Re: Best "Rake/Stance" for a Hot Rodded 60-66 C10?

A lot of guys build those pre-runners that have more height in the front than the rear. Cool for what they are, I guess. There was a guy here on the board that built one like that not too long ago I think.

Lot's of great trucks guys. They're giving me plenty to ponder on the perfect stance for a hot rod!

Re: Best "Rake/Stance" for a Hot Rodded 60-66 C10?

It's tough to give you a number.
I can say at least 4.5 up front but probably more.
I was running a sectioned crossmember @ 1.5 inches and 3 inch belltech spindles.

But it is bagged.

The rear is bagged with a 1 inch block under the diff.

I just set it where it looked good to me!!!!

The driveway is slanted and the rear is up a little more than the front. i have 4" CPP drop springs in the rear (with no wieght in the back at all) the front has 2"CPP drop springs,2 1/2" drop spindles, and POL tubular UCA/LCA

also in this pic there is no tailgate or bed floor installed so the rear is up a little more than normal

This is what think of when I hear "hot rod stance". It looks like a hot rod!
