Re: How about some pics of Static dropped 60-66

first debut... world of wheels milwaukee in a couple days.

drop spindles in front, bars cranked, 4" springs and spacers in back. Rides like a Cadillac.

Probably drop it another 1/2" just for grins

Re: How about some pics of Static dropped 60-66

65 short fleet
Front-2.5 drop spindles, 1 1/4 loop cut from spring. Bumpstops removed.
Rear-Jeep TJ springs, 2" blocks
15x6 front wheels with 215 or 225 75 15s cant remember
15x8 rear wheels with 255 70 15s

If it woulda been 2" lower all around woulda been perfect to me..

Re: How about some pics of Static dropped 60-66

It has 1.5" spacers in the rear, but they're milled to correct pinion angle

Thanks... It's been a huge amount of work. Rolled into the garage Christmas morning a dented up farm truck with cut coils in primer with a mexican blanket seat.. Rolls into WOW show tomorrow.... After that I'll post a build write up.
