Never even thought about the wrench cutting technique..�� that would have saved a lot of pissing around.

L&M Customs out of Delaware, small performance shop that has no website.

Mike (MGH is his member name) the Owner of L&M,
is the one who built the OP's (ironchef2011) 2012 R/T custom suspension and did his 6.4L Crate Motor swap.

He also re-builds enhanced boost-proof transmissions for 4G Rams
So far I think he's put almost a dozen of us on the road that are running Turbo's and Superchargers.

You wont find anything with Google, use the ramforumz seach engine

MGH's Twin Turbo Build: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=83155

Varoius transmission threads:

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=146929

I'm not sure his transmission builds are suited to NA applications though,
it would likely be overkill and his tuning that's included would need a revision for less HP/TQ.

As for the OP's truck set up it looks great, and I'm debating putting a set of those RideTech spring on my truck. I like the idea that I could lower it more if I wanted for shows, corner balance the truck, and lift the back end more if I was going to be towing/hauling. You add that setup with a simple airbag on the axle and you would have a great tow rig.

Thank black ram hemi for the info, I was losing my mind because I couldn't figure it out lol all in ever seen was l&m this and l&m that but kept coming up with nothing haha and In Deep I used a socket that barely fit wit a long extension. Got the job done but dam was it ever tricky. Could have used the proper tools but my problem was it was the long weekend everything was closed and I was impatient lol. Anyone know if a panhard bar would cause rear death sway if it was out of place? Iron chef is gonna help with my suspension parts thank god.
