Re: 68 gmc/c4

Great another GMC! Looks like you're off to a good start. I'm along for the ride and originally from Chula Vista. Good luck with it.

what's a C4 chassis? I'm ignorant.

Re: 68 gmc/c4

We're taking C4 corvette suspension parts and installing them on to a C10 chassis! We're trying to develop something more along the lines of performance rather than airbag and we're trying to make it to where somebody can just both their cab in bed onto the chassis without any Sheetmetal fabrication!

Re: 68 gmc/c4

I have your trucks brother, and you are doing exactly what I plan to do to my 68 GMC. Are you planning on doing a suspension kit? Also who did your front cross member?

What a great project. Can't wait to see the outcome!

Re: 68 gmc/c4

I'm in. Cool concept. It would be nice to see a suspension setup like this available as you are planning.

Did you guys build the front cross member? If not where did you source it from?

I can't believe just how similar these two trucks are! LOL!!
