Re: static dropped square bodies with 15s

2/4 drop (springs and shackles) w/ 275/60/15 all around. I think I need to put OG springs back on and get 3" spindles.

Flip kit in the rear. 3" spindles and 1" coils in the front. All belltech.
15 x7 factory alloys with 235/75/15s.
The front needs to come down some more.

Re: static dropped square bodies with 15s

My clear coat peeling peach! Current build project. It has 2.5 spindles and 1 coil cut, and rear flip. 15x8 up front and 15x10 in the rear. Installing a 5.3/4L80E with 76mm turbo and retaining the A/C. Going to wait until all of the weight is back on the front end before deciding whether or not more cutting of the front spring will be required.

Re: static dropped square bodies with 15s

1979 Big 10 Dropped on stocks, awaiting 20" Detroit steel.
The drop in case others want to know....
Western chassis 2.5" spindles and 2" coils
Belltech rear flip kit, didn't use c notch yet
Belltech drop shocks 4" and 6"

Got 4.5" out of the front, and I think 6.25" from rear. There is about 2" between the rear axel and frame still. And truck is leveled at 26.5" to the center of each fender well. Stock 15x8 with 255/75-15 truck turns but rubs at full lock. I would not recommend 15" with drop spindles as I had to cut the balance weight off the back of the rims because new spindle steering rod mount is about 1/8" from touching the inner rim lip.

Special order thru Newstalgia and you can just about any backspacing you want. Not too expensive either.

Very nice trucks, glad to see some running around that don't have the 20's and 22's on them.

Re: static dropped square bodies with 15s

SWB85, I really like the look of your 4/4 drop and may have to get 2" spindles to go along with my 2" springs!

Does anyone make a 2" spindle???

Re: static dropped square bodies with 15s
