Mine has two leafs in the back and two coils chopped in the front. Not the best method but the previous owner took it upon himself to lower it this way.

The blue truck is a buddy of mine. I helped him build it a few years ago. It's a 1982 Silvarado with a 355/TH350 drivetrain.
It's a 4or5/6 drop 2.5 spindles/cut 1/2 coil and flip in rear
The wheels are repro car rallye wheels with corvette caps and trim rings.
15x8 front with 275/50/15 BFG Radial T/A
15x10 rear with 295/60/15 BFG Radial T/A
The color we got off of a mid 90's truck at the Ford dealer we work at.

That blue truck, and yours look killer. That's about the level of lowered that I'm going for. Thanks for the info.
