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.

Re: Rottenwood Garages C50 Hauler project about to begin!

Nice score! Do you have the LQ4 and the 4L80e on that Handy motorcycle lift? How sturdy does it sit up there? I have one myself but thought it might get a little wobbly when lifting it up. I guess with the right supports under the oil pan and trans it could work out well like you have it.

Re: Rottenwood Garages C50 Hauler project about to begin!

I can image that's quite a feeling running that truck along down the hiway hauling your coupe on the deck. Not just knowing how cool it will look to all who see (that like that sort of thing), but your experience sitting in that seat holding that wheel hearing that engine, looking over that hood.
