Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

In the front what is the first thing that makes contact so that it will not go any lower?

and it has a vent hose on the left front side of the valve cover.
the engine compartment wiring and dash wiring is totally trashed
so it won't even yard drive yet .
I just wanted it to look cool until I get a chance to start on it.
I picked up a complete 79 front 5 lug cross member and the 5 lug rear with highway gears. I got 2 eight inch 5 lug truck rallys for the back ,
now I want to find 2 seven inch 5 lug truck rallys for the front
I need to pancake the 79 cross member before I put it in and get some C notches
before I put some springs in it.

the bump stops are the first thing that hits with no front springs in it.
so I removed them now the lower a arms are sitting tight against the cross member.
it has stock spindles on it and the cross member is about a inch or 2 off the ground now.
in the back the stock un cut frame rails are laying on the rear axel housing .

I need to pan cake the front cross member 2 inches and put C notches in the back
so I can put some short springs in it to get some working suspension .
its going to be a 6cyl 5spd .

Re: Post Pics of your Static Drops!!

That is interesting I figured that the cross member hitting the ground would be the first thing to bottom out (excluding the bump stops of course). Would using tubular lower A-arms keep them from bottoming out first and allow you to go lower so that the front cross member makes contact with the ground?

CPP 2.5" drop spindles with 3" springs in front and 5" Springs with 2" blocks out back. Tires are 275/50 I think all around but switching to a 255/60 or so in the front. So that should bring it down a tiny bit more.

Do you have any rubbing issues in the front when turning?

Forgive my dumb question but what are transport wheels?? I am assuming the wheels that high end vehicles have on them when in transport? Can they be used on a daily driver? They DO look awesome.

Transports are a 22" stealie/smoothy made by gm. They can be ordered with the same bolt pattern as the stock 15" wheels. Commonly used on vehicles that are "slammed".

Nice set up!

How does it drive? Are you running a c-notch, shock relocator, flip kit, or anything of that nature?
