Re: static drop pics

Thanks for the comment. Don't have any more pics at this time, it's at my buddy's shop where we are installing the motor. Tires are 245/40/20 and 295/35/20

Edit. I have these, but in this set the 2" blocks aren't installed in the rear.

So does it have a motor in it in the pics?

Re: static drop pics



4.5/6 from ECE

20x8.5
20x10

I would love to go an extra inch all the way around to really set off the looks but I think it will be a mistake for as much as I drive the truck. It rides really nice right now and I have only scrubbed the inner fenders once on a big freeway bump and only hit the axel on the frame twice going over train tracks.

Not to mention I am going to add LT headers and I think I will end up dragging the collectors.

You have to trim the lower a-arms.
(gind a small amount off the lower a-arm lip)

Mine has 3" drop springs and 2.5" drop spindles up front.
6" rear drop spring with a 1.5" lowering block.

You nailed the stance! Looks Perfect!!! Thats exactly how I want mine to look but green.
How bad does the tires scrub?
How did you do the 5 lug swap on the rear? conversion axles or swap to newer housing?
What brand are the parts you used? ECE? CPP?
Sorry for all questions.

Cool Re: How about some pics of Static Dropped C-10's

Here is mine.

3" up front with coils and 4" out back with coils and added air bags inside springs to make it ride better.
Wheels are 20" all around. 8 1/2" wide fronts, 10" out back with a 3/8" spacer.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
