Stance Check

When I bought my '51 panel it was full stock ride height, about 10-12 inches high. Over the last 10 months I've made many suspension mods and today I finally got started mounting the front fenders so I could visualize the results. It's now about 5 inches high at the fenders. To say I'm pleased with it's new look is an understatement!

Thanks. It's been my experience that 5" is a good compromise of lowness and practicality.

Re: Stance Check

I THOUGHT I had seen a picture from someone with their truck's front end and a soda can. Then again, maybe I'm losing my mind!!
