1994 truck drop and motor swap

For right now I am only doing a 5.3 swap with a cam... Maybe procharger down the road....
I did a 4/6 drop with flip kit in the rear and control arms and springs up front
I order a set of coys c-57 wheels 22 in the rear and 20 up front... On 265/35/22 and 255/35/20
I am going shave all handles and repaint black....
For the intreior I am going to get the seat redone in dark red....I installed the middle jump seat/ console from a 03 avalanche ( because my truck has only to Captian seats and no console)
I want to upgrade the brake set up was thinking about a ls1 style set up for front and rear.... I been looking to see if anyone else has tried this but no info comes up when I do the search

My first step was the suspension and stance now that this part is about complete I am moving to the swap.... Will post pics as I go
ect....

Re: 1994 truck drop and motor swap

Great start, the Coys look good on everything but Corvettes so it should be a really good look. Good luck!

Re: 1994 truck drop and motor swap

phase one is 89% done... I still have to notch the frame and get some drop shocks...
I also now have all my body mods ready to install (ie roll pan, bumper cover, shaved door kit...) Now I have to find time to install this stuff.. Also picked up the procharger... I am also working on how to get the ac brackets to work with my new procharger set up.. I will post more pics as I go....
