Bob,I have a drawing David at Southern Oregon Diesel gave me several years ago showing the way he did it .
When I get through with my wifes flooring project I will try and locate it for you.
It is a simple drawing showing a 6in round bag on each end of the torque arms close to the very end near the tube where you remove the bump stop and reinforce the tubing above it and the bag sitting on a 1/2 in x 8 in square plate on the top and bottom.
You can make it manual or automatic level.The automatic just use a leveling valve from a truck good luck

Manny& Darline
We will sure do just that when we get up to date with how to do things, As with all things new it takes time and a few setbacks to learn.
As for our Eagle she is an 1968 05 with 8v92/740 Allison. As with all of us it's never done !!!
Thanks for the hello and please stay in touch
