Thanks for the compliment. I had them made from oil-impregnated bronze in an effort to make them "self-lubricating". I also put some synthetic grease on them during assembly for good measure and to help hold them in place. I am not expecting them to be a wear item based on the truck's limited use (i.e. not a daily driver), but I will keep on eye on them when I go to grease the trailing arm end joint.

So I measured the brackets from No Limit I have and they are 2-5/8" (plus or minus 25 thousandths) wide from inside edge to inside edge.

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

Hey @robnolimit it was no big deal. I had a friend with a porto-power help me spread them the 1/16 or 1/8 inch I needed to get them in. I appreciate it though!

We could have 1) increased neg. camber, 2) added more positive caster, 3) added some toe-out, but we were trying to keep it in very street friendly trim. Also, we were having too much fun to get real serious. The truck handled great, and drives smoother and more predictable than ever. Cory did finish 2nd in the truck class - first was a supercharged Trail Blazer SS - hard to beat the ABS and traction control. With some driving under his belt now, Cory is eyeing a WideRide IFS to replace the current set up. If you are interested in the Hotchkis TVS components and brakes, it is now for sale.
What wheel and tire size and backspace on this truck? I love the look and want that setup for my 70

Re: No Limit Trailing Arm Rear Suspension

@robnolimit

So, the rest of the kit went on fine,and looks great. I went ahead and ordered your C-notch kit so that will be the next step for me,as I installed 2inch blocks with the kit,just like you guys did on your shop Truck. One more question though.

Did you guys have to add a shim or use angled lowering blocks? I'm really not digging the driveshaft angle coming from the rear...
