Re: 1971 c10 stepside

285/35/22 on a stepper? I don't know man.. You leaving the stock fender wells, and/or mini tubs in the rear?

Hoping I'm wrong. Do you have the early rear end? 22x9 - 5"BS?

What are the height / width specs on the rear tires? You're probably going to need to loose the support braces at least and/ or trim the fender lip a bit.

Again, not meaning it negatively at all. I know a 265/40/22 - 5" BS with the early rear end requires trimming to fit. Assuming you're bagging the truck (?)

Re: 1971 c10 stepside

thanks, not my first choice for wheels but the had the matte look i was looking for since i already have billet intros on my other ride, i wanted something different , as for the tire size i did some research and the 285 are 700 thousands wider than the 265 so that makes it a 350 thousands split between inner outter wall which its about 11/32 of an inch so if i have to trim it will be minimal , im hoping , thanks again

Re: 1971 c10 stepside

Great progress.
I do have a concern.
I think you have your upper a-arms on the wrong side.
This appears to be the "passenger side" upper a-arm mounted on the "drivers side".

Re: 1971 c10 stepside

I might be the picture hiding it, but on the lower control arm. There should be a bracket to the front in the middle of the tube for the sway bar link. I didn't see it in the picture so I was just wanting to make sure.

Great progress by the way.

Re: 1971 c10 stepside

you are right, they sent some extra brackets in case i want to install in the future , they only welded the ones to the rear for the shocks ,
