Thanks for the compliment. I had them made from oil-impregnated bronze in an effort to make them "self-lubricating". I also put some synthetic grease on them during assembly for good measure and to help hold them in place. I am not expecting them to be a wear item based on the truck's limited use (i.e. not a daily driver), but I will keep on eye on them when I go to grease the trailing arm end joint.

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

Hey @robnolimit it was no big deal. I had a friend with a porto-power help me spread them the 1/16 or 1/8 inch I needed to get them in. I appreciate it though!

We could have 1) increased neg. camber, 2) added more positive caster, 3) added some toe-out, but we were trying to keep it in very street friendly trim. Also, we were having too much fun to get real serious. The truck handled great, and drives smoother and more predictable than ever. Cory did finish 2nd in the truck class - first was a supercharged Trail Blazer SS - hard to beat the ABS and traction control. With some driving under his belt now, Cory is eyeing a WideRide IFS to replace the current set up. If you are interested in the Hotchkis TVS components and brakes, it is now for sale.
What wheel and tire size and backspace on this truck? I love the look and want that setup for my 70

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

@robnolimit

So, the rest of the kit went on fine,and looks great. I went ahead and ordered your C-notch kit so that will be the next step for me,as I installed 2inch blocks with the kit,just like you guys did on your shop Truck. One more question though.

Did you guys have to add a shim or use angled lowering blocks? I'm really not digging the driveshaft angle coming from the rear...

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

Hello guys,

We've updated some of our instructions for some of our kits to make all of our products more understandable and user friendly.

In addition to the Trailing Arm Kit we also offer the 63-72 Panhard Bar kit and 63-72 Shock Relocation Kit separately to fit the original trailing arms and frame. For those interested here they are, they will also be available on the website shortly.

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

17 5/16" measurement from rear of frame on the No Limit shock relocation kit looks like it's for a short bed. Anyone know the measurement for a longbed? Unfortunately my '71 seems to be one of the few without the 5/8" hole punched from the factory. And the given measurement puts it way too far back.

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

Long beds are 20” longer, 12” in front of wheels, 8” behind. Based on that, 25 5/16” should put you where you need to be

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

The thread that never dies!!! I installed the trailing arm kit on my 71 Blazer. What do you do about the coil over spring being loose when you jack up the vehicle?

Assuming you’ve got the ride height set where you want it, you could:

- add a lowering block between the trailing arm and axle
- move the upper coilover mount up
- use a shorter coilover shock body
- haul a couple hundred pounds of gravel

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

Gringoloco, you have had some nice rides! This is what I have so far. I think that a shorter shock is the best option. I plan on lowering it as far as I can without floor/frame interference.

I recommend that you wait until the body is on. Looks good. BTW, kinda odd to see a SBC in a build now a days. Like it!

Sad statement right there. I'm all about the technological advancements of the LS platform, but the SBC is always a solid choice.

Gringoloco is using a Porterbuilt rear set-up which is why the C/O's are behind the axle.

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

The body is on the frame now. Sadly, I've been doing this project for 28 years. When I started, dropped spindles from a 73 and cut coils was the best you could do! I'm glad I waited. Today I would have done a LS motor. The SBC should get the job done though, especially with a 4 speed tranny.

The images above from NoLimit are the shock relocation kit which places the shocks behind the axle when using the stock Truck Arms & coil springs. The No Limit coil-over set-up puts the C/O's in front of the axle about where the factory coils would be but outboard of the frame & T/A.
