3/4 dropping my 93 6lug C2500

Hey guys,

I'm going to 3/4 drop my 93 C2500 "6lug" single cab long bed I recently acquired.

Has anyone done this to a 6lug 2500? Post pics of your drop & advise if you ran into any issues. I am going to order parts for a C1500. From what I have read and observed this truck is basically a 1500 with a big 14bolt rear end/driveshaft & heavier leafs. Here she is,.. 113k mile, one owner granny truck & clean as a whistle!!

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Thanks guys! I like it.

2 tone. C2500hd 8 lug. Rclb. Camper shell.

However, not lowered.

2500 series 3-4" drop spindles are the way to go apparently, although difficult to find.

This is stock. 16" wheels, had spring pack in rear. Gives 2" of rake.

Looks great! Thanks for sharing. After putting 2" shackles on mine it's got 1" of rake. Looks good. I'll post a pic Monday. I'm thinking about just going 2/4 now. I don't want a lowrider just a nice stance.
