Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Just picked this 93 GMC up today. Sold my 66 back to my dad a while back then realized how much I actually need a truck...been hauling ladders and jacks and everything in between in my Toyota Yaris. Not sure how much it's lowered but there's a c notch and flip kit in the rear so I'm thinking it's about 5/7. It's just a work truck but it cleaned up pretty good

I'd say 4/6. Look at the shackles and hangers. If they're stock and there are no drop blocks added, then it's only 6" in the rear.

Looks worthy of putting around in! I know what you mean about needing a truck as well. Glad to see you on this side of the forum.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Yes on the wheels. American racing torq thrust, 20 x 8's. Tire size is 265/50/r20. They had a tendency to rub a little when hitting a dip. Then added some front variable rate springs, with bilstein shocks. Very rarely hits now. As far as pics, here's a before shot. With lots of buffing and cleaning, I think the ole truck turned out pretty decent. The lowering kit is from rough country. 2" drop spindles, 4" rear drop. We are a dealer for them, so I can get some hook ups

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Truck looks great! I've been wanting those wheels but everyone says they won't work with a drop... do you know what the back space Is on them? I want to run the 20x8 front and 20x10 rear 2/4 drop. .

I just love those wheels on these trucks

So you're not staggered? Do you know the backspace? I bet a 255/45r20 on the front would've cleared just fine.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

I thought about the 45 series, but worried about ride. I should've got them anyway. Not sure on the backspacing. I just called our wheel supplier and told him what I was looking for. I didn't want to stagger, because I like to rotate and get longer tire life. Thanks to all

Good lookin truck! That's the same setup I've got, what shocks are you using front and rear, do you have part numbers? What is your rear set up? Flip kit with shock extenders?
