Hey therapy, how much drop is this in the front and rear? You mentioned spindles and springs up front but didn't say how much each was. I really like the looks of your truck!

Do you have any other pics of your truck by chance? I would love to see the front and rear suspension up close.

Great job!

I dont have any suspension pics..Has 2 inch spindles,2 inch springs with a coil cut.. Rear is a flip kit I believe that is like 5 and then the over load removed placed on top to dearch the spring to give it even more drop. Has drop shocks on all 4 corners and and a min c in the rear frame rails..This is now my Daily/Project cause I got rid of the other square got a 50 model and now got rid of that.....Im now in the process of buying everything to bag the daily grind..

Actually I do all my own work, certified welder, used to do iron work til the economy took a dive. Now I manage the Midas Auto Service in Lodi. Still might get ahold of you for some help, thanks I appreciate that. Hey what would you charge to install a cnotch like you have?

Re: How about some pics of Static Dropped C-10's

Is there anyone out there can help me out with my dilemma. I have a '85 GMC SWB. 2WD that I'm currently restoring. I want to do a static drop on my truck. The wheels that I'm gonna run are a 24x9 with a 255/30/24 in the front and a 24x15 with a 405/25/24 in the rear. I don't want to bag my truck. Can some please help a brother out?

Re: How about some pics of Static Dropped C-10's

Bigsmitty75:
R u going to have room to run a 15" wide rear wheel and not narrow the frame? If u don't have to narrow the rear frame: Just do a flip rear kit (5-7" drop) and 3" spindles and 2" coils for the front.
If u do have to narrow the rear frame: it sounds like u r in over ur head, find a shop close to u and pay them to do it...

Re: How about some pics of Static Dropped C-10's

I am going to narrow my rear end in order to accommodate the 24x15 rim in the rear.
