Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

Seriously considering selling all the gravel I've scraped up with it and bagging it with the proceeds.

Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

Before (bottom) and After (top) with 2.5" drop spindles in front, 3" lowering springs in rear, fresh shocks all around and a sbc350/th400 swap. Only took me about 2 years!

New tires are same outside diameter, wheels went from 15" to 17"

Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

Added some new wheels the other day, thought id update this. 5/7 drop with 20x8 and 20x9.5 with P245/40ZR20 and P285/35ZR20 Bfgoodrich sport comps. There are more pictures in my build thread. I had to add wheel spacers to the rear to get them off the inside of bed. I like the new look though.

Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

Fastest32 I like the stance of your truck here just posted this in an other thread also

I read somewhere on this site or thread the 1.5 coils cut would give you 4 inch drop on a 64-66. doing my 64 tore front end apart and realize the spring have a pocket or are indexed at both ends. to me you could take one coil and it would fit right. how much drop does that give? I like what I see of 63 & 64 Bowties !.5 cut and chevelle springs in the rear and was thinking something similar as I have some station wagon rear springs w air bags or chevelle springs . help want to cut my front springs and put front back together next few days. ( also going to belltech shocks for a dropped truck ) thanks Joel

If you cut 1.5 coils I guess just index the top and let the bottom be where it comes out ? more I read the more people I see do this (no problems ? ) with jeep or A body springs in the rear. ( Yea I am cheep lol )

True, it is low, and it probably won't be that low in the front. I'll be running exhaust manifolds, so there's no worry about headers hitting the pavement.

I have a 62 chevy coil converted on the front with about the same drop. Do you have any issues with the 255s up front?
