Re: Corvette Suspension Install

I am thinking of going this way on my 70 2wd blazer. I want this thing on the ground like my 71 swb but I do not want to cut the floor out to do it. My thinking is by installing the diff up tight to the floor you would be able to raise and lower (air bags) from that point and not need to cut the bed floor since the diff does not move, just the A arms do.

Re: Corvette Suspension Install

IIRC, Frizzle Fry fit the body of the truck on a complete C5 frame with suspension and drivetrain already in it.

Here you go. Not alot on the body drop but might help. If you have any questions just post them on that post and I will try and get to it.

So are you doing a pu or blazer?
