What's the drop on that? I'm looking at a twin to it and that's about the stance I'd like to end up with.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Nothing fancy about mine other than she is a 1988, got her in 1990 and slammed it.
Nothing special. Don't have the tonne cover on right now.

This came down 6" by a outfit that used to be in Gresham Oregon called Charley's Drop Shop.
They modified the lower A frames and not sure what was done in the back other than they had to notch the frame too.

This allowed better control of adjusting the caster and camber. She does not eat tires like the drop spindle lowered trucks. That I like !

The cross frame under the motor, 3" clearance. If the tire comes off the rim, she is on the asphalt.

Thanks Bill.

I ended up using some Monte Carlo shocks in the front and not sure in the rear which were air shocks.
I never did pull the rear springs as the overload spring needs to be changed.
We have a place up in Portland Oregon called Oregon Spring. I give them what measurements I have and they re-arch the overload spring.

I started out and was going to put a Air Lift (bag in a coil spring) setup in the rear but never did. I really need too as if your going pack anything around, she will come down and pumpkin will hit the bottom of the truck bed. Done that a few times ;-/

I remember being a little on the tipsy side heading back home from a friends house and forgot the 30mph curve. I hit it about 70mph and Everything in the cab was up against the door and window, including me. She went around that corner like she was on rails.

The front shocks were some trick gas shocks. I can't find the book on her since the move and in that book, I wrote down what shocks I used. Hope to find it but even if not, they can take those off and match them up.
She still rides like a car too.
