Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

I would like to see pics of everyone static drops no matter how radical or ghetto they are. I'm thinking about buying a 5/7 drop kit from a supplier, but wanted to see one on an actual bodystyle like ours first. All I get is pics of 67-72 trucks. Also, can you guys shoot me in good directions for kits. All I have found is one supplier for the 5/7" drop. Thanks.
It would be cool if you guys had before and after too.

Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

What was the setup in the second picture? The third picture - what did you do? Put the rear back to stock and slam the front? Are those 20's?

Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

here is my 66.. REAR: Custom boxed and welded c-notch 5 inch drop springs/drop shocks/custom panhard bar with custom mounts/ 3 inch blocks.. Total of 8 inch static in the rear.. Going to put in 250 pounds of lead on my frame for a total of 9 in rear.. FRONT: 2 inch drop coil.. (I think) somewhere between 2 and 3 in the front..

Drives?? Like butter.. power steering and disc brakes.. Stop, steers and goes down the road like a cadi. Love it.. Some done by me and the rest by Drop Shop in Portland.

Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

Rear u bolts and blocks can be made for about 40-60 bucks. I have mine made at 11 inches. That allows for a 3 inch block. I also have 4 inch lowered coils in rear and cut front coils.

Chevytrucknut - Man the wheels on both of your trucks is what ive been searching for. Where do I get a set? The wheels on the black truck look killer. Do you have a side shot of the orange truck? I like the centers on it.

Jeep coils in back. 1" drop springs up front. Both found on Craigslist for less than $50 for them both. Currently she is blown appart and will go back together with bags.

I have NO problems down the freeway.. Like I said, it drives like a Cadi.. Very smooth and never scrapes or bottoms out.. I have owned several of these 63-72 chevy trucks..This is how we do it and keep the best ride... My rear fender is just under 21 inches off the ground..

Now for my wheels.. They are stock steel 15 inch wheels off of a 71 impala. Then I bought 3 1/8 bullet center caps off of ebay for $20

Drop coils.. Just start looking around.. Several companies make them.. They are all over Ebay.. Some times if you type in 67-72 it makes them easier to find..

Like chevytrucknut said.. You can make your rear 3 inch blocks easy.. I have a guy here in Portland that makes the steel blocks for $10 and then the Makes the u-bolts for around $40.. Easy way to keep your stock ride and budget good.. I could have ya a set made and shipped if you want..
