Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

I think the patterns on the 'rails are different top to bottom, so you'd probably have to drill. Also have to think of carrier bearing mounting and e-brake cable pass-throughs...

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Theres 2 rivets on the top and 3 on the bottom. I will probably just drill 2 extra holes and put three bolts on both sides. Looks like the drive shaft passage is the same either way. Striaght shaft no carrier. My cut outs for the exhaust on the one I have look kind of bad. I basicly cut diamonds out of them with a sawzall. Heres a pic. Does anyone think I haved damaged the strength of the crossmember. Just trying to make a good decision in preparing for the no limit shock relocators.

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

To go 5", 'drop shocks' will be down to appx 3 1/2" travel. (and laid over like crazy) thats 1 3/4" bump, and droop, from RH. Check into the shock relocators. BTW, try a 3" spring, and a 2" block. Your kidneys, and your girl's kidneys will thank you. Just because they sell 5" drop springs doesn't make them a good idea. - kinda like chain steering wheels.

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

rob is there enough room with this conversion to still have my 29" x 15.5" tyres,in the pic it seems pretty close to the axle centreline.
anyone bought a kit that is running a big rear wheel/tyre setup ?

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

I am running 18 x 9, with a 6" backspack (really should be 4 3/4 to fit perf.), 275/40/18, there is still 4"+ from the tire to the shock. I don't see any problems.

Good looking kit. Do these come powder coated or natural?

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

All the brackets are powder coated machine grey. They will fit with any of the aftermarket bolt-on C-notch kits.

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Rob,

I'd like to order kit 3GC-RR-100 & 3GC-RR-101 A. Also does the panhand clear after market covers? Mine sticks out farther than the stock?

Tom

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Yes, the panhard should clear, we have 1 3/4" from the stock cover, but, if not, we will custom build you a bent bar at no extra cost, and swap with you.

Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

Truck info.
1971 LWB with about 5"-6" rear drop with helper air bags. No c-notch. Ride is fantastic now. I have the shock kit as you can see in the video. Thanks for a great product. I have 20" wheels 10" wide in rear.

After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Would there be any differences in the part #'s for a 69 suburban with 3" springs and 2" blocks?

Cool Re: 63-72 Chevy P/U Rear Shock Mount System

RdoubleU,
was this you a couple of years ago at Year One car show in Braselton, GA.





If so we talked for awhile. I had my 07 Tahoe there and took it out on the road course.
