Re: How about some pics of lowered long beds

Mike I will send u a link for the half moon headlight covers . They were only 9 bucks online. Dash if you mean suspension, I used ECE components 3.5 inch drop in the front with 2.5 spindles and 1 inch springs. The rear is 5 inches accomplished by 4 inch springs, shocks, relocators, and super trak bar. I have 17 X 8 on the front with 235/60/17 and 17 x 10 on the rear with 275/60/17 and 1/4" spacers.

Re: How about some pics of lowered long beds

I have a 67 chevy c10 longbed with the small hump inside cab. I want to drop the front 3" and the rear 5"-6". I will be dropping in a 350/350. Will this work or will the trans hit the hump?

You'll be fine. My small hump cab on a bagged stance didn't have any clearance issues...the only time you have to look out for clearance is if you are raising the crossmember/sectioning it

Re: How about some pics of lowered long beds

Here is the Circuit Rider...
4 1/2" front drop and a 6" rear drop with 16x8" TT II's rims. Although in a couple months I am either going to replace the fronts with 15x7's TT II's or go 15" TT II wheels all four corners.

Re: How about some pics of lowered long beds

Here is my sexy truck. I like this pic cause it makes it look really low. Bags with schrader valves and dropped spindles.



As I drove it home. She buffed out pretty good.

Re: How about some pics of lowered long beds

Dang I'm jealous of all you guys with 5-6 lug half ton's. I found a set of dropped spindles for an 8 lug 3/4 ton on ebay- but I'm a little nervous about buying cheap suspension parts from ebay...
