Re: Out of the Ditch = The Rebuild Begins ('72 GMC)

I had recently installed CPP 4" HD rear drop springs to replace the standard CPP 4" drop springs. While I was in there I installed the CPP rear shock relocation brackets too. Now the truck can be used as a truck again, and still have a lowered stance. The HD drop springs make a HUGE difference over the standard drop springs as far as hauling and towing capability. The new shock brackets gave me over an inch more of shock travel as well. Complete difference!

It was a gorgeous day here in the PNW this past Monday. It was my day off and I was headed over to my stepson's place to assist him with his "1970 C20 conversion to C10 project". So I stopped out by our mailbox on the backroad we live on, and snapped a couple of pics. Still no hood on the heap yet... which makes it look kinda mean when ya see it.

Pics are of the new HD springs, Shock relocation brackets... and of course the heap...
