Re: The Doc & Kim 69 build

Looks like it’s going to be a serious handler with those suspension mods and nice work on the brake lines

Re: The Doc & Kim 69 build

I tried the "Pypes" 2.5" duals kit designed for our trucks and had to return it because I have the same trailing arm crossmember. These 2 systems (Flo-Master and Pypes) are intended to run underneath the the factory trailing arm crossmember. The only solution I could find was to buy a builders kit and route it where I needed it to go, not too bad a job and actually cheaper as well. If I can find some pics I'll PM them to you.

Re: The Doc & Kim 69 build

This is what I did to get around the problem of the Pypes 2.5" kit not going through the crossmember. It is a builders kit from Summit, and it was about half the price of the kit that as "designed" for the truck. Not raggin' on the kit at all, it just didn't work with a lowered truck.

I made it. It looks good but needs more structure added to it. It kinda lets the tail of the transmission bounce too much. I plan on getting it fixed soon.

Re: The Doc & Kim 69 build

live learn and pay for my mistakes but thanks to Grumpy Im comfy ( that rhymes ) with the drive shaft position of the yoke what a difference an inch makes size does matter...... 2nd pic short by an inch 3rd pic is correct amount of yoke in the tail shaft all that being said between my lack of knowledge and the D-shaft shop balancing fee new spicer u joints cause the shop dosent like Moog I could have had a new one built from scratch): waiting on some SS exhaust parts to modify exhaust and looking at the degree of angle of tale shaft and pinion angle ill buy a protractor and use it one time ....on the bright side no vibration and ill have a protractor in my toll box good news HF there no more than 5 bucks

Re: The Doc & Kim 69 build

Looking good sir! Tell us about your drive shaft... who did it... what material did you use... where did you buy it... how much dinero...??? You don't need to explain why.
