this tuck on a 5/8 drop with 20s looks real nice.
does this require modification of the fender wells?

if so can you send some pictures of what was needed?

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

I just got my 1997 GMC SCSB all cleaned up and lowered on some Billet Specialties wheels! I've wanted this truck since I was 11! So stoked on it!

It's a 5/6 drop from Crown Suspension and the wheels are 20x8.5 front and 20x10 rear.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Clean truck. Must be a repaint since it's not showing spots where the paint lifted from the metal. White trucks seem to be the most common w/the issue.

It's actually mostly factory paint. It's got some chips and scratches, but overall it's in very good shape. I did 2000 grit wet sand the whole truck and buffed it out. The only thing that's not factory paint is the tailgate. The factory one was stolen before I owned it and they repainted one off a different truck.

Same thing I was going to ask, regarding wheel backspacing. Also, do the Crown Suspension spindles push the wheels out like Belltech?

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

Hey guys, I just joined. Here's my '89 Sierra, 4.3 tbi, manual 2wd. I picked it up last may and have steadily been changing it. Did the drop in December. djm 4/6 with a flip kit and notch in the rear, coils and lower control arms up front. Wheels are 20x8.5 front and back, just because I wasn't too concerned with having wide tires in the rear since the 4.3's are pretty underpowered anyway. Still a long list of things to do with it, but it's getting shorter every week.

Re: Show lowered 88-98 trucks

I just finished my 5/7 drop using all Belltech stuff, also replaced all front end parts, control arm bushings and I just need to make a decision on wheels. I am going with 20" but can't decide on polished aluminum, grey or black.

I think the truck looks perfect the way it is with the stock wheels. Fantastic truck.

Really well actually. A lot better than most people would think a lowered truck would.
The spring rate isn't overly aggressive and the rebound adjustment in each shock really gives you the ability to fine tune the ride quality.
Its nice being able to dial in the ride using that adjustment instead of just settling with whatever comes out of the box with other kits.
Im really happy with the way it turned out.
