The Slosh Tubz look great. Are you planning on doing the filler panels too? They really clean things up under the hood.

Morning stranger lol. Well I have been on Mike butt about filler panels for my truck. He is in search for a 73-80 fender so he can make some. So I sit back and wait on him. And yes they do want it up nicely.

Frustrated me so much after jacking with it for 2 months and 3 sets of rear brakes that I gave up and put the 5 lug axles back in.

Re: 1976 Square "Simple Green"

A ground level pic for you all. And a little update the mild drop tubz won't work with a 8.5" drop up front. They rub on the blower motor. So testing with a 6.5 front drop thy work no issues next test will be with a 7.5" drop. Also after having to raise it well my ridetech shocks didn't fit anymore. So I had to order the HQ shocks for the height I needed well I like things that match so I had to order the rears. Man o man never ending lol. I have relayed this info to Mike so he can tell people in the future.

How are you getting these extreme static drops?
I thought a 3" spring and a 3" drop spindle was the most you could do, and still be able to align the front end?

Using 4" coils and cutting coils. Plus PB control arms 1" narrow and 1" forward and 22" wheels with the correct backspacing. It can be done if you just try it. As you can see in my pics I post. Honestly this all started with a buddy who said I couldn't do it lol. I align it on a hunter alignment machine we have here at work set at factory specs. I did have to machine some shim blocks plus add shims so I could get it aligned.

Re: 1976 Square "Simple Green"

How far is your crossmember and a-arms from the ground with a 8.5" front drop?
I remember banging a-arms on everything with a 6" front drop,...
