Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

Front, 2" drop springs and 2.5" drop spindles. The rear is 6" drop springs. In the future I plan to drop the front another inch and the rear 2 more inches.

The hubcaps on my truck are the "Hollywood Flipper" caps. you can get 'em from Moon.

Hey badbowtie, what has been done to your truck to get so low static?

Use some Comet or Ajax and a scrub brush...the whites will brighten up.

Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

Screw scrubbing your whitewalls!!! That's too much work! Just get some Westley's Bleche white. Spray it on, let it sit for about 30 seconds and rinse. Nothing gets whites whiter.

Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

They look like the Derby caps. Hey, Hard luck, what size bullet cones are those and where'd ya get 'em? I need some for the smoothies on my truck. I don't want to run the baby moon caps or the bullets. I like the exposed lug nuts so I just want a set of cones.

Yeah, that stuff works good too. I just never seem to have any. We always have house cleaning supplies though...
