    I have a complete new suspension in mine. Springs, shackles everything. I checked the frame for square when it was stripped, and set the shackles to the book. I noticed after the first time out, it looked like it was leaning. I can't remember which side. I measured and it was. About 1/2" low on one side. After I drove it about 16 miles recently on the back roads to a show, it wasn't leaning anymore. I think it takes them a while to "settle in".

    Now I was thinking about your comment "but damn now what do i got to do with time, ". I think pick a few of the matching era long guns and go to the range for a "mill" with the 1950 era toys!

    I THOROUGHLY CHECKED SHACKLES AND SPRINGS, AND MAGOO LOOKS LIKE IT IS LEANING LEFT?? ABOUT A INCH... HAVE NOT DRIVEN OVER ROUGH TERRAIN BUT WILL DO (HAVE NOT DRIVEN IN 4WD YET). MIGHT GO ONTO CAMP LEJEUNE AND DRIVE OVER THE MANY MANY ROADS AND GET SOME GOOD BOUNCES. DID THE TAPE MEASURE THING AND CURIOUS, JUST MIGHT NOT BE SETTLED HAVE ONLY DRIVEN ON HARD SURFACES YET AND HAVE NOT DRIVEN OVER ANY GOOD "BUMPS" ALL THE RAILROAD CROSSINGS AND SUCH I SLOW DOWN.MIGHT HAVE TO BUMP HIM A BIT??
    ( I WON THE INAUGURAL CMP/NRA SNIPER MATCH IN 2011 WITH THE 1903A4, THIS IS A ORIGINAL WITH THE OLD LYMAN ALASKAN SCOPE, HAD A GUY REFURBISH IT) The course of fire was 10 rounds a 300 yards target comes up for 10 seconds and you shoot then it drips for 10 seconds and comes up again for another 10. then move to 600 and repeat. shot a 200 with 19x's, last round came 1.4" out of x ring to left, was positive it had gone into same hole but wth 1942 springfield shooting 168 grain match ammo. no alibis for any reason got the very first gold medal
