Re: offical lowered thread of standard cab pu, lets see them!

For the folks that have "C" notched the rear frame is there a kit you used or do you have any pic of the in progress and the finished results
How much clearance do you have between the axle and frame with springs and no bags?
I am tired of the axle bumping on the frame !!

Re: offical lowered thread of standard cab pu, lets see them!

The truck my grandson bought before Christmas is very low...

has 275/45R-20's and the spring hanger bracket will actually go up into the C section
The cross bar on the box has been cut to give rear end room

He's 19 so he thinks its cool

I am 65 and know better I am going to change the drop from 6/8 to 6/7 by moving rear spring hanger up a notch.......

LOL. No. I'm not going that far. I do have the toolbox up for sale and bed caps. Once off that will make it look better.

Thanks
