Here is my 73. Front has 3" spindles, 1" springs with a half coil cut. Rear is a flip kit with 2" drop shackle. No clearance issues or modified body panels.

Love the truck and the stance. That's exactly the hardware I ordered, minus the shackle. But after seeing yours I may have to buy the shackle too.

what header setup are you.running? Or are they manifolds? Reason I ask is I ordered the same lowering setup you have, and was wondering if my long tubes are gona work. I'm seriously doubting it, by looking at your pic.

Re: static dropped square bodies with 15s

Could you guys spare me a lil advise? the djm spindles are a good choice for a half ton c10 cause of the price.. i was wandering if 5 inch flip kit in the rear is excessive. im also wandering what cutting does to your coils? wouldnt that make handling the truck different? Are you using after market or stock A arms?
