has a little rake in it from the factory its about 20.5 inches in lenght. not the lenght of the piece i used i dont know that.

That wouldn't fix the pinion angle. You would just be forcing against the leaf springs, Which is why he said drop the spring hanger down. It's Ok we're all learning
