Are those 19.5's or 17.5" wheels? , More info and pics of your rig please
19.5's on a 67 K2500. My friends want me to leave it as is and would consider that if the work wasn't so sloppy. will post some more pics of this front end set up this week when I get time.

After you take it out, you're going to slap yourself on the forehead and say... "Dang, I was already setup for a trailer hitch in the front!!!"

Choices Choices! If you do go with the OEM bumper. Mount the bumper on the horns and study it. Square the frame and horns so the bumper sits straight and square, then walk the frame(or horns) back for depth with your final cut and grind. No need to beat the frame horns into submission once you weld.

May have found some frame horns. Here are pictures of rear shackle of front spring, and how it is block lifted in back.

Re: Lift Help for 4x4 GMC

o.k. rear shackle for the front springs looks stock .

the front only looks like it was lowered then to gain lift . kind of stupid i think for the reasons i said on front axle caster being way off . but anyway .....

try back to stock then go from there .

like i said before take measurements so you have height reference info before so after you know what you need to regain that height .

Love the look of the 19.5's.
Looking forward to seeing more pictures.
