91 gmc. Drop spindles

Is it normal for the wheels when turned to drag on the A frames?

I haven't looked at this truck since we lowered it a few years ago. Life got in the way.
I am re energised to finish it. I painted box and put rockers cab corners in several years ago. 10k 4.3 5spd. Want to finish and drive or sell to fund 51.

Re: 91 gmc. Drop spindles

Not sure what you mean by drag, but if you’re referring to the wheel hitting the control arm, yes. 85% of the time you have to trim the control arm front lip. I say 85% because initially I thought any lowering job would require a trim, but members here have lowered the OBS truck and not performed a trim job.

Re: 91 gmc. Drop spindles

all depends on wheel diameter and width...
