Pete and Jakes Viper Hair Pins keep everything aligned.Mounting the springs behind the axles gets the truck a much lower lookbut required a lot of frame fabricationand modification, like notchingthe rails, lengthening the steering arms and mounting the springperches to the batwings and also raising the motor mounts to keep the motor from rubbing the pavement.
