Re: 1976 Square "Simple Green"

out of curiosity... what is a flip kit? and how does it work?

i got a 1/2 ton long bed and am hopping to lower her to the same height as yours.

Re: 1976 Square "Simple Green"

A flip kit moves the axle from under the leaf springs to on top of it. You get 5-6 inches of drop by doing this. Its an easy process that can take just a few hrs with a helper.

My C20 was that color from the factory.

I would love to restore back to that color.

Re: 1976 Square "Simple Green"

Very nice truck. I have noticed that some short bed trucks only have one fuel door mine has them on both sides. I rarely see them with only one. Is that original paint?

I haven't c-notched it yet because it doesn't hit, I have about 2 inches between the axle and the frame. if I run my spare under the bed then I will have too. I have a notch ready to install but haven't put it in yet. going to get it coated first.

I bought them here. But you have to know which panels you have. The Silverado panels like mine are different.

Yes im running a shackle as well, it still has a rake because of the bigger tire in the rear. I agree a little rake looks good, that why I used a level on the bed rail to make sure it still had a rake.
