Re: stance of my 58

Got the 58 dropped down a couple more inches.I still have another 3" I can use,but ran out of adjustment on the shocks.I'm going to take it to the muffler shop Monday and get that done.I will be waiting on the alignment,until spring.I needed to get the rear roll pan in place (it still needs work) but front roll pan is done.I you guy said I need to get the rest of the weight in the rear of truck,might need to add a little more,every time I touch the gas tires spin

Re: stance of my 58

My opinion, I think it looks good right where you have it.

Re: stance of my 58

Im with ricky, looks good where it is now. kinda hard to tell if it is level or not, parallel to the ground that is, just because there is shadow next to the dark paint. anyway, looks good.
what do you have for rear suspension? could you set it up better for traction so you load the weight of the truck onto the wheels when you accelerate?
